Game 1 - Celtics 148, Lakers 114

In a game that was never in doubt, the Celtics stormed out to a 14-point lead at the end of the first quarter and rolled to a 34-point victory in what would become known as the "Memorial Day Massacre." Danny Ainge led the Celtics in the first quarter, scoring 15 of Boston's 38 points. Scott Wedman was the main offensive option in the second quarter, scoring 11 points to help extend Boston's lead to 30 points at halftime. Kevin McHale took over in the third quarter, scoring 13 points. The Celtics capped off the performance by scoring 40 points in the fourth quarter, finishing with 148.

Wedman finished 11-of-11 from the field, setting a Finals record for the most shots attempted without a miss. He was also a perfect 4-of-4 from 3-point range, finishing with 26 points. McHale matched Wedman with 26 points, and Ainge finished with 19. All 12 Celtics players scored in the game. James Worthy led the Lakers with 20 points, while Magic Johnson added 19 points and 12 assists. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, limited by foul trouble in the first half, finished with 12 points in 22 minutes.
