Why the Celtics can cover

Boston’s defense remains uber-elite. The Celtics led the league in defensive efficiency during the regular season, and Boston is allowing only 105.7 points per 100 possessions in the 2022 NBA playoffs. Boston had six blocked shots and seven steals in Game 1, and the Celtics held the Warriors to only 26 points in the paint in the opener. Opponents are shooting only 43.3 percent from the field and 32.4 percent from three-point range against Boston in the postseason, and the Celtics are allowing only 20.2 assists per contest.

The Celtics also led the league in field goal percentage allowed (43.4 percent), three-point percentage allowed (33.9 percent), two-point percentage allowed (49.7 percent), and assists allowed (21.6 per game) during the 82-game regular season marathon. Boston also created 13.8 turnovers per game in 2021-22, with Golden State having the second-worst offensive turnover rate (15.0 percent) in the league this season. 

Why the Warriors can cover

Golden State’s offense is the best in the 2022 NBA Playoffs, scoring 1.16 points per possession and leading the way in assist rate and assists per game. There were flashes of that dominance in Game 1, including 19 three-pointers and 26 second-chance points on the offensive glass. However, the Warriors are also elite on defense. Golden State is securing almost 74 percent of available defensive rebounds in the postseason, with opponents shooting only 44.5 percent from the field against the Warriors.

In the regular season, the Warriors finished with the No. 2 defensive rating in the NBA, yielding fewer than 1.07 points per possession over 82 games. Opponents shot only 43.8 percent from the floor and 50.9 percent inside the arc against Golden State this season, with the Warriors holding the opposition to 22.9 assists per game. Boston has battled turnover issues in the past, and Golden State’s offense is superior to Boston’s as a whole.
