Junior Holiday nets 26 while Celtics leads Mavericks 2-0 in the NBA Finals.

Bostona -- Jrue Holiday contributed points. Derrick White injected a chase-down block. Additionally helping with their defense and passing were Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.   

The Mavericks can quit obsessing about Boston's top player.   

Every Celtics player participating in the game is enabling them to approach an unparalleled 18th NBA championship close-by.   

Holiday had 26 points and 11 rebounds; White dashed down the court to swat away Dallas's last chance to make it a one-possession game on Sunday night; Boston beat the Mavericks 105-98 to grab a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals.   

"I'm really tired of hearing about one guy or this guy or that guy and everybody trying to make it seem anything else than Celtic basketball," Boston coach Joe Mazzulla remarked.   

" Everybody that stepped on that court today made winning plays on both ends of the floor."   

Along with his 18 points, Tatum made up for a poor shooting night with 12 assists and nine rebounds.   

Brown scored 21 with three steals; White had 18 points and three steals; Peyton Pritchard's only shot of the game was a banked half-courter to beat the third quarter buzzer and provide Boston an 83-74 advantage.
