At the Chase Center, the two teams have long been equal. Thus, at the break, Steve Kerr’s players only led by two units when returning to the locker room (52-50), it was then that they stepped on the accelerator to definitively distance the Celtics. Because, during the third quarter time, the Californians managed 12 minutes of great intensity, both offensively and defensively, to fly away thanks to a scathing 35-14. With a 23-point lead before starting the last quarter, the Warriors were able to calmly manage, especially since the visitors failed to repeat the blow of the first game with a crazy comeback at the end. On his way, Stephen Curry assumed his role as leader and carried his team to victory overnight from Sunday to Monday.
