This is the Celtics vs. Warriors game six recap. The Celtics couldn’t take advantage of their homecourt as they fell to the Warriors 103-90. Steph Curry caught fire, like he normally does, and he finished with a 34 piece. Due to his stellar offensive play, the Warriors were able to keep a comfortable lead throughout the entire contest. This article will go over the Celtics vs. Warriors game six recap.
Jayson Tatum Performance
Tatum had a very mediocre outing this time around. He finished with just 13 points, three rebounds, seven assists, three steals, one block, and five turnovers on 6/18 from the field and 1/4 from three. It’s an extremely bitter ending to what was such a good regular season for this club, but they won’t let this loss get the best of them. Hopefully Tatum learns from this finals run and can better his struggles. After this playoff run, Tatum is now the all-time leader in turnovers for the playoffs, which isn’t necessarily a good thing. Good thing this off-season is here so he can work on his ball-handling.
Jaylen Brown Performance
This guy did everything in his power to will his team a victory, but he came up short. He finished with a team-high 34 points, seven boards, three dimes, one steal, and five turnovers on 12/23 from the field, 5/11 from three and 5/6 from the line. The turnovers harmed the team, but he came alive during the fourth frame. He looked to hurt his ankle, but he got right back up and hit a three to pull the game within 10. If he had a little more help from his other big-three teammates (Tatum and Marcus Smart), this game could’ve had a better outcome. Still, Brown is rising superstar in this league. It won’t be long until we see this guy on an All-NBA team, because the talent is clearly there.
Robert Williams Performance
Williams would’ve won Defensive Player of the Year if he had played in more games. This game was no different as he put up five more swats to go along with ten points, seven boards, two assists, and two turnovers. The team doctors said that he was almost completely healthy, and he even claims that his bounce is back, which was pretty evident in this game. He got to display his dominant defensive presence once again since he was previously dealing with a nagging hamstring injury. The off-seasons finally here, so now the Time Lord can have some time to fully heal. Next season is going to be his breakout season, so watch out.
Al Horford Performance
Horford was on a heater this game and was another main reason as to why they kept this game close. He finished with 19 points, 14 boards, two dimes, two swipes, one block, and three turnovers on 6/8 from the field, 4.5 from the three point line and 3/3 from the line. At one point in the second half, he hit 4 straight threes (one didn’t count unfortunately). He did not want to go home, but Curry had other plans. Horford is 36 years young, but he had such a magical finals run. Hopefully he can get there at least one more time before he retires.
