NBA Finals: Celtics Beat Golden State Warriors in Game One

In Game One of the NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics scored nine three-pointers in the last quarter to overcome a 12-point deficit and defeat the Golden State Warriors 120-108.

The Warriors lead 92-80 and had not lost in their previous nine home games in the playoffs. Stephen Curry scored a game-high 34 points.

However, Jaylen Brown scored 10 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Celtics to victory.

Game two of the best-of-seven series will take place in San Francisco on Sunday.

After five unsuccessful playoff trips in the previous 12 years, Eastern Conference winners Boston made a surprise return to the Finals.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr remarked, “You have to give them credit.”

“They just came in and put on a great fourth quarter performance.” That’s all there is to it. They were well-deserving of their victory.”

Al Horford, who led the team with 26 points, admitted that he has been “waiting for this moment” for a long time.

The 36-year-old also stated that he wants his teammates to be at ease and not feel pressured by the situation.

He explained, “I wanted to make sure our boys came out here and played freely.” “I wanted them to understand that this is simply a game, and that they should enjoy themselves.”

“We have a lot of fantastic folks here who are very invested in what we’re trying to do.”
