The NBA Finals match-up between the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics moves back to TD Garden for Game 6 on Thursday, June 16th. Only half a point prevented us from cashing a nice ticket at 5.00 odds last game, but we’re back with another 3-piece Bet Builder for Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors. Tip-off starts at 02:00 (UK Time)

Having made it to the NBA Finals for the first time since the 2009/10 season, the Celtics are still hoping to bounce back in the series despite being down 2-3 and losing the last 2 games. They had a perfect opportunity to gain the upper hand in game 4, but a tough home loss followed by a terrible road performance has them on the brink of elimination. The good news is they’ll be playing in TD Garden where they have performed very well this season, but based on what we saw in the last two games, it doesn’t look like they are ready to mount a comeback.

Despite a slow start in Game 5, the Celtics kept their cool and managed to come back in the 3rd quarter, even taking the lead at one point. But their offence has proven once again that it still has a lot of work to do. Despite being the better 3-point shooting side, the Celtics committed a whopping 18 turnovers with just 36 points in the paint and finished the game with just 18 assists. This is nowhere near good enough to get you to the title, and the Dubs proved it by winning the game despite having one of their worst shooting nights from downtown this season.

The Golden State Warriors are once again back in the NBA finals with a game in hand, and hoping to win their 4th championship title since the 2014-15 season. They enjoyed a fairly simple road to the finals this year, winning all of their series in 6 games or fewer. The Dubs played 2 games fewer than the Celtics this year, and although this may not sound like much, this is the Celtics’ first appearance in the finals with this squad, and Steve Kerr and his boys have already done this before. True, they have some fresh recruits who are still green behind the ears, but with Steph, Klay and Dray leading the way, they know it’s going to be okay. Sorry about that.

We all know the Dubs as an elite 3-point shooting team, but that wasn’t the case last game, going 9-40 from beyond the arc, and their franchise centrepiece Steph Curry went 0-9 for three. Remember the last time that happened? Hold that thought. This was the perfect opportunity for their opponents to gain the upper hand, but a combination of the Warriors’ experience, defence and a lot of careless Celtics plays prevented that from happening. The Dubs pushed the ball in the paint and it worked, scoring 50 points inside and shooting 46.6% from the field. They also did an excellent job handling the ball, with just 6 turnovers and 23 assists in the game.

Odds as at 2 pm June 15th. Odds may now differ.

The Celtics are favoured to win Game 6 at 1.60 odds, but the Dubs’ odds to win the title have shortened from 1.70 to 1.27. You know what that means, right? The bookmakers are putting too much value on home advantage in this series. But in the first two games, both teams have won one home game and one road game each. Although this alone doesn’t necessarily mean that the Warriors will win tonight, we have seen enough from them to make the claim. Even with Curry having one of his worst offensive nights in the playoffs, the team rallied and got the job done nonetheless. There’s a lot of value on the Warriors tonight, and I have no problem backing them to win.

Earlier in the article, I asked if you remembered the last time Steph Curry failed to make a three-pointer in a game? H exploded in the very next one. Even without that, Steph has averaged 30.6 points per game, even with his latest 16-point outing, and he’s been the Dubs’ top scorer in the series. The Celtics managed to slow him down last game, but let’s face it, it was more likely just a cold shooting night. I expect a bounce back performance from Curry in this one, and another 30+ point performance.

You ready for another night of the ‘Marcus Smart Experience’? What? A solid overall game with excellent defence, but at least 3 turnovers. As good as Marcus has been at times for the Celtics, he can get very uncomfortable with the ball in his hands and the result is 16 turnovers in 5 games, for an average of 3.2 per game. And he’s not even their primary ball handler or scorer. Marcus had 4 turnovers in Game 5, and I don’t expect much to change in this trend.
