Preview by The Associated Press

The NBA Finals are tied at 2-2. If that sounds familiar to fans of the Boston Celtics, it should.

This is the 13th time in Boston’s 22 title-series appearances that there has been a 2-2 tie headed into Game 5. In the previous 12 such situations, Boston has won the title nine times — but failed to do so in 1985 and 2010, the last two times in which the Celtics were involved in a tied finals after four games.
Being in a 2-2 finals tie is a bit of a rarity for the Warriors. This is only the second 2-2 tie in the franchise’s 12 finals appearances; the other was in 2015, when Golden State won Game 4 at Cleveland and then claimed the title in six games.
THROUGH 4
Warriors guard Stephen Curry’s 137 points so far in this series are the most through four games of any NBA Finals since Kevin Durant also had 137 for the Warriors at this point in 2017.

Curry has 25 3-pointers so far, the most through four games of a finals. There have been seven instances of a player having at least 15 3s in the first four games of a finals — Curry is responsible for six of them, Danny Green (17 in 2013) the other. Curry had the previous most through four games, 22 in 2018.

He had 17 3s through four games in the finals in 2016 and 2017, and 15 3s through four games in the 2015 and 2019 finals.

Curry has the record for most 3s in a finals, making 32 in 2016. He’s on pace to break that regardless of whether this series goes six or seven games.

MOST 3s

With their first 3-pointer in Game 5 of the finals, the Celtics will set an NBA record. It’ll be their 307th of the playoffs, the most by a team in a single postseason.

They currently share that record of 306 with the 2016 Warriors.

This season’s Warriors are up to 280 3s in these playoffs. That’s already the fifth-most in a postseason, behind the 2016 Warriors, this year’s Celtics, the 2019 Toronto Raptors (286) and this year’s Dallas Mavericks (284).

The Warriors have a shot at setting the mark for most 3s in a full season, including playoffs. They’ve made 1,456 this season, 39 behind the record set by the 2018-19 Houston Rockets.

WINNING MARGINS

Every game in this series has been decided by at least 10 points. It’s the first time that the first four games of an NBA Finals have all been double-digit affairs since the Golden State-Cleveland series in 2016 — when the first six games were that way.
Before that, the most recent time there wasn’t a single-digit margin in the first four finals games was the San Antonio-Detroit series in 2005.

Golden State has seen nine of its last 11 games decided by at least 10 points. The two exceptions just missed; both were nine-point games.

LONG YEAR
Depending on whether this series goes six or seven games, Boston will play either 106 or 107 games this season.

It’ll be close to a record.

The 2007-08 Celtics played 108 games, which is the most by any team in an NBA season. The 2004-05 Detroit Pistons and 1994-95 New York Knicks played 107, tied for second-most.

Golden State will play either 104 or 105; if the finals go seven games, the 105-game season will be the second-longest in Warriors history. The 2015-16 Warriors played 106 games.

HOME-COURT ADVANTAGE

The Warriors reclaimed the home-court advantage in these NBA Finals by winning Game 4 in Boston.

Still unclear: if that matters anymore.

Regardless of what happens in the rest of the finals, this season will finish with teams winning just a smidge under 55% of the time at home.

It’ll be the second-lowest leaguewide home winning percentage in NBA history, somewhere between 54.7% and 54.9% depending on how the last two or three games of this series turn out.

It’s now a trend, too, even though arenas were filled with screaming fans again this season. The two lowest home winning percentages were set in the last two seasons: 54.65% in 2020-21 (when, in fairness, a lot of arenas were empty for much of the regular season because of the pandemic) and 55.1% in 2019-20 (not including games played in the bubble).

KLAY WATCH

Warriors guard Klay Thompson has 99 3-pointers in finals games, two shy of LeBron James for No. 2 on the all-time list.

The record, as would be expected, belongs to Stephen Curry. He’s up to 146 3s in finals games, and counting.

After Curry, James and Thompson, nobody else in NBA history has more than 59 — the totals reached by Danny Green and J.R. Smith.

MONEY MATTERS

The NBA’s playoff pool — the bonus money that postseason teams share — was $17.3 million this season. About half of that will be going to the Celtics and Warriors, to split among players and staff however they choose.

If the Celtics win the finals, they’ll receive a total of $4,490,613 from the playoff pool. If they lose the series, they get $3,455,946.

If the Warriors win the title, they get $4,403,194. If they lose in the finals, they’ll receive $3,368,527.

The payouts are slightly more for the Celtics because one of the factors in determining how much a team receives from the pool is based on seeding. The Celtics get $349,660 for being a No. 2 seed. The Warriors get $262,241 for being a No. 3 seed.

Both teams got $258,449 for being in the first round, $307,520 for making the conference semifinals and $508,174 for making the conference finals.

The finals payouts are $3,066,810 to the winning team, $2,032,143 to the losing team.

Among non-finals teams, Miami ($1,511,221) got the biggest payout, followed by Phoenix ($1,502,472).

The minimum payout for playoff teams this season was $258,449.

Warriors vs. Celtics NBA Finals: Game 5 prediction, picks, TV channel, live stream, how to watch online

Through the first four games of the 2022 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics have alternated wins. The Celtics opened the series with a win, and then the Warriors responded in Game 2. Boston then claimed victory in Game 3 only for Golden State to bounce back in Game 4. Now, both teams will be looking to claw ahead in a pivotal Game 5, which is set for Monday night in San Francisco.

Game 5 in a best-of-seven series is statistically important. Teams that win Game 5 when the series is tied at 2-2 go on to win that series over 80 percent of the time. This makes sense, as whichever team wins the fifth game will have two more chances to get one win, while the losing time will sit just a single loss away from elimination. With that said, here’s everything you need to know about Game 5 between Boston and Golden State.

Storylines

Warriors: Steph Curry put on an absolute show in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. With the Warriors down 2-1 to the Boston Celtics, Curry put the team and his back and carried them to a 107-97 win. During his 40 minutes of action, Curry scored 43 points, snagged 10 rebounds and dropped four assists. He hit seven of his 14 attempts from long range and shot 53 percent from the floor overall. However, as good as Curry was, he’s going to need more help moving forward if the Warriors are going to win the series. Outside of Andrew Wiggins — who has been Golden State’s second-best player in the series — basically everyone else on the roster needs to step up, especially key contributors Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole. Green has had arguably the worst playoff series of his career thus far, while Poole and Thompson have been inconsistent when it comes to providing the ancillary scoring around Curry. Look for the Warriors to try to get those guys going in Game 5.

Celtics: Speaking of Curry, the Celtics are going to have to find a way to limit his production on the offensive end for the remainder of the series. Easier said than done, I know, but there are some things that Boston could try, namely trapping Curry to get the ball out of his hands. Thus far, the Celtics have largely relied on switching Curry pick-and-rolls, and though they’re adept at switching, all Curry needs is a sliver of space to get his shot off and make the defense pay, and that’s exactly what he’s done. By trapping, you force the ball out of Curry’s hands and in turn force the other players on Golden State to beat you. Given the way Curry’s teammates have performed in the series so far, that’s a gamble I’d be willing to take.

Prediction, pick

This series has been pretty tough to predict, and really any outcome for Game 5 wouldn’t surprise me. But with that said, the Celtics have been stellar coming off of a loss this postseason, as they haven’t loss two straight games all playoffs. Jayson Tatum, specifically, has stepped his game up following Boston losses, and he can be expected to do the same thing in Game 5. It’s tough to bet against Curry, given how well he has been playing in the series, but the help around him has proven tough to rely on given the inconsistency. Pick: Celtics +3.5
