The Golden State Warriors are looking for win number 37 coming into this matchup. They’re right around making history with just a few wins to becoming the NBA’s best ever team. Not only they’re coming into this game off a huge victory in their latest game against the Utah Jazz on the road but are overcoming fatigue and intense pressure. They ended up besting the Utah Jazz in the back of a back to back set of games especially going into overtime. What will be difficult for the Warriors despite getting that record amount of wins, is keeping that form into the playoffs to defend their title. Golden State, on a 6 game winning streak right now will be big favorites for this game and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Steve Kerr resting some of his top players in the 4th quarter.
The Celtics head into this game having won 4 out of their last 6 games and on a mission to remain in playoffs. They’re hoping to finish anywhere between 3rd and 6th in the East, currently sitting in 4th. Jae Crowder is back in the lineup and back from injury. He’s one of the most undervalued players in the NBA. But what’s impressive of Boston is their teamwork. They rank surprisingly in the top 6 in the NBA in points scored, boards per game and assist per game.
