The Celtics are now trailing 2-3 in the NBA Finals after losing Game 5 against the Warriors (104-94). Game 6 will be played in Boston and will be a do-or-die game for the hosts.
Jayson Tatum was asked about his team’s confidence going into Game 6. While not making bold claims, he emphasized that it is one game that the Celtics have to win and that they have been in this situation before.
“I said it before, we better be confident, right?” the 24-year-old forward said. “We ain’t got to win two in one day. We just gotta win one game on Thursday. And we’ve been in this situation before. So, it’s not over. But you gotta win on Thursday and that’s all we gotta worry about right now.”
