It is down to this.

Boston and Golden State set themselves up for a mother-watering NBA Finals series when game one gets underway on Friday morning. 

Having won their way through to the all-deciding best-of-seven bout, Boston aims to cause an early boil-over at Chase Center after toppling Miami to take out the Eastern Conference for the 32nd time. 

The Celtics survived a late scare in game seven and had to do it the hard way as it scraped through into the NBA Finals, while Golden State sat back and watched with its feet up, having cruised its way past Dallas with a 4-1 series win to take out the West.

There is star power embedded within both rosters.

The Splash Brothers have returned to their best with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson rewinding the clock, but they have not been alone.

Jordan Poole has accompanied the deadly shooting duo with 18.4 points per game and 4.5 assists through the playoffs this season. 

Add in the experience and defensive strength of Draymond Green, and Boston will have a tough job. 

The Celtics will rely on Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to get them rolling on the scoring front. 

In his fifth season at the top level, Tatum has launched home 27 points per game, 5.9 assists and 6.7 rebounds per playoff match. 

He is the barometer for Boston; the Celtics start to hum when he gets going. 

It will be a case of mitigating the damage when that fateful and inevitable lull in concentration occurs in-game. 

If you give its shot generators time and space on the floor, Golden State is a viciously efficient team on offence. 

With a few days extra break and Boston coming off a gruelling seven-game series against Miami, Golden State looks well placed to win game one. 

Suggested Bets:
Golden State Warriors -3.5 at $1.90

total points scored over 212.5

Looking at it plain and simply from an average point of view, this game is poised to go over 212.5.

Golden State Warriors average 114.5 points per game in the postseason, while Boston averaged 107.1 points. 

Maths would suggest this game gets to around the 220-point range. 

It is a case of the best offensive team meeting the best defensive team. 

Boston will want to get its offence going and might lack a bit on the defensive end given their tough series against Miami is likely to leave it battle weary for game one.  

Suggested Bets: Total points over 212.5

same game multi

A Golden State Warriors same game multi looks a must in game one. 

The home-court advantage, extra break, and scoring options make for a nice five-legger. 

Warriors at the spread, total points over 212.5, and we have to get Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson involved in this one. 

They are both big-time players and live for this type of scenario with a championship on the line. 

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Golden State Warriors -3.5
Leg 2: Total points scored over 212.5
Leg 3: S. Curry 3+ three-pointers
Leg 4: K. Thompson over 18.5 points 
Leg 5: D. Green over 3.5 assists
Combined odds = $6.50
