The Warriors own a 3-2 series lead after winning Game 4 in Boston and Game 5 at Chase Center to hand the Celtics back-to-back losses for the first time since late March. With a victory Thursday, the Warriors would become the first team since the 1990s Chicago Bulls to win at least four titles in an eight-year span.

DATE: 17 Jun 2022
TIME: 01:00 UTC
VENUE: TD Garden, Boston, MA, USA
The Celtics have been here before, however. They rallied from a 3-2 deficit in the Eastern Conference semifinals to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks in seven games and beat the Miami Heat on the road in Game 7 of the East Finals. They've played their best basketball with their backs against the wall, and they'll need to continue that trend Thursday night.
Boston will look for a "superstar" game from Jayson Tatum, who is shooting just 37.3 percent from the floor in the series but is averaging a series-high 7.0 assists per game. They'll also try to prevent a bounce-back game from Stephen Curry after the Warriors star failed to make a 3-pointer for the first time in 233 games.
“It’s something I dreamt about for sure, being in the league, and this is the ultimate stage,” Wiggins said. "It doesn’t get bigger than this."
Wiggins had 26 points and 13 rebounds, Klay Thompson scored 21 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Boston Celtics 104-94 on Monday night for a 3-2 NBA Finals lead.
“Coming into this year, he was an All-Star starter for a reason,” Draymond Green said. “... The bigger the challenge has been that we’ve thrown in front of him, the bigger he’s responded. You want a guy like that. When the stage gets big, they respond and play their best basketball, and that’s what he’s been doing."
One game after his 43-point performance, Curry contributed 16 points and eight assists but was 0 for 9 from 3-point range. The career 3-point leader’s NBA-record streak of 132 straight postseason games with at lest one 3 ended, along with his NBA-best run of 233 consecutive games with a 3 between regular season and playoffs combined.
Golden State is one NBA Finals win away from placing itself in rarefied air.
After taking care of business at home in Game 5, the Warriors have built a 3-2 series lead over the Celtics, who now have their backs against the wall after losing consecutive games for the first time this postseason.
