2024 NBA Finals: Game 2 was there for the taking, but the Mavs couldn't take it

BOSTON — It’s the moments the Dallas Mavericks will likely lament from their Game 2 loss to the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals more than the overall performance.

Luka Donu010diu0107 blamed himself, the turnovers and missed free throws in the 105-98 loss at the TD Garden on Sunday night, but he more than acquitted himself in the wake of an injury that had him listed as questionable before the game.

“I think my turnovers and my missed free throws cost us the game,” said Donu010diu0107, who scored 32 points with 11 rebounds and 11 assists.
