The Golden State Warriors won the NBA championship last night, beating the Boston Celtics 103-90 in Game 6 of the finals. It marks the seventh title in franchise history and the team’s fourth since 2015.
Despite appearing five straight finals between 2015 and 2019—and winning in 2015, 2017, and 2018—the team notched the league’s worst record two seasons ago amid injuries to stars Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. Having returned to nearly full health entering the playoffs, Curry dominated the postseason, including a 34 point, seven rebound, seven assist performance last night. The eight-time All Star was named Finals Most Valuable Player for the first time in his career.
