Boston Celtics Form


After sweeping Brooklyn in the first round, Boston had back-to-back seven-game series on their way to the finals.

They came from behind three times to beat defending champions Milwaukee, and then sealed a 4-3 series win over Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals to set up this meeting with Golden State.

Boston’s Game 7 win in Florida was their third straight win on the road, and they extended that streak in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

The Celtics came storming back to outscore the Warriors 40-16 in the fourth quarter and claim a 120-108 victory.

Jayson Tatum was kept quiet as a shooter as he finished the game with 12 points to go along with 13 assists and five rebounds.

However, the trip of Al Horford, Jaylen Brown and Derrick White picked up the scoring slack as they went off from three-point range.

Horford ended the game with 26 points and six rebounds, while Brown put up 24 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

White contributed 21 points, while Marcus Smart played his part with 18 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Golden State Warriors Form


Golden State enjoyed a straightforward run to the 2022 NBA Finals.

They started with a 4-1 win against Denver before downing Memphis 4-2 to reach the Western Conference Finals.

The Warriors rolled over Dallas in that series, 4-1, to set up this winner-takes-all series with Boston.

Golden State find themselves behind early in this series though, having lost 120-108 in Game 1 at the Chase Center.

They held a 92-80 lead after three quarters, but some sloppy mistakes in the fourth and some red-hot shooting from the Celtics saw Boston come back to win the game.

Stephen Curry finished the game with 34 points, five rebounds and five assists for the Warriors.

Andrew Wiggins had 20 points and five rebounds, while Klay Thompson put up 15 points and Otto Porter Jr had 12.
