Jaylen Brown and Al Horford combined for 50 points as the Boston Celtics mounted a fierce fourth-quarter rally to stun the Golden State Warriors 120-108 in Game 1 of The Finals.

The loss is Golden State’s first defeat at home this postseason.

After entering the final frame down 12, the Celtics outscored the Warriors 40-16 in the fourth to draw first blood in the championship series. Horford collected 11 of his 26 points in the contest within the last five-and-a-half minutes of the game.

Star guard Stephen Curry finished with 34 points after registering 21 points in the opening frame. His six 3-pointers in the first quarter established an NBA record for the most threes ever converted in a single frame in The Finals.
