Warriors Take Game 2 of NBA Finals With 3rd-Quarter Takeover (107-88)
We’re all even in the Finals! After Boston used a fourth-quarter run to steal Game 1, it was the Warriors with a third-quarter spree that spelled the difference in Game 2. Golden State took a two-point advantage into the break before outscoring Boston 35-14 in the third quarter as Steph Curry had a game-high 29 points with five trifectas.
The Warriors exploded in the third period with a pair of runs to bookend the stanza. They opened the quarter with a 12-2 sprint out of the gate before ending the third on a 19-2 melee, concluding with Jordan Poole’s half-court buzzer-beater.
