Boston Celtics vs. Golden State Warriors live stream: where to watch

The Boston Celtics will travel to San Francisco to take on the Golden State Warriors in an NBA Finals rematch. The last time these two teams played, the Warriors hoisted the Larry O’Brien trophy in Boston this past June as Golden State defeated Boston 4-2 in the series to win the NBA Championship. Steph Curry won Finals MVP for the first time in his career, averaging 31.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists in the series.

As of now, the Celtics are the better basketball team as they sit atop the NBA as the highest-scoring offense in the league, with an impressive average of 120.8 points per game. On the other hand, the Warriors have stumbled out of the gate with a 13-13 record. When healthy, the starting lineup might be the best in the league, but the bench is nonexistent, as the Warriors own the league’s second-worst net rating of -5.2
