Warriors v. Celtics, NBA Score Update: Warriors Show Some Fight, Down 88-81 Through Three

The Boston Celtics were in complete command through most of the third quarter at TD Garden, but the Warriors won’t go away as they trail 88-81 heading into the fourth quarter. The C’s are dismantling the Golden State Warriors’ defense for the most part, but Monta Ellis and David Lee are keeping Golden State within striking distance.

Monta Ellis has 29 points and 6 rebounds while David Lee has 22 and 7 rebounds, the two of them combined account for more than half the teams points so far. Paul Pierce had a solid third quarter, now with 20 points and 5 boards.

Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson had a telling tweet about Ray Allen’s shooting tonight:

Smart yanks Curry and brings in Acie Law, presumably because Curry is the one who keeps leaving Ray Allen open

Curry can’t keep up with him off of screens playing a large part of Ray Allen’s 23 points on 9 shots so far. The Warriors are struggling from downtown going 3 for 13 (23%) while the Celtics are dominating going 7 for 15 (46%).

Boston is doing a good job at keeping Golden State uncomfortable and out of transition, forcing them into half court sets instead of letting them run up and down. Can the Warriors get some stops and steal a win on the road?
