The Boston Celtics continued to hold the NBA's best record so far at 47-12, after withstanding Luka Doncic's triple double to get the 138-110 victory on Saturday, Philippine time.

Jayson Tatum scored 32 points, eight rebounds, and three assists in 37 minutes of action. He also shot five triples.

Jaylen Brown added 25 points, while Kristaps Porzingis added 24.

It was enough to nullify Luka Doncic's triple double of 37 points (14-25 FG), 12 rebounds, and 11 assists.

This is his 12th triple double of the season.

Kyrie Irving added 19 points, but shot only nine of 23 field goals.

Boston now has a 10-game winning streak dating back to February 5. Their last loss was against the Lakers.

The win strengthened the Celtics' hold on the top seed of the East, while the Mavericks slid to eighth in the West with a 34-26 record.
