In Utah tonight, we’re seeing two first-time All-Stars making a case for next year’s mid-season classic already. After two quarters, Donovan Mitchell has 22 and Jayson Tatum is 10-for-13 from the floor for 25 points.

It’s been a good old fashion “anything you can do, I can do better” match up between the 21- and 23-year-old. To start the second quarter, they traded buckets in a six-possession stretch in a mano-y-mano, one-on-one duel.
At the half, the Celtics cling to a two-point lead on, yes, a Tatum drive to close the 2nd quarter. The second half starts shortly.
