On Wednesday, Luka Doncic will lead the Dallas Mavericks to TD Garden to face Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics.

The game will feature some of the NBA’s best rising stars.

Moreover, according to Doncic, the best duo of the league will also perform in the game.

The Mavericks superstar believes that Tatum and Brown are the best duo in the NBA right now.

“They’re probably the No. 1 team in the league and probably have the best duo in the league,” Doncic said. “And we’re at the Garden – it’s always a special game. You have to come 100 percent. If not, you will most likely lose. It’s a big game.”

Doncic continued.

“Just watching them play,” Doncic said. “I think a lot of people can see that. I think that’s how they play. “I know people try to separate them, but they fit together, they went to the Finals last year, so I think those two are really great players.”

Doncic has a lot of respect for Tatum and Brown, but the point guard is a phenomenal player.

Wednesday game numbers will be good.

3 Young Stars

Doncic, Tatum and Brown will be some of the NBA’s biggest stars for years to come.

Here’s a look at each player’s numbers so far this season:

  • Doncic: 33.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, 8.1 assists
  • Tatum: 30.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists
  • Brown: 25.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.4 assists per game

Last season, of course, Tatum and Brown led the Celtics to the NBA Finals.

Doncic, meanwhile, took the Mavericks within three wins of a trip to the NBA Finals.

Both teams hope to get there this season.
