That is it. Game is over. Golden State is up 15 with 1:30 left and Boston has had no chance to slow the Warriors.
Masterful job by Steph Curry in every way. Wiggins was sensational. Draymond found his rhythm and put on a defensive masterclass.
That is 4 titles now. Amazing. – 11:24 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
The Celtics had a remarkable season. Still hard to believe they got this far after how ugly things looked as late as mid-January.
But, in the end, the Warriors had their number offensively in this series. And Stephen Curry has dominated this series. – 11:24 PM

Steph Curry didn’t need tonight. He’s a transcendent player & his 3-point record this season was already a massive maraschino on a resplendent resume (as he continued to make a half-decade old tweet of mine a “Dewey Defeats Truman”level bad call). He’s raised his own bar. Salute. – 11:23 PM

Warriors come out of the timeout with the same lineup: Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, Payton and Green – 11:20 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
This qualifies as one of Draymond Green’s all-timers, considering matchup/moment. Sitting at 12 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks. Everywhere defensively. Three timely jumpers. Controlling the game late. Just had Kerr take timeout to get Curry a breather. – 11:18 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
I liked the late-double after the switch when Horford was on Curry, but Wiggins made the 3 when Boston tried it, and Celtics haven’t gone back to it. – 11:17 PM

Stephen Curry is shooting 40% from beyond the arc creating his own shot out of pick and rolls this season. – 10:00 PM

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Time Lord saving the Celtics again, even if Curry has blown by him a few times tonight. But he’s been pressuring the rim on defense to force some shots to just fall out and the Celtics are trying to find him in the dunker spot – 9:53 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Robert Williams has made a couple of insane plays here in the last minute or two as Boston is trying to drag itself back into this game. He just absolutely erased a Stephen Curry layup. – 9:52 PM

Big stretch here for the Celtics with Curry on the bench to start the second. – 9:38 PM

Draymond Green 3-pointer. Stephen Curry 3-pointer. Jordan Poole 3-pointer.
Warriors close the first on an 11-0 run to go up 27-22.
At one point, they trailed the Celtics by 12. – 9:36 PM

Draymond corner 3.
Curry transition 3.
Poole banked 3. – 9:35 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Just like I wrote about in Game 4 … Curry drive and kick for his OWN corner 3 when Payton hands the ball back to him. Nobody else does this.…9:35 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
That was Draymond Green’s first made 3 of the series. He’d missed his first 12. It was part of an 11-0 Warriors surge to close the first quarter and jump up five. Draymond 3, Curry 3, Poole 3 in final 80 seconds of quarter. – 9:35 PM

Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Wow, #Warriors storm back after falling behind 12, lead #Celtics 27-22 after 1Q. Tatum 7, Brown 7; Curry 5, Thompson 5, Green 5, Poole 5. – 9:35 PM

CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Warriors end the first quarter with three straight triples from Green, Curry and Poole. They lead 27-22 entering the second quarter.
TD Garden is silent. – 9:34 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Of couse, it’s a transition three that breaks Curry’s slump – 9:33 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Curry came up smiling after that one because he knows he pulled a Smart on Smart. – 9:25 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Curry just Marcus Smarted Marcus Smart lol – 9:25 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
First one was a legit foul on Curry. That second one should have been a play on. – 9:18 PM

Klay Thompson and Steph Curry both knocked Marcus Smart over with offensive fouls in a matter of 5 seconds….. – 9:17 PM

A few Stephen Curry notes as we prepare to tip off Game 6:
– He averages 4.4 3-pointers on 46% shooting in the next game after not making a three (which he did Game 5)
– He averages 32 points per game in title-clinching wins — good for second all-time.

With a win tonight (or Game 7), Steph Curry/Klay Thompson/Draymond Green will pass Larry Bird/Kevin McHale/Robert Parish for 2nd-most playoff games won by an All-@NBA trio (both trios currently have 92 wins). #1 such trio: Tim Duncan/Tony Parker/Manu Ginobili (126 playoff wins!). – 8:03 PM

Henry Abbott @TrueHoop
In a fun convo on @OddCoupleFSR with
@chris_broussard and @RobParkerFS1 we talked about Stephen Curry’s place on the all-time list.
Chris is considering adding Steph to his top 10. I told him Steph’s already in my top three!
From 2020, here’s why:…8:03 PM

Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
Steph Curry might win a title with Andrew Wiggins as the 2nd-beat player.
Who is the worst 2nd-best player on a championship team?
2011 Jason Terry
1994 Robert Horry
Who else?
That’s not a slight on Wiggins as much as it’s a testament to Steph’s ability to elevate everyone. – 7:39 PM

Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
If Steph Curry hits 7 3s tonight he’ll tie the record for most 3s made in an NBA Finals. He had 25 in first 4 games before zero in Game 5. Current record holder: Steph Curry (in 2016). He’s currently tied for 3rd-most, with 2015 Steph. Steph and Klay Thompson make up 8 of top 10. – 6:23 PM

Steph Curry on the T-shirts and signs: I’m the petty king so I know all about everything. I use it as entertainment and just have fun with it…the more you realize the
