The Golden State Warriors had everything going their way: Home court advantage, the Splash Brothers back in the NBA Finals, and a lot of rest. Still, the Boston Celtics walked into the Bay Area and left everybody stunned after a wild comeback.

At the end of the third quarter, the Warriors held a 92-80 lead and looked to be on the verge of running away with the game after outscoring the Celtics 38-24 in the frame. But, the final 12 minutes were a completely different ballgame.

The Celtics scored 40 points and held the Warriors to just 16 in the fourth quarter, and the Celtics stole a 120-108 victory in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

The NBA world exploded after the Celtics defeated the Warriors in Game 1

It looked ugly at first for Boston, especially after Stephen Curry made history in the first quarter.

But, it all boiled down to the final 12 minutes, and the Celtics’ improbable comeback was the talk of the evening among fans and other NBA players.

The fan reactions from both teams are surely interesting, and although it is just one game, they were quick to overreact.

Game 2 will be on Sunday night.
