NBA finals score: Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics, Steph Curry record


It was the Steph Curry show on Friday before the Celtics pulled off an astonishing comeback to crush the Warriors in Game 1.

Boston pulled off a stunning fourth-quarter comeback to shock Golden State 120-108 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Friday (AEST).

It looked like a record-setting Steph Curry would draw first blood for the Warriors but the Celtics exploded at the death to secure a 1-0 series lead.

Starting the fourth quarter down by 12 points, the Celtics went on a 9-0 run to get within three before Golden State nailed their first basket for the term.

The rest of the quarter followed a similar script as Boston went on an astonishing streak to outscore Golden State 40-16, making it the most lopsided fourth quarter in NBA Finals history.

Curry was deadly accurate from downtown in the first quarter but some of Boston’s defence left plenty to be desired, as he was given far too much space to size up shots from beyond the arc.

Aussie basketball legend Andrew Bogut tweeted: “Boston losing @StephenCurry30 numerous times in the first quarter for WIDE open threes is inexcusable.”

The Warriors were riding hot on Curry’s coattails as he poured in 34 points including seven three-pointers, but Boston bounced back with some long bombs of their own, dropping 21 three-pointers for the match.

Al Horford (26 points) and Jaylen brown (24 points) led the way for the visitors, while Derrick White chipped in with 21 valuable points of his own.
