Warriors, Celtics Built Finals Teams Through Draft
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Boston Celtics face the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night. The Warriors are making their sixth trip in eight years led by the homegrown core of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. The Celtics made it over the hump this year after losing in the Eastern Conference finals three times in the previous five years. Boston won two Game 7s just to get to this point this season, beating defending champion Milwaukee at home in the second round and winning at Miami in the conference final.
