In the NBA world, the Boston Celtics finally snapped the Golden State Warriors’ record of 54 won games at home. The most impressive part of the game was the Celtics matching the Warriors in points for the entire second half.

The Warriors have always had the tendency of causing turnovers from their desire to assist each other. The Warriors never took the lead once in the 4th quarter.

Although it was still a win, Lebron was seen yelling at point guard, Kyrie Irving, who seemed to not care about the situation.
