The Warriors are one win away from another NBA championship. After closing out the Celtics in the fourth quarter, Golden State will head to Boston for Game 6 on Thursday with a chance to win their fourth NBA title in six years.
Andrew Wiggins did the heavy lifting last night, having the most important game of his playoff career with 26 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and two steals. Even though Stephen Curry had an off night after putting up 43 point in game 4, he went 0-for-9 from 3-point range, and the Warriors were still able to prevail and pick up the win at home.
Jayson Tatum finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds but the Celtics dug themselves into a huge hole early on in the game and ran out of juice in the fourth quarter. Turnovers were once again an issue for Boston, coughing up 18 giveaways which turned into 22 points for the Warriors.
