CELTICS BEAT WARRIORS!!! SNAP THE DREAM STREAK....

The Celtics wore down the Warriors in an 109-106 victory that demolished the dream streak of home wins, beating the Warriors by relentless grit basketball, ending the dream streak of the Stephen Curry led mythical Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors has been on dream streak 54 home game winning tear vying to break the NBA record 72 wins in a season but were stopped by the relentless grit basketball of the legendary Celtics .... the franchise with 17 rings, the most of any NBA team.

“(The Warriors) didn’t play well but I feel like our guys deserve credit for having something to do with that,” said Celtics coach Brad Stevens.

Celtics team inspirational player, Isaiah Thomas felt the team can play at this level and continue to win. “It says a lot about this team and hopefully gives us confidence for us to end the season off the right way and playing at a high level.” said Thomas. “That was the funnest game I’ve been a part of just because every time they hit us with something, we hit them right back. Usually teams don’t do that. That’s when they go on their run.”

NBA's top player, Stephen Curry had 29 points, but he missed 3-pointers and had seven turnovers. “I think the biggest meaning is .. the idea that we can bounce back from a night like (Thursday) where we extended a considerable amount of energy and came up short, flew here, got in late and came to compete again,” Coach Stevens said.

Golden State is the top scoring team in the NBA at 115.1 points a game, while the C’s are No. 5 with 105.6 per. Nobody counted on the Celtics to stop the dream streak..... no one counts on the Celtics for a major playoff run.....

When Danny Ainge traded Kendrick Perkins for Jeff Greene, Celtics Championship Banner #18 was lost in the trade. It is time to bring it home #18 to the NBA's greatest basketball team.
