If Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors is anything like Game 1, we should be in for a fun evening.
Boston’s stellar performance in the fourth quarter resulted in a 120-108 win on Thursday, with the Celtics beating Golden State 40-16 in the final frame. The Cs were sharp from 3-point land, hitting 9 of 12 shots from deep in the fourth. Al Horford had one game of his own, leading Boston by 26 points and draining a career-high six 3-pointers. Stephen Curry’s 34 points weren’t enough to propel the Warriors to a win, and now they lie 1-0 down in less favorable territory to head into Sunday’s contest.
From the bevy of celebrities in attendance to the Chase Center’s new culinary options, Thursday’s game had it all. What will game 2 have to offer?
Here are some of the best sights and sounds of Sunday’s NBA Finals action:
