NBA 2018-19: 3 Talking Points as Boston Celtics breeze past the Dallas Mavericks
- Celtics dominated the Mavs to win the game 114-93.
#2 The parity in three-point shooting for both teams
This was a big contrast in the three-point shooting of both the teams. While the Celtics shot at a whopping 46.7% from the arc, the Mavericks shot at a mere 25%.
This made a huge difference from the get-go as three-point shooting is one of the most lethal weapons and if anything dominates the other in this category then they're bound to win the game.
The Celtics are one of the best three-point shooting team and this was just a small reminder of that. They're currently ranked sixth in the league in the three-point shooting percentage. This goes down to their style of play and their ability to find the open man at the best places.
Their best player Kyrie Irving is also shooting at a very efficient 3-point percentage of 40%, which is one of the best in the league.Published 05 Jan 2019, 20:44 IST
