7-time NBA champion Robert Horry believes the Celtics-Warriors NBA Finals series will go the full seven games.  He sits down with BetOnline All Access' Drew Butler to discuss.  The Warriors host Boston at home in Game 2 as a -4 point favorite.

Jaylen Brown fueled the late charge and scored 24 points for the Celtics while  Al Horford hit six 3-pointers.  Ultimately this would become the most lopsided fourth quarter in NBA Finals history with Boston winning 120-108 Game 1 Thursday night.

Horford finished with 26 points and the Celtics outscored the Warriors 40-16 in the final 12 minutes after trailing by 15 points late in the third quarter.

“I felt like the guys kept finding me time after time. Also Derrick White hit some tough shots there, too,” Horford said. “I was just getting the looks, knocking them down. That’s that.”

One has to expect the Warriors will be out for sweet revenge at home Sunday night.

The Warriors were unable to sustain momentum from a 38-point third quarter that put them ahead 92-80.

“It’s not ideal but I believe in who we are and how we deal with adversity, how we responded all year, how we respond in the playoffs after a loss,” said Stephen Curry, who scored 34 points. “So learn a lot from that fourth quarter, obviously they made a lot of shots. It seemed like they didn’t miss ’til deep into the fourth. When you have a team that just finds a little bit of momentum like they did and they keep making shots, it’s tough to kind of regain that momentum.”
