Warriors vs Celtic Prediction: Here is why the Celtics will win

The NBA 2021-22 seasons is just two games away from completion and if the Warriors are able to win an away game tonight, then the season will come to an end today. For the Celtics, it is a must-win game as they are down 2-3 in the season after 5 games. If they manage to win tonight, Game 7 will be a blockbuster night. The prediction and betting platforms have pinned their hope on the Celtics. Even we predict a win for the Celtics in tonight’s Game 6. Here are the reasons why the Boston Celtics will win tonight:

  1. One of the main reasons why the Celtics may win tonight will be the home advantage. Fortunately, the Celtics will be hosting the Warriors at home in Game 6. Playing before their home crowd, the Celtics boys will be forced to push themselves harder to avoid a defeat before their home fans. Added to hit, the fans will surely try to make sure their team comes out victorious and force Game 7 to decide the NBA 2021-22 winner.
  2. Celtics’ defense has been one of the best this season. However, in the last game despite a strong show by the defense, the forward seems to have wasted a major chance. In tonight’s game, the Celtics’ defense will have to work to stop Stepn Curry. They were highly successful in the last game when they did not let Curry score even one 3-pointers. It was the first time since November 2018, that Stephen Curry failed to score a 3-pointer in a game, that is after 288 games. Marcus Smart has been key to the Celtics’ defense this year.
  3. The other reason why the Celtics may win tonight is the depth of scoring that the Celtics have. The Celtics’ offense led by Jayson Tatum has been remarkable this season. In the playoffs with an average of over 114 points per game, they are ahead of the teams who have been part of the playoffs this season, including the GSW. The offense of the Boston Celtics comprises the likes of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford, and Grant Williams.

Celtics vs Warriors Game 6 Prediction: Why GSW will find it tough to win

The Golden State Warriors have been one of the most consistent teams this season. They ended their Western Conference run as the No. 3 team with 53 wins and 29 defeats. In their first playoffs, they were up against Denver Nuggets whom they defeated by 4-1, and ended the next leg to clash against Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies could not do much to stop the advancement of Stepn Curry-led side as the seven games series ended in 4-2 in favor of the Warriors.

In the conference finals, they were up against Dallas Mavericks. The Warriors did not find much difficulty in defeating the Mavericks. They won by 4-1 and were crowned the Western Conference champions. In the NBA 2022 finals, they are just one game away from being crowned the champions of this season. The NBA Championship Odds and the NBA Championship Predictions are all speaking the same language, “Warriors 2022 Championship.”
