In a battle between inter-conference postseason contenders, the Boston Celtics took down the Golden State Warriors by a score of 94-86. Paul Pierce led the way with 26 points, as the Celtics collaborated for a dominant defensive performance.
So how did it all go down?
After dropping 54 points on the New York Knicks, Stephen Curry followed up with 25. Unfortunately, he shot just 6-of-22 from the floor as Avery Bradley led an elite defensive performance.
As a team, the Warriors shot just 34.0 percent from the field and 21.7 percent from beyond the arc.
With Pierce firing, Bradley defending and Jeff Green doing it all, the Celtics managed to pick up a much-needed win. They're now 31-27 and just three games out of fifth place.
Here come the Celtics.
