Warriors close out Celtics in Game 6 to win fourth NBA championship in eight years
The Golden State Warriors delivered a masterclass in closing out an NBA Finals on the road.
After a slow start in which the Boston Celtics opened a 12-point lead
the Warriors took control with an offensive outburst
and defensive clinic that staggered the Celtics and silenced the crowed at TD Garden.
Golden State handled Boston 103-90 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, claiming its fourth title in eight seasons and first since 2018.
Steph Curry, who demoralized Boston with his shooting in the series, crushed the Celtics with one 3-pointer after another.
He had 34 points on 12-for-21 shooting, including 6-for-11 on 3s.
It was Curry’s fifth 30-point game of the Finals, earning his first Finals MVP.
It was a brutal way for the Celtics to learn a lesson. They led 14-2, and a Game 7 seemed possible.
