Quick Bit: After Game 5, the Warriors and Celtics will receive an extra day of rest to accommodate cross-country travel.

Full Story:

After playing Game 5 in The Bay on Monday, the Warriors and Celtics are set to travel back across the country to Boston for Game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals.

The Warriors are now one win away from hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy at TD Garden after Andrew Wiggins’ breakout Game 5 performance, going for 26 points and 13 rebounds.

With the NBA switching to a 2-2-1-1-1 format in the NBA Finals, there is added time in between Finals games that require travel. That said, there will be an added day of rest to accommodate the cross-country travel both teams have ahead of them.
