Celtics vs Warriors: Golden State Warriors Defeats Celtics
As the Golden State Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics 103-90 in Game 6 to win the NBA finals, Stephen Curry made 34 points and was awarded the Finals MVP.
The Golden State Warriors have won the NBA championship four times in the previous eight seasons after defeating the Boston Celtics 103-90 on Thursday night.
The Warriors won the franchise’s seventh overall championship as a result of Stephen Curry’s 34 points and MVP honors in the NBA Finals.
And this one came to an end after a journey unlike any other—five straight final appearances, a fall to the NBA’s basement, and now, just two seasons later, a return to glory.
Curry remarked after the Warriors took the championship trophy then jubilated on the court, “We found a way to simply get it done.”
Curry was so overcome with passion that he choked up as he tried to explain the Warriors’ latest championship victory. He also said,
“It’s part of a championship pedigree, our experience. We built this for 10-11 years. That means a lot when you get to this stage.”
Made 19 of their 45 attempts from beyond the arc. When Green hits a 3-pointer, the score rises to 20-1.
Boston’s 13-point defeat made it the first Finals without a game with a score under ten. Ray Allen, a former Celtic who was a part of Boston’s 2008 championship squad, sat courtside.
The Celtics started off well and quickly built a 14-2 lead thanks to the loud TD Garden crowd’s enthusiasm.
Golden State didn’t let the setback get to them and answered with a 35-8 run that lasted into the 2nd quarter and helped them increase their advantage to as much as 22 points.
As some Celtics supporters criticized the home team as they departed the field, the Warriors defeated the Celtics 27-17 for the session and led 54-39 going into the second half.
Boston made a comeback in the 3rd, but the Warriors restored their range from deep, sinking six threes.
