Warriors vs Celtics live stream: How to watch game 6 of NBA Finals online tonight
It's almost time to watch the Warriors vs Celtics live stream for game 6 of the NBA Finals, and this one could be the last. And while Boston shows up with a lack of momentum, they can't think about anything but winning tonight. As the game 5 NBA Playoffs live stream showed us, the Celtics could not follow the game 4 loss with a win — breaking their streak of wins following losses this post-season.
The big star for the Warriors in game 5 was Andrew Wiggins, whose post-season has been a palate cleanser from his history. Wiggins, who has demolished Jayson Tatum on defense, posted a double-double, with 26 points and 13 rebounds in game 5. Oh, and then he sealed the game with a dunk over Derrick Wright.
Speaking of Tatum, while his 27 points did lead the Celtics, his fourth quarter was a sad state of affairs. He missed four of five shots in the final frame, and posted a record nobody wants to have: most turnovers in a single post-season.
Boston is likely most upset because Golden State beat them without a strong performance from its golden child: Steph Curry only contributed 16 points to the overall total. If the rest of the Warriors can lift this team up to win, with a middling performance from Curry? That's not good for Boston's chances of forcing a game 7.
The Celtics kept making mistake after mistake — with 10 missed free throws and 18 turnovers — and they're likely hoping that their hometown crowd can push them to be the better version of themselves.
But the bettors think this series could go the distance — and these numbers have stayed pretty similar since game 5. Per DraftKings Sportsbook, the Celtics are the 4-point favorite with a -175 moneyline (wager $175 to win $100). Golden State is an underdog at +150, so you wager $100 to win $150. The over/under is 210 points. Here's everything you need to know to watch the Warriors vs Celtics live stream:
The stakes couldn't be higher for the Boston Celtics heading into Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night. With a win they'll keep their championship hopes alive and force a decisive Game 7. With a loss, their season will come to an end and the Warriors will win their fourth ring in the past eight years under coach Steve Kerr.
At one point, Boston held a 2-1 lead in the series and things looked to be going its way. However, two straight poor performances in the fourth quarter now has the Celtics on the brink of elimination. Especially deflating for the Celtics is the fact that they held Steph Curry scoreless from beyond the arc in Game 5 and they still weren't able to walk away with a win. It seems unlikely that Curry is going to have two consecutive poor shooting performances. The good news for the Celtics is that they have proved adept at bouncing back after losses in this postseason. They're 7-1 directly after a loss in the playoffs, with their only loss coming in Game 5 against Golden State. Plus, they get to play in front of their home fans, so perhaps they'll get a boost from them.
The Boston Celtics look to defend their home court and force a Game 7 when the Golden State Warriors come into town on Thursday night for Game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals.

After taking care of business at home in Game 5, the Warriors have built a 3-2 series lead over the Celtics, who now have their backs against the wall after losing consecutive games for the first time this postseason.
Stephen Curry, who was the leading scorer in Games 1 through 4, took a step back in Game 5, making way for Andrew Wiggins to shine, as he finished with 26 points and 13 rebounds while tasked with guarding Jayson Tatum.
Tatum finished with 27 points on 10-of-20 shooting, but he worked for everything he got in Game 5.
"We've been in this situation before," Tatum said following Boston's Game 5 loss. "It's not over," a statement that has drawn parallels to what he said when the Celtics faced a 3-2 series deficit in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. In that round, Tatum delivered a signature performance to force a Game 7, but the Celtics are facing a different beast in a Warriors team that is one win away from its fourth title in eight seasons.
Can Tatum dig deep in a must-win situation or will the trio of Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson prove to be too much as the title is within reach?
