The Dubs, held to 32% shooting, watched their deficit grow to a season-high of 26 points with a Jonas Jerebko three-pointer made with 6:47 left in the first half. With efforts lead by Barnes and Thompson, the Warriors went on an 11-2 run of their own, cutting Boston's lead to 17. The team also stepped up their defensive game, dropping the Celtic's shooting to 44.6% by halftime, as the Warriors continued to trail 65-49.
