Analysis for Games 3 and 4
Golden State Warriors @ Boston Celtics
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have been through and done that when it comes to Basketball accolades. The best shooting duo of all time has had a long career of repeat trips to the NBA finals, and multiple Championships. They are now faced with the tough task of trying to take a hold on the series in Boston in games three and four. There is hope for the Warriors, although, and they need to start relying on their role players once again to come up big. Jordan Poole has been absent these past few weeks of playoff basketball, and his emergence as a star needs to be reconsidered if he does not perform here. Steve Kerr will draw up different defensive schemes to try and take away the wide-open threes the Celtics were getting, and hopefully end up getting stops that lead them down to the court for transition points. Bay Area fans know to never give up on this Warriors team, but things can take a turn for the worst very fast.
Boston has to feel confident about their play up to this point in the series, and their ability to limit the Warriors scoring around Curry. After a horrible game one shooting performance out of Jayson Tatum, the Celtics must feel confident in their laurels after the rest of their team started to pick it up, instead. Ime Udokah has instilled massive trust in his system, which has resulted in a great bond between players on the court. They know where to find their teammates, and what passes to make in difficult situations. If they can keep up their defensive sustainability, while also making tough shots, there is no reason to believe the Celtics won’t win it all.
