Celtics outhustle Warriors in Game 3: Best tweets, memes and reactions

Game 3 of the NBA Finals was a blowout for two quarters, a close game for a literal minute and ultimately a dominant showing by the Celtics on their home court.

Boston won 116-100 to take a 2-1 advantage in the series over the Warriors.

The tremendous trio of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart were immense with 26, 27 and 24 points respectively.

After all his talking pre-game, Draymond Green fouled out with just two points. Steph Curry finished with 31 points while Klay Tompson had 25.

The Celtics jumped out to a big lead early and kept the Warriors at arms’ length for most of the first half. Another ridiculous third-quarter run by Golden State put them ahead briefly but Boston flipped the switch in the fourth and ran away with it.

Here are the best reactions to all the action:

How Twitter reacted to the Celtics and Warriors in Game 3

The Warriors’ third-quarter run, including a seven-point play, had Twitter talking.

The Celtics had a response though. Despite losing control for a brief moment, they stormed back with a vengeance.

Not everyone was happy about that.

Fans in Boston are too busy dreaming of lifting a trophy to care though.

The Celtics and Warriors will continue the series with Game 4 on Friday night in Boston.

Golden State bounced back after their Game 1 loss. Now Curry and company need to reset and do it again. Meanwhile, Tatum and the Celtics have to keep their cool and keep up the energy if they want to take a commanding lead in the series before it heads back to San Francisco.
