Good morning everyone but especially …

Fighters of the Golden State

Stephen CurryThe incredible game was far from over and the biggest reason was that the NBA Finals were tied in both games in Game 5. Finally, he got help from his friends last night. The Warriors used their support cast’s form and a strong defensive effort to win a crucial Game 5 win over Boston 104-94.

  • Curry scored just 16 points and missed all three of his three point attempts. It breaks the NBA record of 233 consecutive games (regular season and post season) with at least one 3 pointer.Extending back to 2018.
  • Andrew Wiggins He came to the rescue with 26 points and 13 rebounds. Clay Thompson There were 21 points and the team scored five out of nine 3 points.
  • Gary Payton II (15 points) and Jordan Pool (14 points) boosted the bench.

The Warriors – usually dominant in the third quarter – scored 11 outs in that frame but made up for it by winning the fourth quarter by nine points. The fact is that they can withstand the storm. His excellent performance anywhere without Curry makes the win even more impressive – and highlights how great a coach Steve Carey isWrites NBA reporter Colin Ward-Henninger.

  • Ward Henninger: “It’s no accident that the Warriors’ supporting cast is stepping into a very big moment. Constantly making a point. Going too long without watching game action not only makes you rusty but also makes you feel isolated from the team. “

When the NBA Finals draw 2-2, the teams that win Game 5 win the series 73% of the time.. Golden State now has a chance to hit that number on Thursday night.

Honorable mention

And not a good morning for that …

Boston Celtics

Here is what happened: The Celtics have lost a series of games this post-season.. Entered last night, they were a great 7-0 in the games after losing this post season. Now, his back is against the wall, and he blames himself.

  • Celtics turned the ball 18 times. And now they are 1-7 in this post season (0-3 in this series) when they change it more than 15 times.
  • Boston Lost his first 12 threes.The longest series ever to start an NBA Finals game.
  • Boston went free at 31 for 21 instead of 31.

It was a win-win game for Boston. If I told you before the game that …

  • As a team, the Warriors will score 40 (22.5%) for 9 out of 3 and Curry will not hit anyone.
  • The Celtics will win the rebounding battle by eight and 12 less fouls.

… You might guess that Boston won, maybe even easily.

This was not the case, however, as nothing came easily to the visitors. The Celtics had the highest turnover (four) as field goals in the fourth quarter, which was probably exhausted by the brave efforts of the third quarter. both of them Jason Tatum And Jillian Brown The entire third quarter and almost the entire fourth game, only 1:19 left when there was no doubt about the result.

Not everything is lost for Celtics. They came back from a 3-2 series loss against defending champions Box two rounds earlier and escaped Game 7 against the Hats in the conference final.. But they missed a golden opportunity last night.

Not so honorable mention.
