White and Horford's back-to-back treys gives Boston the lead (0:44)

The Celtics scored on back-to-back possessions to take the lead in the fourth quarter. There is a time and a place.

We have arrived at the NBA finals after a wildly entertaining NBA season. The Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics are both trying to win their first titles in a decade.

No one on the Boston roster had played in an NBA Championship game before the finals. Golden State's 123 games of Finals experience to Boston's zero games was the largest gap since 1997.

The Celtics and Warriors could be epic.

Boston's inexperience on the NBA's biggest stage wasn't a big deal.

Golden State appeared to be in complete control for most of the contest, but the final 12 minutes were different.

Boston trailed by 12 points at the start of the fourth quarter, but went on a run led by Al Horford.

Horford led the team with 26 points, followed by Jaylen Brown and White with 24 and 21, respectively.

The Celtics became the first team in NBA Finals history to win a game by double digits after trailing by double digits.

The Celtics dominated the Warriors in the fourth quarter and ended the game on a 20-5 run that caught the attention of several stars.

Klay makes history

Klay Thompson passed King James for second place on the all-time playoff 3-pointer list in the second quarter, a sign of how dangerous the Warriors are from long range.
