The Golden State Warriors will host the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the NBA Finals Monday night at Chase Center. The series is firmly in balance after a hotly contested Game 4.
The Boston Celtics battled inconsistency throughout the playoffs, especially at home. However, they have been excellent on the road in the playoffs.
They swept the Brooklyn Nets and managed to win key road games against Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat. They will rely on Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to deliver in Game 5.
Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have Steph Curry to thank. He put in one of his finest performances in the biggest game of the season as he led his team to victory. It leveled the streak for the Warriors as they regained their home court advantage after losing Game 1 at home.
However, Jordan Poole and Draymond Green are yet to play at their best and the Celtics will be wary of that.

Golden State Warriors Preview
The Warriors entered the playoffs fearing Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green didn’t get much playing time together due to injury. However, the Dubs retained a next-man mentality. Poole excelled after cracking the top five, allowing Curry to return to the lineup.
With snipers like Curry, Thompson and Poole, the Warriors have a three-headed monster that is a threat on the half court. With Green on offense, the Warriors restored their league titles. They are in good shape to win their fourth championship in eight years.
Golden State Warriors Predicted line up
peak guard -Steph Curry; shooting guard -Klay Thompson; small forward -Andrew Wiggins; Power forward – Draymond green; Center – Kevon Looney.
Boston Celtics preview
After a rocky start to the campaign, the Celtics weren’t expected to make much noise, despite Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. To their credit, they’ve turned things around since the start of the year and look like a completely different team.
The Celtics have the best defense in the league. Their suffocating defense and elite rim protection prevent the opponent from scoring. Boston also poses a threat from the perimeter. They have two bonafide scorers in Brown and Tatum who can turn things around.
Boston Celtics predicted roster
Peak Guard – Smart Marcus | Shooting guard – Jaylen Brown | Small Forward – Jayson Tatum | Front power – Al Horford | Center – Robert Williams III.
