Celtics take a 2-1 lead in the series in the first NBA Final game at TD Garden since 2010
Incredible atmosphere inside Boston’s TD Garden for the first NBA Final game since 2010.
“Already before the game you could feel the energy. It felt great,” said Jayson Tatum.
Very intense the chanting against Draymond Green, who got fouled out.
“It definitely felt different,” Marcus Smart commented about the atmosphere at TD Garden.
“It definitely adds fuel to the fire for us, gives us goosebumps to be able to say that. Took this team, took this organization 12 years since they have been here, to have it back and be in the Finals. When we look up and see those banners, see those numbers, it’s something that gives us, like I said, that motivation to go out there and try to be the next person up.”
“It was great,” Jaylen Brown said. “Our team obviously is in a position to win some games and do something special. Coming out each and every night, putting our best foot forward is what we’ve got to do. When we win as a team, it feels even better. Tonight was a great team win for us.”
Brown and Tatum powered the Celtics to. a game 3 win over the Warriors.
The fight is far from over. “We’re on the road. Must-win game, Game 4,” Steph Curry said. “We had a must-win game after a tough one in Game 1. And we got Game 2. The flow, obviously we still feel like we can win the series. Got to come out with the right intensity and focus in Game 4.”
