The Golden State Warriors grab the NBA Finals lead heading into game six, and need just one more win to clinch glory. This would be the Warriors' seventh franchise championship and their fourth in the last eight years. All they have to do is win one more game against the young and hungry Celtics, and the trophy is theirs. If you think the Warriors can pull it off, be sure to bet on them through any of these New Jersey Online Casinos.

The Warriors managed to win game five of the series despite a lackluster performance from their star point guard, Steph Curry. Curry managed to still score 16 points, but only made 7 of his 22 shots–and went 0 for 9 from behind the arc. Prior to this game, Curry sank a three in each of his last 233 games. Before last night, the last time Curry failed to sink a three was on November 8th, 2018, in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Curry will look to reset his streak in game six which takes place on Thursday, June 16th, at 9:00 PM EST.

So if Curry wasn’t the reason they won, you may find yourself asking–who was? Well, Warriors fans can thank Andrew Wiggins for that. Wiggins scored a team-high 26 points on the game, grabbing 13 rebounds while he was at it. Klay Thompson also put in a great effort, scoring 21 points (15 coming from behind the arc).

The Celtics are down to their final out, and will need all-time performances from Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown if they want to force a game seven. Be sure to check out any of these DraftKings Promos before game six if you are planning on placing any bets.
