Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics: prediction for the NBA Finals

The Golden State Warriors take on the Boston Celtics in the second game of the NBA Finals. Will the hosts level the score? Here's our prediction.

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors were one of the favorites to win the championship. The club easily defeated Denver (4-1), Memphis (4-2), and Dallas (4-1) on its way to the finals. The Warriors appeared unstoppable, but lost the first game against Boston (108-120). 

Steve Kerr's team looked decent throughout the game and was in the lead heading into the fourth quarter, but then completely collapsed and lost 16-40. The team will be looking for redemption in the second home game. 

 

Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics are having a fantastic season, too. In previous playoff rounds, the Celtics knocked out such formidable opponents as Brooklyn (4-0), Milwaukee (4-3), and Miami (4-3). The visitors were considered outsiders heading into the final series, but Ime Udoki silenced their critics. 

The Celtics put a lot of pressure on the Warriors and took advantage of their own attacking opportunities (120-108). In the upcoming game, Boston will strive to build on their success and increase their lead.

Prediction

In the opening game of the final series, Boston displayed strong character and a desire to win. However, we doubt they can win today - Golden State have received a wake-up call and will certainly play better in game two. Steve Kerr's men will avoid making the same mistakes twice in a row. The hosts should win in regulation time.

Our prediction – Golden State Warriors to win in regulation
