The NBA Finals could end Thursday if the Golden State Warriors are able to pick up another win over the Celtics at TD Garden in Boston.
Golden State has struggled to close streaks on the road this postseason. According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Warriors are 0-3 this season if they have a chance to end a series outside the Chase Center. The Celtics have had the opposite experience, with a 3-0 record in eliminations this postseason.
However, history favors teams leading 3-2 in Game 6. These teams have won the series 81% of the time (39 times out of 48). The last team to lose a 3-2 lead was the Warriors against the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016. If the Warriors win, it would be their fourth championship in eight seasons, the first since the Chicago Bulls (1991). until ’98).
TD Garden fans brought the energy for Games 3 and 4, so expect things to get even louder for a win-or-go home Game 6.
Here are some of the best scenes from Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Klay Thompson has made a name for himself in the Game 6 playoffs throughout his career. Teammate Jordan Poole showed support for another standout performance (hopefully) by rocking a 2011 NBA draft shirt with Thompson.
I have to represent the family.
