The Golden State Warriors are now on the East Coast as their NBA Finals streak moves to the side of the Boston Celtics. It’s been a very entertaining series so far, with the Warriors falling asleep at the wheel in Game 1 and letting a double-digit lead evaporate, before responding in Game 2 with an epic blowout from their opponent. That means the Warriors are now 10-1 in the playoffs at Chase Center, with their only loss being Boston’s big win.
The Celtics haven’t been as dominant at home as the Dubs recently, battling to a 5-4 playoff record. Most recently, they struggled in a home loss to the Miami Heat in Game 6 in front of their fans. Apparently, it’s not exactly the most intimidating place to play despite their rabid and knowledgeable fanbase that’s sure to cause some noise on Wednesday night.
IMO the Celtics should ignore the ‘absolute stink at home’ part of the playoff script this time

We did our job of separating Games 1 and 2 in San Francisco and gaining home field advantage. Now we’re ready to do the homework as we bring the Finals back to Boston.https://t.co/tORvBPccWG

The last time the Dubs were in Boston was in a 111-107 win spurred by dominating play from Andrew Wiggins. He arguably topped both Boston stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown that night, cementing his place as an All-Star and hinting to Dub Nation that he could be a major factor in the playoffs.
In a game featuring Steph Curry, Jayson Tatum, Draymond Green and Jaylen Brown, the best player on the court might have been Andrew Wiggins.

Wiggins is Golden State’s second leading scorer in this series behind Stephen Curry, averaging 15.5 points per game on 44% shooting (40% from downtown) while adding 5.5. rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game. I’m sure Warriors fans are expecting Klay Thompson to burst after two substandard offensive performances in the first two games of the Finals, but don’t be surprised if Wiggins has his own goal night at this gym. !
Golden State is +140 on the moneyline by DraftKings, will they win as road underdogs?

Who do you have in Game 3, Warriors or Celtics?
The Celtics have understood enough about the Dubs to adapt and get a W in front of the Boston faithful
The Warriors love winning road games in the playoffs; they take this one too baby!
