On Saturday, April 17th the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics meet for the second and final time this season. The Celtics won the initial match on February 2nd by a score of 111-107 and possess a current four-game win streak over the Dubs.
The Celtics hold the all-time record between the clubs with 206 in 343 meetings. Last season, the teams played twice with the Celtics winning both contests.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors continue to roll extending their win steak to four games in a row and five in their last six. The most recent coming in Cleveland in 119-101 beat down of the Cavaliers.
They’ve climbed to ninth on the Western Conference ladder and are collecting wins against teams they should beat as well as the elite clubs.
Stephen Curry’s hot streak is the primary reason for the Dubs’ success as he extended his 30 or more points scored in consecutive games to nine.
His 3-point shot cooled off in Cleveland although he still managed to score 33 points with four rebounds, five assists, and two blocks.
Supplementing his offense was Andrew Wiggins who offered 23 points, six rebounds, and six assists. Juan Toscano-Anderson had a big night off the bench with 20 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block.
Jordan Poole (17) and Damion Lee (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
The Warriors are continuing to get more opinions on James Wiseman’s torn meniscus while Kelly Oubre Jr. is out with a sore wrist.
Eric Paschall is dealing with a hip injury and will be out until mid-April. Klay Thompson (Achilles) and Marquese Chriss (leg) will miss the season.
The Celtics also enter on a winning streak having won five games in a row and seven of their last eight contests. The most recent against their historic rival Lakers.
Granted LeBron James and Anthony Davis remained out but Boston took care of business with a 121-113 victory. Jaylen Brown led the way behind a 40-point effort on a ridiculously efficient 17 of 20 shooting effort.
All five Celtics starters as well as Payton Pritchard scored in double-figures. Marcus Smart and Pritchard scored 15 each, Jayson Tatum and Tristan Thompson each scored 14 points while Kemba Walker added 12 points.
Boston won both the rebounding (48-37) and points in the paint (58-50) battles but nearly surrendered the match off 20 turnovers that led to 26 points for the undermanned Lakers.
Evan Fournier remains out dealing with health and safety protocols while Robert Williams is day to day with a knee injury.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
The Dubs will need to be cognizant of protecting the ball while the Celtics will likely enlist a combination of Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown with the task of chasing Steph Curry all over the hardwood.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Warriors +4
While both teams are winning it’s the Dubs who have showcased the greater defensive improvement. It’s a bit of a coin toss but I’m picking Steph and his hot streak to squeak out the win.
