Celtics-Warriors score, takeaways: Jaylen Brown, Al Horford and Boston steal Game 1 in Golden State
A 17-0 fourth-quarter run helped lead the Celtics to a comeback victory in Game 1
The Golden State Warriors entered the night undefeated on their home floor during the 2022 NBA playoffs
and for three quarters it looked like they would continue that trend in Game 1 of their NBA Finals series against the Boston Celtics.
However, things changed in a major way over the course of the final 12 minutes of action as the visitors
walked into Chase Center and outscored the Warriors 40-16 during the fourth quarter to come away with a 120-108 win.
The stars for both sides came to play as Stephen Curry led all scorers with a game-high 34 points while Andrew Wiggins
Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole combined for 44 points, nine rebounds and seven assists of their own.
In the end, that was not enough to overcome the performance from Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford
and Derrick White as the road team was able to steal home-court advantage in Game 1.
