The Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics meet in the NBA Finals. These two sides finished their respective conference runs, and are about to start the last stage of their championship quests. Golden State has the home-court advantage due to a better record during the regular part of the season. Though, the Celtics showed several times this year that the venue of the game doesn’t mean a thing to them. After all, Boston was better in Miami in Game 7.

Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics Preview

Golden State Warriors

The Dub Nation is excellent in these playoffs, and apart from some slight struggle in the series against the Memphis Grizzlies, we haven’t seen them in problems since the postseason started. Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, and Poole guide this team very well throughout all the situations, and it is no wonder why the bookmakers see GSW as a solid favorite to win the title. 

We need to say that the Warriors have nine consecutive home victories in the playoffs and that they still didn’t feel the taste of defeat at Chase Arena. The way they handled all the rivals at home was very impressive, and we just once saw a close game, which was against the Mavs in the West Finals. 

Steph scored 25.9 points in the playoffs, Klay 19.8, Poole 18.4. Though, are eyes here are on Andrew Wiggins, who not only drops 15.8 buckets each night, but is by far the best defender in the West, and we saw that on numerous occasions during the postseason.

Boston Celtics

This is the best defense in the league. Period. To hold the Heat three times to under 100 points, twice in Miami, is worthy of any praise. But not only that, the Cs have eliminated the Milwaukee Bucks in the semis and, before that, swept away the Brooklyn Nets in four games. Just stop for a moment and think about that. 

Their core – Tatum, Brown, Smart, plus Horford, played for a long time, and it practically came to the league around the same time. So these guys are like a family and know one another perfectly.

Tatum leads the way in scoring 27.1 points, Brown adds 22.9, while Smart has 14.9 buckets. Horford plays very good basketball, averaging 12.3 points and 9.3 boards. Though, each of these guys is playing a magnificent defense, which is the biggest quality of this unit. It only remains to see what will be the officiating criteria in the finals.

Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics Head to Head Games

The Warriors and the Celtics met twice this year. The interesting thing is that both sides won on the road. The Warriors were better in Boston on December 17, 111-107. Meanwhile, the Celtics beat the GSW at Chase Center on March 16, 110-88.

Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics Pick

The Dub Nation is unbeatable at home and adding that the Celtics had a very exhausting series against the Heat, our pick for this battle would be the home team to win. These two factors will have a massive impact there and, to be honest, are the only reason why we take the Warriors in Game 1.

Our Verdict: Warriors win
