The Golden State Warriors, led by a superb Stephen Curry, beat the Boston Celtics and won their seventh NBA ring.
Stephen Curry this Thursday brought glory to the Golden State Warriorsleading them with 34 points and six three-pointers to a 103-90 win at Los Angeles boston celtics which earned the California franchise the seventh NBA title, the fourth in the last eight years.
It had to be Curry, the man who changed the history of the Warriors, to put his signature on a new title for Steve Kerr’s team, this time against the Celtics who saw the vanishing dream of conquering their eighteenth crown.
After triumphs in 1947, 1956, 1975, 2015, 2017 and 2018, the Warriors added a new Larry O’Brien trophy to their roster and they did it at home at TD Garden in one of the most most glorious in the NBA.
Curry named Finals MVP for the first time in his careerled his team with 34 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, backed by 18 points from Andrew Wiggins and a 12-point, 12-rebound double-double from Draymond Green.
The Warriors knocked down a few Celtics in which Jayson Tatum didn’t top thirteen points, three rebounds and seven assists.
Jaylen Brown’s 34 points and Dominican Al Horford’s double-double of 19 points and fourteen rebounds weren’t enough for Ime Udoka’s team to force Game 7 of the series.

The Golden State Warriors less and more
And the game couldn’t have started better for the Celtics, with a 14-2 carried by the triplets of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatumand with two early fouls from Klay Thompson, which forced Kerr’s timeout.
Based on intense defense and good shooting percentages, the Celtics interpreted Udoka’s plan in the best way, but not for long.
The Warriors were able to manage the bad start, limit the negative partials, and came out between the final stretch of the first period and the start of the second with a devastating 21-0 that radically changed the face of the game.
Draymond Green opened, in the third period, an authentic festival of hat-tricks with which the Warriors again escaped with a 22-point lead.
Horford scored three straight hat-tricks for the Celtics, but Porter Jr, with two, and Curry, with two others, including the last from long range, frustrated Udoka’s attempts but it wasn’t enough to bring down the competitive soul of the Greens.
In particular that of Horford, who with a masterful game at three points rewarded the desperate push of the Celtics and reduced the gap to nine points (74-65).
Kerr’s men managed to hold on to their advantage, not allowing the Celtics to close, although Curry and Thompson repeatedly pardoned, from the perimeter, the blow that could be final. It kept them fighting until the end, when Jaylen Brown put the Celtics within eight points.
It was necessary to remain lucid and Draymond Green and Curry, of great penetration, managed to curb the enthusiasm of the Garden, which Horford was the last to give up.
The sentence came three minutes from the end, when Curry, on a corner, chained the triple from 96-81, to reach 30 points. Celtics fans began to leave the stands.
