The NBA Finals are tied up after the Warriors blew the Celtics out 107-88 in Sunday’s Game 3 in Chase Center.
The Warriors turned the game upside during the third quarter when they outscored Boston 35-14. The Warriors grabbed a double-digit lead over the Celtics during the third frame with a 10-2 run. The decisive spurt was powered by Stephen Curry (29 points, six rebounds, four assists), who scored five points, including 14 points, two boards, and one assist during that timeframe.

However, it was third-year guard Jordan Poole (17 points, two rebounds, three assists, and two steals) who stole the show after knocking down back-to-back triples to give Golden State a 23-point leading going into the fourth quarter. Poole’s second three-pointer, a 39-footer, sent the Chase Center into a frenzy, with Curry dapping Poole up with a big smile across his face and a congratulatory hug.
“I want the ball at all of the ends of the quarters and shot-clocks,” Poole said. “My teammates looked for me, and I knew I had him on his heels and having endless range, I guess — I saw the rim.”
From there, Poole scored eight points to cement Golden States’ series-tying win. The Warriors and Celtics are now tied at one win apiece as the series shifts to Boston for Games 3 and 4 at TD Garden.
