Warriors vs. Celtics Prediction
The Celtics will look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead against the Warriors when the NBA Finals continues at 9:00 p.m. ET on Friday night. With the way Golden State struggling to keep pace with the physical Celtics in Game 3 on Thursday, are the Warriors a poor bet as underdogs again tonight?
523 Golden State Warriors (+4) at 524 Boston Celtics (-4); o/u 214

Venue: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Stephen Curry (left foot soreness) confirmed that he will play in Game 4. “I’m going to play. That’s all I know right now,” Curry said. Coach Steve Kerr spoke about 30 minutes before Curry and said the expectation was that Curry would play, and we also heard positive reports from Shams Charania and Chris Haynes on his health on Thursday morning. Curry is officially listed as probable on the injury report, but all signs point towards his being available for Game 4.
Boston Celtics DFS Notes
Robert Williams (left knee) said during his press conference on Thursday that he was “feeling good” after logging 25 minutes in Wednesday’s Game 3 win over the Warriors. For most players, this would not be a big deal, but that isn’t the case for the Time Lord. Due to the meniscus surgery that he underwent late in the regular season, Williams’ minutes have been closely monitored by the Celtics. While he has been able to play every other day during the postseason (see Games 4-7 of the Eastern Conference Finals), Williams’ effectiveness has waned. While he’s likely to once again appear on the injury report ahead of Game 4 Friday night, DFS players should expect to see Williams take on a similar workload (approximately 25 minutes).
