ANALYSIS

Golden State Warriors vs. Boston Celtics Same Game Parlay: Going Back to Steph Curry in Game 2

Stephen Curry enjoyed a blazing hot start in Game 1 of the 2022 NBA Finals. The two-time MVP dropped 21 points, three rebounds, and two assists, hitting six three-pointers. I feel pretty confident that the Boston Celtics won't allow him to get as many clean looks from three as he did in Game 1 moving forward.

Golden State's superstar will probably see a ton of attention in the form of double-teams and hard hedges as he operates the high pick-and-roll in Game 2. This creates an awesome opportunity for Steph to facilitate at an elite level at the start of the game, as he's done all postseason. And, we can take advantage of the incredible value that comes with this, too. Let's dive into my prediction, player prop, and the odds for Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Warriors vs Celtics.

Golden State Warriors vs. Boston Celtics Game 2 Prediction

It only took Curry three minutes and 50 seconds to rack up a pair of first-quarter assists. And, he extended his streak of playoff games with 4+ assists to 24 in a row. Golden State's offense will obviously revolve around Steph, which means the Celtics will undoubtedly make him the focal point of their gameplan from the opening tip. I have no issue riding these two legs until the wheels fall off.

Number 30 logged 38 minutes of action on Thursday and hinted at potentially seeing even more playing time moving forward. In other words, Curry will play the full 12 minutes in the opening frame yet again, barring serious foul trouble. This is perfect for what we need from Steph, as he's posted 2+ Q1 Assists in 25 of 34 games when seeing 10+ Q1 minutes this season.

Over his last 12 games, he has 2+ Q1 Assists in 11 of them. Curry's averaging 2.5 Q1 AST during this stretch and 2.7 since the Western Conference Finals. I feel great about his chances to get his teammates going early on, which means he'll only need a maximum of 2 more dimes in the rest of the game.

The three-time NBA champion has 4+ assists in 17/17 playoff games and 51/56 games when seeing 34+ minutes this season. I expect him to see 40 minutes Sunday evening, so four dimes is hardly asking much of one of the greatest offensive players we've ever seen. I feel terrific banking on Curry's prolific playmaking, and you should too.
