San Francisco – Golden State Warriors basketball players will play in the NBA semifinals. In the sixth quarter-final, they defeated Memphis 110: 96 at home and won the entire series 4: 2 in matches. On the other hand, the duel between the defending champions from Milwaukee and Boston will decide the seventh match, as the Celtics won on the opponent’s field 108: 95 also thanks to Jayson Tatum’s 46 points.

The Golden State players quickly recovered from the memphacle Memphis had given them in the last game, when they led by as much as 55 points. At home, they showed the great strength of their basic five and completely defeated their opponents in the rebound.

The Grizzlies are the best jumping team in the basic part and the second best in the playoffs, but this time the Warriors jumped them 70:44 and won 25 rebounds in the attack. The San Antonio Spurs last had more rebounds in the playoffs in 1983.

Kevon Looney, who won 22 rebounds and 11 in the attack, has a lot to do with it. In the attack, Klay Thompson scored eight threes and 30 points, Steph Curry added six threes and 29 points.

Memphis resisted and led 89:87 another six and a half minutes before the end. But then Andre Wiggins scored a very important five points, Curry added two threes, and when Thompson raised to 13 points three minutes before the end after Looney jumped in the attack twice, the winner was decided.

Boston led most of the match over Milwaukee, but in the fourth quarter, its 18-point lead was reduced to just four points and the Bucks were back in the game eight minutes before the end.

But then Tatum took the match into his own hands. He took care of 16 of Boston’s 26 points in the final and scored a total of 46 points for the Celtics. “I just wanted to put everything into it. Then I didn’t want to regret that we dropped out. We had to win and I tried to arrange it,” Tatum said.

“He was incredible,” said opponent Janis Adetokunbo, who himself had a great match with 44 points and 20 rebounds, but even that was not enough for Milwaukee. Tatum also had great support from Jaylen Brown with 22 points and Marcus Smart with 21 points. Together they scored 89 out of 108 team points.

“No one in this series can win two games in a row, so now it’s up to us to pick it up and advance in the seventh match. It will be the match that everyone is waiting for. If you lose, you have after the season, if you win, you will advance. it’s a drama, “said Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer.
