Warriors Win In Six
On Thursday night the Celtics took the parquet floor for the last time in the 2021-2022 season. Needing to win to push the NBA Finals to a Game 7 in San Francisco, they fell short to the greatest shooter in NBA history, and a formidable Warriors team with championship pedigree.
Behind the aforementioned Curry’s 34 points, the Warriors cliched their 4th title in 8 years. Jaylen Brown did what he could with his own 34 points for the Celtics, but the star they needed to shine in Jayson Tatum, was never able to burn bright enough in the biggest moments.
Golden State’s lead grew to 22 points in the second half, and the Celtics did cut the deficit to 9, with veteran Al Horford sinking big shots, however the Warriors never looked truly troubled, and why would you when you have 2-time MVP, and now Finals MVP in Steph Curry.
Solidifying their place with the greatest teams in the history of the league, the Warriors will now celebrate their achievement, with their core of Curry, Thompson, and Green in their early 30’s, their story is still yet to be finished as they continue to build on their legacy.
