Celtics explode in 4th quarter to take Game 1 over Warriors 120-108
The "Road Warriors" that are the Boston Celtics defeated the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 120-108. Al Horford led a 40 point Celtics 4th quarter to bring the Celtics back from a double digit deficit. Boston's defense was also stifling in that 4th quarter.
Jaylen stepped up down the stretch and Derrick White (21 points off the bench), Marcus Smart, and Payton Pritchard all hit big 3's. The Warriors were held to just 16 points in that final quarter (and 3 of those points came with all the scrubs in the final seconds of the game).
Ime Udoka singles out Marcus Smart for celebrating on the bench while Payton Pritchard and Derrick White were playing huge minutes in the fourth quarter to fuel Boston's comeback. Said the Celtics are a team and always rely on the team to win.
