Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors: Injury Reports, Predicted Lineups & Starting 5 – June 13, 2022 | 2022 NBA Playoffs

The Golden State Warriors will host the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday, June 13.

The Celtics are having an incredible season, despite early reports of player unrest. They swept the heavy favorites, the Brooklyn Nets, in the first round before eliminating the defending champions Milwaukee Bucks in the second.

Boston then got the better of the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals in seven games. They will once again bet on Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to come in big.

Meanwhile, the Warriors have had a smooth playoff run so far. They beat the Denver Nuggets 4-1 in the first round before Steph Curry and Jordan Poole helped beat the Memphis Grizzlies in six games. The Warriors went on to defeat the Dallas Mavericks to make their sixth NBA Finals appearance in eight years.

This game is crucial for both teams as the winners of Game 5 will be just one win away from being crowned champions.
