The Boston Celtics were able to rally back to secure a huge win during Wednesday night’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
After giving up Game 2 to the Golden State Warriors in the Bay Area, the Celtics did what they needed to do and won in a strong 116-100 victory.
The entire starting lineup for the Celtics was impressive on Wednesday, with four of them scoring double-digits and Robert Williams grabbing 10 boards.
The Celtics had four guys go for 10-5-5 in Game 3.

The last quartet to do that in the NBA Finals?

Wow, that’s some good company to be a part of.
If the Celtics keep playing as they did Wednesday night, they really could win the Finals.
It wasn’t an easy victory and there looked like a time when the Warriors were going to come back and maybe win.
But the Celtics kept it together and were a wonderful mix of both offense and defense throughout the night.
Most importantly, the entire team was pouring it on.
The statistic about the four strongest players on the team is just another example of that.
Meanwhile, the Warriors were having issues.
That simply wasn’t the case with the Celtics, who were really working like a cohesive, strong, functional unit.
Boston hasn’t looked this good in a while and they will need to keep up in Game 4 if they want to grab a 3-1 lead in the series.
But don’t count the Warriors out – they are well aware that they didn’t play super well and will do what they can to change that.
