For Luka Doncic, the Tatum / Brown duo is “probably” the best in the NBA

Dallas is in Boston tonight. The opportunity for Luka Doncic to express his admiration for the Celtics’ start to the season, currently in first place in the NBA with 13 wins in 17 outings.

“They’re probably the No. 1 team in the league, and they’ve probably got the best duo in the league, too.”, thus released the Slovenian to ESPN. “And we’re at the Garden – it’s always a special game. You have to be 100%. If you’re not, you’re probably going to lose. So it’s an important game.”

Top scorer at the start of the season with 33.5 points per game, Luka Doncic faces the best scoring duo since Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown combine 55.5 points per game. It’s a little better than Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey, who combine their side 55.2 points per game.

“I know people try to separate them but they go well together, they went to the final last year so I think these two are really great players” continues Luka Doncic.

The Slovenian is all the more impressed that Boston is at the top of the league… without Robert Williams III.

“They have one of the best records and are missing a key player, Williams III. I’m impressed by his game, I’ve always enjoyed it. That he’s gone, and that they have that record, makes me say all that. »
