Game 5 has had a direct effect on how the rest of the series has gone in the past, with the winner of Game 5 winning the series 73.3 percent of the time when the series was at a 2-2 tie.
The game was extremely competitive throughout three quarters, but Warriors guard Jordan Poole may have made a huge impact in swinging the game in the Warriors’ direction.

I have watched Jordan Poole shoot like 20 shots in my whole life and at least 12 of them have been 40-footers that he’s drilled

Poole may have mastered the art of the deep three at the buzzer, as he made a similarly impressive shot at the end of the third quarter in Game 2.

The shot on Monday was more impressive because of the situation of the game at hand. The Warriors started the game hot, but Boston came out and outscored the Celtics by 11 in the third quarter.
His shot at the end got the crowd off their feet and gave the Warriors some much-needed momentum heading into a crucial fourth quarter.
