Stephen Curry put on another standout performance as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics to become champions in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
Curry bounced back from a disappointing Game 5 display – an outlier in a magnificent streak for the Warriors superstar – to lead his team to a 103-90 win at Boston’s TD Garden, sealing a fourth title in eight years for the franchise. .
The dynastic run was led by Curry, fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson and defensive center Draymond Green. This trio was again at the center of this title victory, with Andrew Wiggins joining to make huge contributions to the 2022 title triumph and Kevon Looney dominating on the glass throughout the playoffs.
Fittingly, each of the Warriors players played a part in the Game 6 win. Curry led the way, however, with 34 points, seven rebounds and seven assists as well as two steals and a block – and that was enough for seeing him crowned NBA Finals MVP for the first time in his career after the game.
Green had his best game of the NBA Finals and was all over the court throughout Game 6, closing in on a triple-double with 12 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists along with two steals and two blocks.
The Warriors claim a fourth title, and for the third time victory has come on the road.
