Through 3 Quarters

Down two at the end of last quarter, the Golden State Warriors have now snagged the lead. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Boston Celtics 92-80 three quarters in.

The Warriors have been riding high on the performance of point guard Stephen Curry, who has shot 7-for-13 from downtown and has recorded 30 points and four boards. Boston has been led by point guard Marcus Smart, who so far has 12 points and four assists in addition to five rebounds.

the Celtics have lost 78% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know

After a few days' rest for both teams, the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics will meet up at 9 p.m. ET June 2 at Chase Center. Golden State is out to keep their 11-game home win streak alive.

The Warriors bagged a 120-110 victory over the Dallas Mavericks last week. Golden State's success was spearheaded by the efforts of shooting guard Klay Thompson, who shot 8-for-16 from beyond the arc and finished with 32 points, and power forward Draymond Green, who had 17 points and nine assists along with six boards.

Meanwhile, Boston sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 100-96 win over the Miami Heat on Sunday. It was another big night for Boston's small forward Jayson Tatum, who dropped a double-double on 26 points and ten rebounds in addition to six dimes.

Golden State is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Indiana Pacers Jan. 20 easily too and instead slipped up with a 121-117. In other words, don't count the Celtics out just yet.
