The Golden State Warriors found the key ingredient for their recipe to take down the Boston Celtics on the road in Game 4 on Friday night. Star point guard Steph Curry took over the game, pouring in 43 points on a 14 of 26 shooting performance, knocking down 7 of 14 from 3-point range. He bounced back from a poor shooting night in Game 3, helping Golden State extend its NBA record with at least one road win in 27 consecutive playoff series since 2013.
Curry’s point total has been bumped up several points for Game 5 at 9 p.m. ET on Monday night, with an over-under of 31.5 in the latest NBA player prop odds at Caesars Sportsbook. His over-under for made 3-pointers has been set at 5.5.

Top NBA player prop bets for Celtics vs. Warriors
After simulating Game 5 of Warriors vs. Celtics 10,000 times, the model projects Golden State shooting guard Klay Thompson to go under 19.5 points at -125 odds. Thompson has not been the same player this postseason that Warriors fans are accustomed to, as he continues to struggle with his shot. He took 17 shots in Game 4, but it still was not enough to get over this point total.
He has now gone under 19.5 points in seven of his last nine games, including his 18-point performance on Friday night. The offense is clearly in Curry’s hands at this point, so Thompson is unlikely to get over this total in Game 5. SportsLine’s model agrees, projecting the veteran shooting guard to score an average of 18.8 points in the latest simulations.
