Boston has lost seven times in the postseason, but has won the following game each time. The game’s best scorer was Brown, who had 27 points, 17 of which came in the first quarter, when the Eastern Conference champions led 33-22.
The Boston Celtics remained unbeaten in two consecutive games in the playoffs and based on a spectacular offensive performance by their Big 3 of Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart, took a resounding 116-100 win over the Golden State Warriors to take a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals on Wednesday night in Game 3.
The rim was closed for the Western Conference champions, whose Draymond Green had a game to forget, as he was tossed for six personal fouls, barely scored two points, and grabbed four rebounds. The match’s most prominent players were Stephen Curry and Jayson Tatum. The team’s ability to keep this run going will be determined by future occurrences.
