What a last quarter by Boston, something like 9 of 11 3 point shots made, defence smashed them. Horford unbelievable.
Suffer Curry

Yeeeeees !!!

What a seriously strange game. Stephen A. got it right when he said if Boston are leading by 2 at the half after defending so poorly, then look out !

But it took them until the last quarter and up against a big deficit to finally defend Curry and then they threw down everything as well to totally over run them.

Amazing. Horford and White went crazy in the last.

Great win. If they keep restricting GSW to 100 points they will beat them in most games.

Amazed at the Celtics going up, playing wonderful two way basketball.

Great series, really enjoying it.

Yep Curry is showing Tatum up in this series. Tatum has been pretty ordinary I reckon. Shot 36% today. That won’t cut it in play offs.

As good as Curry was the Celtics continue to shoot themselves in the foot in their losses. Poor ball handling, too many turnovers, poor shot selection and giving up offensive boards to Warriors. Out rebounded 55-42 by a much smaller team. That’s unforgivable.

Hopefully they can bounce back in game 5 as they have done all post season. The play offs have shown if the Celtics can avoid the brain farts and horror errors they are prone to, then they win. If they limit errors Curry can’t continue to carry GSW as he has done all series so far.

Definitely playing better away!

Wonder why...?

They need to get Tatum inside for rebounds and assists, instead of trying to continually take Curry to the ring
I agree. If he can play to his strengths, he can take the Celtic's all the way imo.

Poor by the Celtics again today. Real bad 1st and last quarters.

Never seen an NBA team turn the ball over as much as this. Simply staggering.

Particularly a team playing for the Championship. The Celtics have it all to do now. Can they reverse their fortunes at home to tie the series? I certainly hope so.
