The Golden State Warriors welcome the Boston Celtics back to Chase Center tonight at 02:00 (Uk time) for Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Dubs bounced back in Game 4 and are right back in the driver’s seat in the series, and they have a chance to take the lead in front of home fans.

The Golden State Warriors proved me wrong on Friday night, winning Game 4 by 107-97 at TD Garden in Boston whilst facing injury issues and a hostile crowd. Despite dealing with a foot injury, Steph Curry came to dominate, scoring 41 points, on 14-26 from the field. He was by far the best player on the court, but Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole also contributed with 18,17 and 14 points respectively.

It’s been a very difficult series for the Dubs so far, but their tenacity, teamwork and willpower brought them right back into the series, and they are now in an excellent position to take the lead in front of home fans. One of the key factors in their victory last game was their aggressiveness on the boards, winning the rebounding battle by 55-42 and grabbing 16 offensive boards.

The Boston Celtics gambled away an opportunity at a 3-1 lead in this series, and now that we’re all even, they are travelling to San Francisco to face one of the most dangerous home teams in the league.  That said, the Celtics have been terrific on the road this year, but we’re nearing the end of the finals and they’ve never done this before. They are in a very tough position at the moment and it’s difficult to imagine them bouncing back now. They missed their chance.

As well as the Celtics have played in the start of the series, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have averaged just 22.2 points per game, and are coming off another mediocre outing in game 4, going for 23 and 21 points respectively. The Celtics play slow, and they play tough defence, but when it comes to scoring, they have shown a knack for taking bad shots. It’s their first time in the finals and it’s understandable, but it also means they won’t be able to take down the Warriors. They simply don’t have enough this year.

Odds as at 3 pm June 13th. Odds may now differ.

The Warriors are right back in the series and are once again favoured by the bookmakers to go all the way at 1.70 odds. Steph Curry had a monster game last time, and they are once against hoping to lift that trophy. The Warriors have been one of the best home teams in the league, covering the spread in 62% of their games and winning 10 of their 11 home games this tournament. Yes, they lost Game 1 by a landslide, but they have recovered, and there’s a reason why I backed them to win the title in my NBA Finals 2021/2022 Analysis & Best Bets article – they have the talent, experience and defence to pull it off.

12, 28, 26, and 23 – a total of 89 points and an average of just 22.2 points per game, compared to almost 27 points per game during the regular season. So, Tatum has scored more than 26 in just 1 of the 4 games in the finals and the bookmakers still have his points line at 26.5 in a Game 5 on the road. That’s value. The Warriors have put the clamps down on Boston’s number one option, making him shoot just 8-23 last game, and I don’t expect him to bounce back in enemy territory tonight.

I predicted Jordan Poole to be the Warriors’ diamond in the rough this year, and that’s exactly what has happened in the absence of Klay Thompson, as he averaged 18.5 points during the regular season. With Klay back on the court, Poole’s averages have dipped down to 12.5 points per game and 24 minutes per game. But Poole has also averaged  6.25 three-point attempts per game and he’s been shooting 36% from beyond the arc. He has been draining his threes, and I have no problem backing him to get at least 2 tonight.
