The reason why Anthony Edwards thinks Celtics will beat Warriors in NBA Finals

Warriors, Celtics, Timberwolves, Anthony Edwards

Minnesota Timberwolves star and “Hustle” actor Anthony Edwards thinks the Boston Celtics will win the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, and for good reason.

While Edwards is aware of what the Warriors are capable, he doesn’t think they have what it takes to match up the talent that the Celtics possess. He also noted that the presence of Al Horford should make things difficult for Golden State, especially since the San Francisco franchise lacks a true big man.

“I mean I love Golden State. I think they’re gonna win, but the Celtics got so much–like they got Jaylen Brown, they got Jayson Tatum, they got Al Horf. If Al Horford plays how he’s been playing, I don’t think the Warriors got a chance,” Edwards shared in an interview with Collider, recorded before the NBA Finals started.

Anthony Edwards is spot-on with his comment. While the series is now tied at 2-2, it is worth noting how the Celtics won Games 1 and 3 behind Al Horford and Jaylen Brown. Jayson Tatum has been inconsistent, but imagine what they can achieve when the star forward starts finding his rhythm.

Of course the Warriors are no easy opponents. Their championship experience makes them really hard to beat. But if there is one thing the Celtics have proven, it’s the fact that they have what it takes to win it all no matter who their opponents are.
