Luka Doncic drops 50 vs. Suns, Celtics' big win over Lakers

The NBA's Christmas quintuple-header ended with the Dallas Mavericks beating the Phoenix Suns, taking a short break, and then beating them again.

The Mavericks won 128-114, Luka Doncic had 50 points and 15 assists to complete a five-game Christmas slate, the New York Knicks beat the Milwaukee Bucks, the Denver Nuggets topped the Golden State Warriors, Boston Celtics. The Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat swept the Philadelphia 76ers.

Not as classic a game as some previous Christmases, but the Celtics still managed to make a statement as the best team in the NBA. It's always fun to watch Doncic play in games where he drops haymaker after haymaker.

Here's all the action:

  • This game sucks.
