DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds remaining and the Mavericks avoided a fourth-quarter collapse in a 110-107 victory over the Boston Celtics. The Celtics trailed by 11 points with three minutes to go before Jaylen Brown put them in front in the final minute with a short jumper. Doncic answered with a 3 before Brown pulled Boston even at 107-all with another bucket. Doncic scored 31 points, while Brown had 29 and Jayson Tatum added 28 in an All-Star matchup for the trio after Brown and Tatum were named Eastern Conference reserves earlier in the day.
