NBA Finals Game 2: Warriors’ third-quarter run buries Celtics

Good morning, I’m Dan Gartland. I did indeed stay awake for the whole Finals game, although I’m not sure the Warriors did.

A series of runs (so far)

If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the first two games of the NBA Finals, it’s that both teams are capable of going on runs to completely bury their opponent.

It was the Celtics who put the game out of reach with a 40–15 fourth quarter in Game 1, and last night it was the Warriors’ turn. Golden State outscored Boston 35–14 in the third quarter of Game 2 en route to a 107–88 win that evened the series at a game apiece.
