Well, we had a complete flip of the script yesterday in the Mets game as the Brewers finally found their offense and exploded for 10 runs. Today we move back to the hardwood as we go into game six of the finals. The Warriors are one win away from another championship. Can they overcome this Boston defense and take home the title, or will the Celtics force yet another Game Seven?

It’s gotten so obvious that even the announcers are breaking it down. The turnovers are killing the Celtics. The Warriors have stepped up their defense and it is causing the Celtics problems. The more physical play from Golden State has thrown the Celtics off, and the points and extra possessions the Warriors are getting off them have been the difference. You can’t force the other team to be less physical with you. The Celtics have to play smarter with the ball, whether that is getting more trips to the line or making them pay with shot selection for over committing. The Celtics have been a team that can adapt to what their opponents do in a series. That time is now here as they have had two games of the same type of attack from the Warriors.

If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. Look for Golden State to do the exact same thing they have done for the last two games until Boston proves they can beat it. The scary part is that Curry had his worst game of the series. The Warriors have played poorly on the road throughout the playoffs and now have to overcome a Boston team with their backs against the wall and a hostile Boston crowd. Wiggins has been a difference maker over the last two games and filled the void left by Curry having an off night as he led the team with 26 points. 

Warriors vs Celtics Pick: Boston -3.5.
After losing back to back games for the first time and both by 10 points, the Celtics are going to come out firing in this game, and with the Garden behind them, they are going to force a game seven.

Same Game Parlay:
Celtics -3.5, Jayson Tatum Over 28.5 Pts, Klay Thompson Over 19.5 Pts, Marcus Smart Over 5.5 Assists and Jayson Tatum to score 30+ Pts.
