NBA Finals Game 5: Steph Curry scoring, Draymond Green confidence among 5 biggest keys to Warriors vs. Celtics

The Golden State Warriors did what they’ve done for 27 consecutive playoff series now.

They won a road game. It was a significant win as now the Warriors are heading back to San Francisco tied 2-2 in the NBA Finals, rather than being down 1-3 against the best defensive team in the league. Friday’s 107-97 win at the TD Garden ensured we will get a Game 6 in this series, and it also added to the legacy of Steph Curry, whose 43 points and 10 rebounds (almost) single-handedly carried the Warriors to the win.

Curry got some help from Andrew Wiggins who chipped in with 17 points and 16 rebounds, but Draymond Green was once again a non-factor offensively for the Warriors, finishing with two points, nine rebounds and eight assists. For the Celtics, their issues were the same that have plagued them already in the playoffs — hello, turnovers. What are going to be some of the key things to watch for this Game 5 at the Chase Center? We’ve got you covered right here.
