The Golden State Warriors are just one win away from a fourth NBA Championship in eight years as they prepare for Game 6 of the Finals against the Boston Celtics (Money Line – Boston 4/7, Golden State 7/5).
It’s Golden State who lead the series 3-2 after the first five encounters but if they are to win in the early hours of Friday morning, they will have to do it on the road at TD Gardens.
The Warriors will be hoping star man Steph Curry can do the business in Title Town after a disappointing performance in a 104-94 win over the Celtics last time out.
Curry failed to score a three pointer in the game, going 0-for-9 in an uncharacteristic display from the Golden States talisman.

Warriors team-mate Draymond Green believes that a “livid” Curry will only want to prove his doubters wrong even more and that will serve Golden State well ahead of their trip to Boston.
“Obviously we have spoken about helping him and I don’t think he’s been out there helpless – that’s the narrative – but everybody is doing their part,” Green said after Game 5. “Tonight, a night that he didn’t have it going, we found offense elsewhere.
“Now, that’s good for us. He was 0-for-9 from three. He’s going to be livid going into Game 6 and that’s exactly what we need.”
Boston (14/5 Series Winner) go into Game 6 knowing nothing less than a victory will do to take the Finals to a decider.
What the Celtics will hope stands them in good stead is that they have not lost three games in a row since the Christmas period.
