The Boston Celtics beat the Golden State Warriors, 116-100, in Game 3 of the NBA Finals to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

The Celtics won with solid fundamental basketball. Defense and rebounding ruled the day and the Celtics gutted it out with an outstanding display of what a great defense is capable of on the biggest stage.

As I noted, this series could end up being a major data point in the age-old argument of great offense vs. great defense. When the Celtics lost Game 2 it was largely due to their defense not being at the level it had been throughout the rest of their playoff run. But it seems that they are back to their winning ways after Game 3.
