On November 16, the Boston Celtics have proven that they are for real, beating the Golden State warriors at the TD Garden, 92-88. The victory convinced many that the Celtics are a championship-caliber team in the NBA this season. Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is among the believers. The two-time MVP is impressed with the Celtics and spoke about it following the game.

"It's very, very likely, right?" Stephen Curry said of a potential NBA Finals matchup with the Celtics, ESPN reported. He added that the C's are the best in the Eastern Conference right now, though they still need to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Curry also joked about the possibility of facing the Celtics for the title as he stated, "I hear the weather is great here in June."

If Curry thinks highly of the Celtics, his Splash Brother Klay Thompson has a different opinion. Thompson acknowledged that the Celtics are better than them as of the moment. However, for him, Boston still has "a lot of basketball" to play before it can reach the championship level of the Warriors.

The next meeting between the Warriors and the Celtics will be on January 27, 2018. That game is part of a three-game homestand for the Dubs.

No splash zone

The Splash Brothers went missing for the Golden State Warriors Thursday night. In the defeat to the Boston Celtics, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson failed to have a significant impact for the Dubs.

Curry just scored nine points in 3-of-14 shooting (2-of-9 from the three-point area). To make up for it, Curry tallied six rebounds, five assists, and four steals.

Meanwhile, Thompson had a better scoring night, but still, his performance was subpar from what he usually does for the Warriors. Thompson recorded 13 points as he shot 5-of-18 from the field, including 3-of-11 from long distance.

With Curry and Thompson struggling, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green tried to carry the Warriors in Boston. Durant exploded for 24 points to lead all scorers for the reigning champions. Green stuffed the stat sheet as he tallied 11 points, eight rebounds, five assists, a steal, and three rejections.

Road trip

The four-game road trip of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and the Golden State Warriors continue on November 18 when they head to the City of Brotherly Love for a rematch with the Philadelphia 76ers. Golden State triumphed in the first meeting, 135-114. Following this, the Dubs will have stops in Brooklyn (November 19) and Oklahoma City (November 22).
