Boston Celtics @ Golden State Warriors (-4, 215.5)
Game 2: Celtics lead 1-0
The talking point from Game 1 on Thursday for most is that the Celtics’ hot shooting is not likely to sustain itself as head into Game 2 tonight, and I would agree with that sentiment. Boston tied a Finals record with nine made 3-point attempts in the fourth quarter while also becoming the first team in NBA history to win a Finals game by double-digits after trailing by double digits entering the fourth quarter. Record-setting performances tend not to repeat themselves the next game. However, I believe that if your focus is on the Celtics’ shooting on Thursday and that is the basis of your handicap for this game tonight you are off to a bad start.
