Golden State is one win away from the NBA Finals from being placed in thin air.
After taking care of business at home in Game 5, the Warriors have built a 3-2 series lead over the Celtics, who now have their backs against the wall after losing consecutive games for the first time this postseason.
Stephen Curry, who was the leading scorer in Games 1-4, stepped back in Game 5, making way for Andrew Wiggins to shine as he finished with 26 points and 13 rebounds while tasked with guarding Jayson Tatum. .

Tatum finished with 27 points on 10-for-20 shooting, but he worked for everything he got in Game 5.
“We’ve been in this situation before,” Tatum said after Boston’s Game 5 loss. “This isn’t over,” a statement that parallels what he said when the Celtics faced a 3-2 series deficit in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. In that round, Tatum put on a trademark performance to force a Game 7, but the Celtics face a different beast on a Warriors team that is one win away from its fourth title in eight seasons.
