Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors (By: Khum)
Boston Celtics - Golden State Warriors
This is a matchup we could see in the NBA Finals in June and both teams are riding winning streaks at this point.
The Warriors have the highest streak they had this season with 9 wins in a row and they come to Boston for their 10th and their 9th on the road.
Boston have their own 5 games winning streak and 10 home consecutive wins that they look to extend.
Though the champions from Golden State are crushing the total lines lately and the Celtics have plenty of high scoring games as well, who has followed the NBA for the past years will know these two teams respect each others a lot, they are playing playoff basketball against each other and both coaches emphasize defense in their matchups.
In the past two seasons they have recorded numbers like 214, 180, 185 and 192.
The total line is legit set at 230 points by what these teams are posting in the last weeks and itțs even tempting to jump on the OVER, but I see here a totally different game. And I believe the UNDER is the right play, with the Wizards winning a close contest.
However, I like even more fading Steph Curry, which I see as the MVP of this season and which is csoring tons of points lately. But again, the games against the Celtics are different. For the 4 games in the last two seasons he scored 49, 9, 23 and 16.
He scored 49 and 23 in oracle Arena while scoring 9 and 16 in Boston's TD Garden.
Do you know what's the difference between the 49 points game and the other 3? Marcus Smart missed that game for Boston.
Now, for the first time in a Warriors - Celtics matchup Smart is a starter. And the fierce defender will take on Curry making everything possible to anihilate the best shooter in NBA history.
Let's go green!
