The Boston Celtics dominated the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night in a great all-around effort from the team.

For a while, the hottest team in Boston was the Bruins, but it seems like that title solely belongs to the Boston Celtics now. They can not stop winning and no one is complaining.

It seems like it might in fact be true that there can be addition by subtraction. Now that Kyrie Irving is gone the Celtics look like a much better team.

On Veterans Day, the Celtics had a tough matchup.  The Mavericks might not have an amazing record but they definitely have a talented roster. Luka Doncic is one of the league’s brightest young stars and is paired alongside “the unicorn” Kristaps Porzingas.

This game wouldn’t be a walk in the park for the Boston Celtics, especially without Gordon Hayward. They will have to get used to him being gone.

Hayward fractured his hand and will be out 6 weeks. This can only be described as a series of unfortunate events.

This seemed like Hayward’s comeback season. He was thriving and looking like Utah Gordon Hayward. Now that has been put on hold.

Hayward needs to rest and take his time returning. Then he will hopefully come back and play just as well as he did before his injury.

Thankfully the Boston Celtics were able to get the victory on Monday night and put on quite the performance. Here are the 3 major takeaways from Boston’s 116-106 mashing of the Mavs.
