Basketball: Sabali bets on the Celtics

Germany’s top female basketball player Sato Sabali believes in an NBA title for the Boston Celtics with Daniel Theis, despite her sympathies for the Golden State Warriors. “It would be great for Golden State to win, but I think the Celtics should win and they will win because they bring something new. They’re playing the hammer now,” NBA professional Sabali told dpa.

“I also think the Golden State experience could still be a problem for the Celtics. However, it would be really nice if Daniel Theis could hold another German Basketball Cup after Dirk Nowitzki.”

After three games in the NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics are up 2-1 and need two more wins to clinch their 18th title. This would put the Celtics ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers alone as record champions in the world’s best basketball league. After Dirk Nowitzki, Theis will be only the second German to win the NBA championship. The fourth game on Saturday morning (3:00 CEST).

Commenting on her sympathy for the Warriors, Sabali, who is in her third season in the WNBA Women’s Professional League, said, “They play well together and have no ego on the court, that’s really good. Curry has become a basketball icon, it would be a shame to lose the Finals, as he did. Draymond Green. “If Golden State loses, it will be a shame for them, but I still think the Celtics are better.” 30-year-old Theiss is also a “great guy.”
