Golden State Warriors Form


Golden State’s run to the 2022 NBA Finals was a relatively smooth one.

They followed up a 4-1 series win against Denver and 4-2 success against Memphis with a 4-1 victory over Dallas in the Western Conference Finals.

The Warriors got off to a losing start in the NBA Finals though, dropping Game 1 at the Chase Center.

They were beaten 120-108 by Boston on opening night, but hit back in Game 2 with a 107-88 victory.

Stephen Curry led the way for Golden State with 29 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins both struggled with their shooting as they each ended the game with just 11 points.

Kevon Looney shot a perfect 6/6 as he ended the game with 12 points though, and Jordan Poole made an impact off the bench with 17 points.

Draymond Green dished out seven assists to go along with nine points and five rebounds.

Over the course of the playoffs so far, Stephen Curry has unsurprisingly been the key to Golden State’s success.

Curry is averaging 26.6 points, 6.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game in the 2022 postseason.

Klay Thompson is averaging 19.1 points per outing, while Jordan Poole is putting up 17.8 points per game.

Andrew Wiggins is averaging 15.8 points per matchup to go along with 6.8 rebounds.

Boston Celtics Form


Boston have engaged in a couple of marathon scraps to make it to the NBA Finals.

They swept Brooklyn in the first round, but then went the full seven games with both Milwaukee and Miami to make it here.

The Celtics made a flying start to the NBA Finals with a 120-88 road win over Golden State in Game 1.

They were unable to register back-to-back wins at the Chase Center though, getting blown out 107-88 in Game 2.

Jayson Tatum finished the game with 28 points, six rebounds and three assists.

He was only one of three players to hit double digits in scoring, with Jaylen Brown and Derrick White the other two.

Tatum had 17 points, six rebounds and three assists, while White chipped in with 12 points and four rebounds off the bench.

Having had good shooting nights in Game 1, Al Horford and Marcus Smart each contributed just two points on Sunday.

Boston do boast two players averaging over 20 points per game in the postseason despite the Game 2 struggle.

Jayson Tatum is leading the team with 26.3 points per game to go along with 6.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists.

Jaylen Brown is putting up 22.7 and 6.8 rebounds per outing, while Marcus Smart is combined 15.9 points per game with 6.0 assists.

Al Horford’s shooting difficulties lowered his average to 12.1 points per game. He continued to lead the team in rebounding though, with 9.3 boards per game.
