Here are the details for Game 6 in the NBA Finals

Steph Struggles Stephen Curry In Monday's Game 5 victory, he failed to make a 3-pointer for his first postseason game. It is unlikely that this will happen again. We could even see Steph the superhuman in Game 6. In Game 6, the Western conference finals, he made three 3's. He responded by making six 3's during the quarter of his next game in the NBA Finals earlier this year.

X-Factor: Marcus Smart Not only is he leading the Celtics in scoring during the second half of this series, but he has also had an impact on the team in other ways that could help them in this Game 6. His assist-to-turnover ratio for wins is 3.8, which is more than twice his rate for losses (1.3) in the past month. Jayson Tatum And Jaylen Brown Smart's efforts are likely to garner the most attention. But it's unlikely that Finals will be returned to San Francisco without Smart giving them a strong effort.

9 p.m ET, TD Garden, Boston


Line: Celtics (-4)
Moneyline: Celtics (-170), Warriors (+145)
Total: 210 points
BPI Projected Total 222.4 Points
BPI Win% Celtics (68.8%)

Notable: In Boston's 13 previous outright wins, the unders have been 8-5.

The best bet is: Andrew Wiggins under 18.5 points: Andrew Wiggins performed admirably in Game 5. However, none of these stats will be enough to get you cash tickets for Game 6. Wiggins had 26 points and was the leader of Warriors shots (23) Stephen Curry Had an off night. Because Wiggins' scoring potential is less than you might think, it's difficult to predict his Game 6 usage. This series has lasted 192 minutes. He attempted only 13 free throws and missed 21-of-28 of his 3-point attempts. He scored 12 of 17 points from within the 3-point line in Game 5 and was able to cash in his tickets. It's not likely that this will happen again due to increased focus from what is arguably the best defense the NBA has. — Soppe

Marcus Smart is the best bet for 5.5 assists. Smart has 22 assists this postseason and only three turnovers. His usage rate remains high and being at home for assists is not a bad thing. Smart had fewer shots at home and received more assists than he did on the road during regular season. — Soppe

Best bet: More than 210 points This is the lowest total in the series. Based on Game 5, I believe this price is fair. On Monday, the Warriors and Celtics combined shot a terrible 20-of72 (37%) from 3-point range. Both Golden State's 22% shooting and Boston's 34% were the worst long-range shooting performances of either team in this series. The Celtics were fourth in postseason games with only 75 shots and missed 10 free throws. We still scored 198 points despite everything I have just said. A better shooting performance is possible, so I recommend a half-unit wager on the over. — Joe Fortenbaugh

Best bet is Stephen Curry at 28.5 points. Curry should rebound in big fashion in Game 6. Curry finished Game 5 with a score of 0-9 from the 3-point line. Curry has not been able to reach a triple sinc in any of the games. In 2013, Curry averaged 4.4 3s, and 46% 3-point percentage for the game following. This includes his 13 3s against New Orleans Pelicans (2016). Eric Moody

Best bet: Jayson Tatum over 3.5 turnovers. This postseason, Tatum has been the offensive leader for the Celtics. However, he's also averaged just 4.1 turnovers per match. Tatum has had 95 turnovers during the playoffs. LeBron James‘ 2018 mark. Moody

The best bet is: Klay Thompson Over 20.5 points, 3.5 3-pointers. While Thompson has been inconsistent during this series, he is unstoppable when he is locked in. Thompson has produced some Game 6 performances in his career, and another is expected. He averaged 20.7 PPG over 12 career Game 6's and shot 44.6% from the field, and 49.5% from beyond. Expect Thompson's trademark smile to shine a lot and the Warriors to play aggressively. Moody

Jayson Tatum is the best bet with 41.5 points + assists + rebound. Two consecutive losses by the Celtics in this postseason was their first. Tatum's large games after losing a game is one of those patterns that has not been broken. In Game 5, he scored 40.5 points and I believe he will produce more in Game 6. — Snellings

Marcus Smart over 15.5 Points is your best bet. This has been an ongoing battle and I will continue to do so. Smart dropped 20 points during Game 5, and has scored at minimum 18 points in five out of six of his previous games. Smart has an average of 16.4 PPG over his 14 last outings. — Snellings

Best bet: Andrew Wiggins over 7.5 rebounds. Wiggins, who has 29 boards in the series' last two games, has been the Warriors' primary rebounder. Golden State has been successful playing small ball with either Draymond Green Or Kevon Looney At the five, Wiggins is crashing the glass at four. Wiggins is displaying his incredible athleticism and is thriving in his role. Wiggins was the No. 1 pick in 2014 NBA Draft. I expect another strong performance on the boards in Game 6. — Snellings
