Tatum, Brown help Celtics Hold off Desperate Mavs, go up 3-0 in Finals

The Boston Celtics, one win away from sweeping the NBA Finals, remain unconfident.

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown secured a 106-99 victory against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Celtics have a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, bringing within one victory of the 18th title in franchise history.

The Celtics will face the Mavericks in Dallas for Game 4.

Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic contributed to the Celtics' victory, with Irving averaging 35 points.

The Mavericks' comeback hopes were thwarted by Luka Doncic's fouling out with 4:12 left in the game.

The Celtics managed to maintain their lead with a mid-range jumper from Brown, and missed 3-point attempts down the stretch.

The Celtics improved to 7-0 on the road in the playoffs and have run their overall winning streak to 10 games.
