2022 NBA Finals Game 5: Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics Preview

Warriors 2-2 vs Celtics 2-2

When: Monday, June 13th, at 9:00p.m.

Where: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA



Warriors: James Wiseman (Out/ Knee)

Celtics: No Injured Players

Keep an eye on:

Draymond Green: is 2-11 from the field over the last two games and is averaging 4.3 points on 30.7 percent shooting from the field. To make matters worse, Green has been held scoreless in the fourth quarter over the last three games while having more fouls than assists. I'm stating the obvious, but he has to be more aggressive to score the ball and at least make Boston think he will shoot the ball. He has to find a way to keep the Celtics defense honest or it will be tough to keep Green on the floor as the game progresses to money time.

Jayson Tatum: is shooting 34 percent from the field in the finals thus far and has nine assists and ten turnovers in their two losses. Compare that to his 22 assists and four turnovers in Boston's two wins and you can see just how much of a difference he makes in determining if things goes Bostons way. The shooting percentage is one thing, Andrew Wiggins isn't an easy win, however the turnovers is unacceptable. Tatum is too talented to hand over extra possessions to Golden State, especially with the way Steph Curry is shooting the leather off the ball. Bottomline, Boston needs a signature Tatum performance tonight in game five, without it could mean the series for the Celtics.
