Why the Celtics can cover

Forward Jayson Tatum is an all-around talent for the Celtics. Tatum can get a bucket at all three levels with no problem and has short vision to find the open man. The Duke product has a smooth-looking jumper from the mid-range and 3-point land. Tatum also has long arms and plays sound defense. The three-time All-Star is averaging 23.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and seven assists per game. In Game 5, Tatum racked up 27 points, 10 rebounds and four assists.

Williams provides Boston with a physical presence down low. He is a defensive beast who plays with outstanding effort. He can switch and defend multiple positions. The Texas A&M is a glass cleaner and an excellent rebounder. He has pulled down eight-plus boards in three straight games while averaging 2.4 blocks per game.

Why the Warriors can cover

Golden State has been in this position before and will look to cash in once again. The Warriors look to secure a victory and win their fourth title in eight years. The Warriors’ offense is explosive with playmakers and shooters all across the court. They were ranked second in the 2022 NBA playoffs in scoring (112.3), while shooting 37 percent from downtown.

This squad has plenty of championship experience and that has been on display in this matchup. With Boston leading the series 2-1, the Warriors have won two straight games and now lead 3-2. Guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are elite shooters who have dominated in big-time contests before.
