Warriors vs. Celtics live score, updates, highlights from Game 6 of NBA Finals

Can the Celtics stave off elimination one more time? That’s the big question heading into Thursday night’s Game 6.

Boston is up against the wall after it lost back-to-back games for the first time in the NBA Playoffs. The Celtics managed to defeat the Bucks and Heat in the previous two rounds despite facing elimination, but the Warriors present a different challenge.

Led by NBA Finals MVP candidate Stephen Curry, Golden State will be looking to win its fourth championship in the past eight seasons. The Warriors are unlikely to be shaken by the pressure of the moment, as their core players have been in this position before.

“I sense a great focus and confidence,” Kerr said before Game 6. “I think our guys are in a good place heading into tonight.”
