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

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

On top of that, in Doncic’s opinion, the game will also feature the best duo in the league.

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

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

Doncic continued.

“Just watching their game,” Doncic said. “I think a lot of people see this. I think the way they play. I know people try to separate them but they fit together, they went to the playoffs last year, so I think they’re two really great players.”

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

Wednesday’s game is good.

3 young stars

Doncic, Tatum and Brown are going to be some of the biggest stars in the NBA for years to come.

Here’s a rundown of each player’s stats so far this season:

  • Doncic: 33.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, 8.1 assists per game
  • Tatum: 30.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists per game
  • 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, got the Mavericks within three wins of a trip to the NBA Finals.

Both teams hope to get there this season.
