Celtics vs. Mavericks live score, result, highlights from Jayson Tatum vs. Luka Doncic matchup

Two of the best players in the NBA are set to face off on Thursday night when Luka Doncic and Jayson Tatum go head-to-head.

The red-hot Mavericks will put their NBA-best seven-game win streak to the test at home against a Celtics team that is coming off of their worst loss of the season, falling to the Shai Gilgeous-Alexander-less Thunder by 33 points.

Fans won’t want to miss this contest if it’s going to be anything like the last time these two teams faced off. The Celtics got the best of the Mavericks in Boston back on Nov. 23, when Tatum and Jaylen Brown combined for 68 points to outlast a 42-point outing from Doncic.

Dallas is playing much better basketball this time around, while Boston has cooled off from its blistering start to the season.

Will the Mavericks keep their win streak rolling or will the Celtics bounce back from an ugly loss earlier in the week? The Sporting News has you covered with live updates, highlights and more from all the action.
