Golden State Warriors, after losing game one, came back with intent to hammer Boston Celtics 107-88 in game two to level the series at the Chase Center in California on Sunday night.

A dominant display right from the end of first quarter put Warriors in a commanding position throughout the game.

GAME 1 REPORT

The Celtics started Sunday's tie right where they left off at the end of Game One, using their superior size to frustrate Warriors shooters and swishing threes from all over the floor but it was all Warriors the rest of the way as the Celtics struggled against the more tenacious Warriors defense.

Stephen Curry picked up 29 points and Jordan Poole added 17 more to help Warriors seal a comfortable win over Celtics.

"Steph was breathtaking in that third quarter," Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said.

"Not just the shotmaking but the defensive effort. He just doesn't get enough credit for his level of conditioning, physicality and defense," Kerr added.

"The guy is amazing; he just keeps working."

The series now moves to Boston with game three scheduled for Wednesday and game four on Friday.

Celtics are vying for a record 18th NBA title to move clear Los Angeles Lakers as the sole leader of the championship. This is the first time Boston has qualified for the final since 2010 with its last title coming in the 2008 season.
