NBA Finals: Golden State Warriors beat Boston Celtics to claim fourth title in eight years
Golden State defeated the Boston Celtics and won its fourth NBA Championship in eight years and the first since 2018.
The Warriors won Game 6 103-90 in Boston and won the series 4-2.
After finishing the 2019/20 season with a terrible 15-50 result, they became the first team to win the worst team in the league in two years.
Twice MVP regular season, Stephen Curry was named NBA Finals Player of the Year for the first time.
The 34-year-old averaged 31.2 points in six games and recorded 34, seven assists and seven rebounds in Thursday’s win.
Andrew Wiggins had 18 points and Jordan Paul had 15 to lead the Golden State Warriors to their first NBA championship in four years.
They also won championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018, but lost in the finals in 2016 and 2019 and missed the playoffs in the last two seasons as they rebuilt their roster.
Kevin Durant left the San Francisco-based team in free agency in 2019. Whereas, Kyrie and Clay Thompson, who scored 12 points on Thursday, were injured during the 2019-20 season.
The duo played a key role in winning four championships with leading man Draymond Green.
Four minutes later, the Celtics finished the first quarter 14-2, 22-16. Also the Warriors opened their winning streak 21-0, leading 37-22 in just over 10 minutes in the first half.
In the first six minutes of the third quarter, Carrie scored three goals in a row and put the Golden State Warriors up 72-50. He nodded and started pointing with his ring finger.
Golden State defeated the Dallas Mavericks and won the Western Conference. They became the first team in eight years to reach the finals six times since the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s.
Under Michael Jordan, the Bulls have won six NBA championships from 1991 to 1998, and Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has played the last three games.
Carrie’s accuracy across the arc would have been a game changer, breaking the league’s 3rd record in December.
Now, players in every position should be able to shoot threes and defend themselves from threes.
Carrie is the seventh person to win at least four titles in the regular season after Karim Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and Bill Russell and two MVP Awards.
