After having the worst record in the NBA two seasons ago, Golden State Warriors moved to TD Garden on Thursday night, and defeated Boston Celtics 103-90 to win the 2022 NBA Finals.
Their Game 6 victory effectively secured the Warriors’ fourth championship in the last eight years.
The Warriors kept Boston at bay for the first two minutes of the second quarter as Golden State rained three points on them. By the time the Blitz passed, the Warriors had a 21-0 streak – the biggest streak in the finals in 50 years.
With this victory, the trio Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green won their fourth title together under Steve Kerr’s head coach, in addition to the 2015, 2017 and 2018 championships.
Curry, who wept in court after the last whistle, won the NBA Finals MVP honour for the first time in his career.
He had this to say: “This is what it’s all about, playing for a championship and what we’ve been through the last three years.
“Beginning of the season, nobody thought we’d be here except everybody on this court right now, and it’s amazing. Very surreal, though.
“You never take this for granted because you never know when you’re going to be back here. And to get back here and get it done, it means the world.
