The NBA Finals finally got underway on Thursday night as the Boston Celtics and the Dallas Mavericks tipped off game 1 of the series. With Tom Brady hyping up the Celtics, it was only fitting for the Mavs to counter with one of their own NFL maverick, Patrick Mahomes.

Before the game against the Celtics, the Mavs shared a hype video narrated by Patrick Mahomes. Taking her husband’s side, Brittany Mahomes shared the video to show her support for the Dallas side.

The IT couple of the NFL were spotted multiple times on the courtside during the Mavs game this season. Apart from the Chiefs QB, Travis Kelce also attended a Western Conference Finals game against the Timberwolves but didn’t get the love the Dallas crowd showed for their native, Mahomes.

Mahomes’ support wasn’t limited to the hype video; the Superbowl winner also backed his side with a message on the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter).

With most of the USA backing the Mavs against the Celtics, Dallas went into the game with sky-high confidence, but the TD Garden had some other plans for them.

Mavericks Go Down Despite Patrick Mahomes Support

Concerns were raised by the experts over how the Celtics would handle one of the most potent backcourts in the league, consisting of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. But with Kristaps Porzingis’ return, the tables turned in quick time and the Celtics blew the Mavs out of the water in game 1.

The home side entered the game, activating their afterburners as the Cs took a 21-point lead in the first half. The Mavs tried to rally back in the next two quarters, but the damage was already done as the Celtics won 107-89. For the Celtics, Jaylen Brown led the scoring yet again with his 22, followed by 20 by Porzingis. Jayson Tatum recorded a double-double consisting of 11 rebounds and 16 points despite having a forgettable shooting night.

On the other hand, Luka Doncic scored a game-high 30 points coupled with 10 rebounds. The hostile crowd made sure to embrace Kyrie Irving with a chorus of boos, who only managed 12 points. Jaden Hardy scored a quickfire 13 points in 11 minutes, but the Celtics’ defense stood tall to thwart any potential onslaught.

Game 2 of the series will take place on Sunday at the same venue, and Patrick Mahomes and Co. hope for a better outing before the series heads to Dallas.
