Al Horford scored 26 points hitting six 3-pointers, Jaylen Brown added 24 points, and the Boston Celtics rode the most lopsided fourth quarter in NBA Finals history to a 120-108 victory over the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 on Thursday night. Steph Curry led the Warriors with 34 points. Game 2 is Sunday night back at Chase Center.

After a painful loss to the Boston Celtics in the series opener, the Golden State Warriors star guard Steph Curry praised Al Horford and Derrick White (21 points) for their contributions in getting the Celtics their 1-0 lead: “You hope they don’t stay that hot but you also have to do something about it and we have to figure that out.”
