Golden State Warriors Stats & Form
The Golden State Warriors are 2-1 down for the first time in the Playoffs this year and are going into their most important game of the season. They will have to tie things up by getting a win in Game 4 or they will go back home with their backs against the wall.
What is worrying for coach Steve Kerr is the fact that his team played pretty well in Game 3 and the Warriors still lost by 16 points. They shot 46.2% from the field and 37.5% from deep which is pretty decent especially for a Finals game. Steph Curry scored 31 points on 12-of-22 from the field and Klay Thompson scored 25 points on 17 shots.
The Warriors will have to improve on the defensive end in order to keep their chances for winning the NBA Championship this season.

Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors Betting Odds
The Boston Celtics are favorites to win Game 3 with the odds set at -165, while the Golden State Warriors are at +145.
The total point margin is set at 215 with both ways at -111.
The Boston Celtics will have a chance to get only one win away from the NBA Championship in this game. This sounds like a historic opportunity but the Golden State Warriors will be ready for the challenge. The Celtics didn’t win back-to-back home games in the Playoffs besides in the opening round series against the Brooklyn Nets. Game 3 was the second time in this series the Warriors to melt down in the final quarter which is very untypical for them and probably the last time that happened. Steph Curry is playing very well in the NBA Finals series and knowing how great of a competitor he is, he will definitely take his game to an even higher level to take the Warriors to the win in Game 4. This one will be a closer game than the previous one with the Warriors covering the +3.5-point spread.
Expert betting tip: Golden State Warriors +3.5 (-110 by DraftKings)
