If we told you that Steph Curry would be held to 16 points ahead of Game 5, you’d think that the Celtics were heading back to Boston on Thursday with a chance to clinch the NBA Finals. But Golden State received some scoring support from Andrew Wiggins (26 points) and Klay Thompson (21) to prevail.
The Warriors are now win away from capturing their fourth NBA Championship in the last eight years.
Curry remains the betting favorite to become NBA Finals MVP. FanDuel was dealing Curry at -360 as of Tuesday morning. FanDuel also installed the Celtics as -3.5 favorites in Game 6 with the total set at 210.
We’ve climbed out of a 3-2 series hole earlier in these playoffs, and our team has faith that we can do it again.https://t.co/QkwwkgISvz

Jayson Tatum led the Celtics again with 27 points and 10 boards. Tatum is the second betting favorite to win the NBA Finals MVP award. FanDuel offered him at +400 as of Tuesday morning.
DraftKings was dealing the following odds on the series-clinching win:
+145 Warriors in 6
+135 Warriors in 7
+290 Celtics in 7
Boston has overcome a 3-2 series deficit once already in the 2022 NBA Playoffs. The Celtics came back to defeat the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks to advance to the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals.
