Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics Betting Tip
Both teams have been amazing so far in the season and they fully deserved the chance to play for the NBA championship. The Warriors had easier road to the Finals not losing more than 2 games in a series while the Celtics needed seven games in the last two series against the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat. The Warriors were perfect at home in the Playoffs and the Celtics will have a tough time keeping the game close on Thursday. The Warriors are very fast in the offense and multiple players can score from any point on the court. Boston is the best defensive team in the league and if anybody can slow down the Warriors, it is the Celtics, but we will not witness that in the opening games of the series. Steph Curry will face the best defensive player in the league Marcus Smart. These two have history this season as Smart is the one who injured Curry in March forcing the Warriors’ star to sit out the last month of the regular season. Anyway, the Warriors will open the NBA Finals series with an easy win.
