Celtics 129, Wizards 119; Boston leads series 2-0

Isaiah Thomas (53/4/4) had a career-high scoring outburst, going 18-for-33 from the field and 12-of-13 from the free throw line. He dropped 29 points in the fourth quarter and overtime combined and came one point shy of outscoring the entire Wizards team in that span. It was the NBA’s highest-scoring individual performance since Allen Iverson’s 55-point output in 2003. Al Horford (15/12/3) double-doubled for the Celtics in the win. John Wall (40/3/14) was sensational for Washington, going 16-for-32 from the field while adding three steals and three blocks, filling the box score.

Warriors, Jazz; Golden State leads series 1-0

Up 58-46 at halftime, the Warriors held onto their lead in the second half to take Game 1. All five Golden State starters scored in double figures, led by Steph Curry (22/7/5), Draymond Green (17/8/6) and Kevin Durant (17/5/5). While the Warriors oddly went just 7-of-29 from three-point range, they held Utah’s leading scorer Gordon Hayward (12/4/4) to 4-of-15 shooting on the night. Rudy Gobert (13/8/3) led the Jazz in scoring as Utah attempted just 12 free throws compared to Golden State’s 21.
