This is the 13th time in Boston’s 22 title-series appearances that there has been a 2-2 tie headed into Game 5.

Being in a 2-2 finals tie is a bit of a rarity for the Warriors. This is only the second 2-2 tie in the franchise’s 12 finals appearances; the other was in 2015, when Golden State won Game 4 at Cleveland and then claimed the title in six games.
