On June 3, Beijing time, the Celtics and the Warriors ushered in the first game of the Finals, although in terms of Finals experience, the Greenshirts are undoubtedly the one who is absolutely inferior (the Finals experience is 0, while the Warriors have 123 games), plus this game is still away to the Warriors' home Chase Center. Under such double pressure, the Green Shirts did not surrender their weapons as soon as they came up, but continued to attack the Warriors, and they even led by 2 points in the first half of the war, and the Warriors fought again in the third quarter, but the Green Shirts returned them a 39-13 in the last quarter, and finally won the victory 120-108, taking the lead in the finals.
The Greenshirts have come this way, it is true that Tatum is indeed the well-deserved core of the team, but the play of the second boss Jaylen Brown is also indispensable, as early as the 16-year Finals, Brown, who had not yet entered the NBA, went to the Oracle Center Arena (when the Warriors had not yet relocated to the Chase Center), saying that he would one day play the Finals, and this day from his entry into the NBA, he waited for 6 years, and now he finally came true to his dream, and Brown did not disappoint the fans.
In the case of Tatum's unsatisfactory feel, Brown also began to take over the offense intentionally, in the first half he shot 5 of 13, 12 points and 5 rebounds, although the feel is also very general, but he knows that if he does not stand up, the situation of the Greenshirts will definitely be more passive. With the Warriors leading by 15 points at one point in the final quarter of the game, Brown finally woke up and opened his "Mr. Last Quarter" mode. In a single quarter, he scored 10 points, 2 rebounds and 5 assists, helped the team blow a wave of counterattack horns, the whole game ended, he in 38 minutes of playing time, 23 shots 10, took 24 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals and 1 block of the all-around data, can be said to be the green shirts can turn the game deservedly credit.
Although Curry's offense in this game is really unsolvable, he can always respond whenever the Green shirts want to take advantage, but the Celtics, who hold the belief that the soldiers must win, also saved the decline by relying on Brown's awakening in the last quarter. As the greenshirts' most relied on double cores, Tatum and Brown have become the third pair in NBA history to achieve at least 400+100+50 teammates after the division finals, second only to Durant and Westbrook in 14 and 16 years and James and Thick Brow in 20 years. Although the overall talent is indeed slightly inferior to Tatum, Brown has been able to maintain an average of more than 20 points per game in the last three seasons, especially after the arrival of new coach Uduka in Boston this year, and also deliberately let Brown take over the game at some point.
Eastern Conference Greenshirts can kill the Heat, Brown is definitely the key, in these 7 games, he only scored less than 20+ in the G4 game, G3 once won the highest 40 points in the playoffs, so it is really necessary for Brown to get enough shots, his threat on the offensive end is no worse than Tatum, and today's first game of the Finals, Brown's feel is slightly struggling in the first half, but in the final quarter, Brown also proved himself with practical actions to help the team out of the predicament." mr.right”。 If the Greenshirts can finally cut the Warriors off the horse and successfully reach the top, the FMVP may really be taken away by Brown.
