Boston Celtics surge to 2-0 lead over Dallas Mavericks in NBA Finals | The GIST

    The GIST: One word to describe the first few games in the NBA Finals and Stanley Cup Final? “Dominant,” with the home squads firing on all cylinders. Let’s jump right in.

    Boston Celtics surge to 2-0 lead over Dallas Mavericks: Despite yet-another triple-double from Mav Luka Dončić (while he struggled with injury), the Cs soared to new heights in last night’s 105–98 Game 2 win with five players scoring double digit points, including a team-high 26 from Jrue Holiday and a near triple-double effort from superstar Jayson Tatum.

    • Now there’s a bit of breathing room before the series switches venues for Game 3 and a bit of rest for Dončić and his so far quiet partner-in-hoops, Kyrie Irving. A lot can change in two days.

    Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky secures Florida Panthers’ Game 1 win: Brick wall, waterfall, Bobrovsky does it all — the tendy stopped 32 (!!!) shots in Saturday’s 3–0 W over the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers notably took 14 more shots on net than the Panthers did, but they couldn’t break through with Bobrovsky between the pipes.

    • Will Edmonton’s leading man, center Connor McDavid, find the right fit and rebound from the shutdown? Find out in Game 2 from Sunrise, Florida, tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
