The Boston Celtics did a highly commendable job of staying in the game throughout Stephen Curry’s epic first quarter for the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Boston’s steadfastness was rewarded with a shocking 120-108 victory that saw them steal home-court advantage from the heavily-favored Dubs after just the first game of the series.
After the loss, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr admitted that the Dubs will be a bit desperate heading into Game 2 on Sunday:
“It’s different for sure. When you win Game 1 at home, there is a sense of comfort,” Kerr said, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN. “… it’s a different feeling. Obviously you go into Game 2 with more of a sense of desperation… we have won series where we lost first game.”
