Jaylen Brown scored 27 points, Jayson Tatum added 26 and the Boston Celtics rode the energy of a raucous TD Garden crowd to beat back another third-quarter onslaught by the Golden State Warriors in a 116-100 win on Wednesday night that gave them a 2-1 lead in the Finals. Stephen Curry led Golden State with 31 points and six 3-pointers. Game 4 is on Friday in Boston.
