It was a rollercoaster to get there, but the Warriors are one win away from an NBA Championship after taking a 3-2 series lead with Monday’s 104-94 win at Chase Center. The Warriors jumped out to a 16-point lead in the first quarter but the Celtics surged ahead with a third quarter blitz. The Dubs would answer with a 10-0 spurt to open the fourth quarter and maintained their advantage from there. Andrew Wiggins punctuated his 26-point night with an emphatic dunk with just over two minutes left in the fourth quarter, Klay Thompson followed with a game-clinching 3-pointer and the Warriors improved to 11-1 at home this postseason. With the win, the Warriors became the first team to win consecutive games in the series, also marking the first time the Celtics have lost consecutive games this postseason. Armed with a 3-2 series lead, the Warriors will look to close out the series and win their fourth NBA title in the last eight seasons when they visit the Celtics for Game 6 on Thursday (6 p.m. PDT, ABC).
