The Warriors look to even out their record for this five-game road trip after a 127-118 win against the Washington Wizards on Monday moved them to 2-1. The Celtics, on the other hand, extended their winning streak to seven games after beating the Charlotte Hornets on Monday 130-118.
The Warriors and Celtics most recently played each other this season on Dec. 10, 2022 in San Francisco. Golden State beat them in that one 123-107. Tonight, however, the two teams play in Boston — a place where the home crowd has been anxiously waiting for a rematch with the Dubs since their championship defeat last June.
Although the Celtics hold the best record in the NBA at 33-12, Golden State usually elevates their game during big matchups such as this one. A motivated Warriors team is a dangerous team. Stephen Curry already proved that last year on the night he quieted a hostile TD Garden crowd with a dazzling 43-point display in Game 6 of the 2021-22 NBA Finals. Meanwhile, forward Draymond Green is coming off one of his best performances of the season after a pair of fans heckled him during the Wizards game, so expect him to come out ready for his highly anticipated return to Boston.
It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
