you can overlook them."

7-of-8 shots and committed four turnovers to dig an early hole. The Celtics
closed to within eight, 30-22, after one quarter.

shots and we turned the ball over."
Golden State scored the first seven points of the second quarter to take a 15-
point edge, but Boston worked its way back to within nine at 5:55.
Thompson followed with a 3 which sparked a 19-7 run to end the quarter and
give the Warriors a 61-40 lead at the break.
Both teams traded baskets to open the third quarter until Lee made a putback
layup to begin an 11-2 run that stretched the margin to 30, 76-46, that Lee
closed with a jumper.
