Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors Prediction: Will the Celtics Extend Their Series Lead in Game 4?

The Boston Celtics took care of the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, defeating the Warriors 116-100, in Game 3, at home, in the NBA Finals. The Celtics dominated the Warriors getting solid contributions from basically everyone who entered the game. The Warriors, on the other hand, just lack the depth that the Celtics have. Will that hurt the Warriors' chances in Game 4? Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Friday's Game 4 between the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors.

Boston Celtics vs. Golden State Warriors Game 4 Prediction

The Celtics took care of business in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. With that win, the Celtics are now leading the NBA Finals series, 2-1, and have another home game on Friday.

In Game 3, Boston dominated the glass and ended up with more points off turnovers than Golden State after limiting turnovers in the second half of the game.

Again, the rebounding battle was crucial, with Boston earning 47 rebounds and 16 more rebounds than Golden State in the game.

The Celtics shot 48.3% from the field while the Warriors shot 46.2% from the field. Both teams also shot just above 37% from deep in the game. However, Boston earned 11 more shot attempts and nine more foul shots to help extend their lead in the game.

The Celtics clearly have more depth and it showed on Wednesday. Boston got 27 points from Jaylen Brown, along with nine rebounds and five assists. Then the Celtics got 26 points from Jayson Tatum, along with nine assists and six rebounds.

On top of that, Marcus Smart added 24 points with seven rebounds and five assists. Oh, and Al Horford contributed with 11 points, eight rebounds, and six assists.

And no other player made a bigger impact in the game than Robert Williams III, who added 10 rebounds and eight points, along with many fantastic contests on the defensive end. That's one heck of a starting lineup.

On the other hand, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson paced the Warriors with 25 or more points each in Game 3. However, Curry was in foul trouble along with Draymond Green, who only had two points, four rebounds, and three assists in the game.

The Warriors will have to shoot lights out between Curry and Thompson if they're going to win Game 4 and the series. Andrew Wiggins has played well but shot 1-for-6 from three in Game 3. That didn't help. Plus only Jordan Poole and Otto Porter Jr. have impacted the Warriors off the bench in the Finals.

Therefore, I'm sticking with the Celtics. Boston is the deepest team in the NBA. Any night, a new player will step up and have a big game. They back each other up. Even with Curry and Thompson adding at least 25 points, the Warriors still lost by 16.

Take the Celtics -4.
