Draymond Green posted a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds while Klay Thompson tallied 12 points, five rebounds and two assists.

EXCHANGING MOMENTUM SWINGS
With their season on the line, the Celtics came out of the gate with the desperation of a team facing elimination, storming out to a 14-2 lead. However, the Warriors responded with an 11-0 spurt, capped by three Dubs 3-pointers on three straight possessions, to close the first period and complete a 17-point turnaround. The run didn’t stop there, as the Warriors’ scored the first 10 points of the second period to make it a 21-0 run. And though the Warriors and Celtics continued to exchange momentum swings throughout the contest, the Dubs did not relinquish the lead for the remainder of the contest, leading by as many as 22 points in the third quarter.
