Golden State Warriors NBA Scores, Schedule, News: Warriors Start Slowly, Trail Celtics 31-30 After First Quarter

The Golden State Warriors began the game running as it looked to be a fast paced game early on, and despite a bunch of missed buckets the W’s managed to trail the Celtics 31-30 after the first quarter. Golden State started the game shooting 3-13, and finished the quarter 11-27; 40.7% percent from the field. David Lee missed a couple of shots right in front of the basket, and was not extremely effective offensively; He finished the quarter with only 2 rebounds but had 10 points despite going 3-9 from the field. Dorell Wright scored 13 while hitting a couple of threes, and paired with a couple of key turnovers by the Celtics, the Warriors scored 8 points within the last minute of the quarter to only trail by 1.

Some poor transition defense allowed the Celtics to score some easy baskets, eventually racking up 8 fast break points. Rajon Rondo had a nice first quarter scoring 10 with 4 assists while Kevin Garnett had 10 with 4 rebounds. If they W’s start hitting a few more shots, they could easily win this game.
