Deep breath, hoop fans. Thursday could very well be the last game action of the season, as the Golden State Warriors look to clinch the NBA Championship in Game 6 of their series with the Boston Celtics.
We’re about to find out just how resilient these C’s are: they’ve dropped back-to-back games for the first time in the playoffs, and they haven’t lost three straight games since a stretch at Christmas.
It’s probably why oddsmakers have installed Boston as 4-point favorites in this do-or-die affair, the fourth time they’ve faced elimination in the postseason.
Warriors vs Celtics Odds Game 6
|Golden State Warriors||+4 (-110)||O 210 (-112)||+142|
|Boston Celtics||-4 (-110)||U 210 (-108)||-168|
Odds as of June 15th at FanDuel
There’s precious little time in this season to get your bets in, so let’s go out with a bang and a win, checking all the boxes in an NBA Finals Game 6 same-game parlay (SGP).
All the key players are getting their shoulder tapped for this 5-leg SGP, with plenty of juice. Hit all of these, and there’s a sweet payoff for just a little scratch.
We’ll start with the heaviest hitter in Finals MVP favorite Steph Curry, who did something we haven’t seen him do since 2018: not make a single three-pointer in a game.

Star Props to Consider
Right when the clock hit zero in Game 5, bettors had to see the prop lines for Curry in Game 6.
He had just come off his worst three-point shooting game in four years, failing to make a single splash, missing all nine attempts, part of a forgettable 7-for-22 night with just 16 points. His NBA-record string of 233 games and 133 games went up in bricks, a performance we hadn’t seen since Kevin Durant was his teammate, LeBron James was in stint two in Cleveland, and Kawhi Leonard was just getting familiar with his new Toronto Raptors teammates.

Can’t see him not going supernova Thursday. Consider that the blip on his march to FMVP, a guy who had hit at least five money balls in every game this series prior to Game 5.
Will we see the best of Jayson Tatum? The Celtics’ star has labored under the burden of expectations in this series — as well as a stout Warriors’ defense — and he hasn’t cracked the 30-point plateau once in the Finals, while only breaking Game 6’s total once.

The only other time he’s faced a Game 6 elimination was in the East semis against the Bucks, and he dropped 46. Expect him to finally find his groove.
Taking Overs for Wiggins, Brown and Smart
The last two Andrew Wiggins performances have reminded everyone the talent he’s always had since being drafted first overall by the Timberwolves in 2014.
After a brilliant 26-point, 13-rebound bail out of Curry in Game 6, Wiggins is clearly the Dubs’ second-best player in the Finals, and it’s not really close. He’s hovered around this point total all playoffs, hitting over 17.5 points in six of his last 10 outings.

Jaylen Brown has been equal parts brilliant and brutal in the Finals. While his scoring streaks and turnovers are volatile, he’s been consistently working the boards. Brown has had at least six rebounds in 12 of the last 13 games, crossing his 6.5 total eight times over that stretch. He should be in the mix again.
And Marcus Smart hasn’t topped 5.5 assists at any point in the Finals, but his play hasn’t been under this much scrutiny since the block-turnover combo against the Bucks late in a Game 5 loss.

Smart did pot 20 points last time out, but he committed four turnovers, was on the wrong end of a Jordan Poole flop, and his failed flop resulted in a back-breaking Klay Thompson three-pointer.
I just see him putting together a complete performance in Game 6.
