The battle between two heavyweight titans lived up to the hype on Saturday night, but the Celtics could not come up with enough plays during the final minute to take down the defending champions as the Warriors escaped with a 115-111 victory. Kevin Durant had a game-high 33 points and Steph Curry had 24 points, while Kyrie Irving had 32 points and 10 assists for the hosts in the setback.
