Celtics vs Warriors: what time, TV and how to watch the NBA Finals 2022 Game 5 online
The series is tied 2-2 so we head into Game 5 at the Chase Center in San Francisco with the stakes as high as ever.
History tell us that Game 5 of the NBA Finals tends to be pivotal. More than 80% of the teams that have won it go on to collect a ring. But with us all even at 2-2, it’s now a simple best of three for the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors who are keeping everyone second guessing. Two relatively healthy teams, inspired by previous success on Golden State’s home court and refreshed from having two days off, will duel in Game 5 in San Francisco on Monday night.
Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors Game 5
“It’s the Finals,” summed up Celtics star Jayson Tatum. “It’s not going to be easy. It shouldn’t be. We know we both want it, and we got to go take it.”
The first four games have been about as evenly contested as they get... except the final scores.
The Warriors have outscored the Celtics by a total of just 422-421, belying the fact that no single game has been decided by fewer than 10 points. Golden State also has slight edges in field goal percentage (44.9-44.2), offensive rebounds (40-39) and fewest turnovers (59-60), while Boston has been a touch better in free throws made (57-50) and total rebounds (171-167).
Each team has made 64 3-pointers. Stephen Curry has a series-best 25 of the Warriors’ 64 threes, including seven in 14 attempts in a dramatic 43-point performance that drew Golden State even in a 107-97 triumph at Boston in Game 4 on Friday.
“The heart on that man is incredible,” teammate Klay Thompson gushed. “The things he does we kind of take for granted from time to time, but to go out there and put us on his back, I mean, we got to help him out (in Game 5).”
Will the pace keep up in Game 5? You’ll not want to miss out on finding out...
