NBA: Warriors emerge champions after a resounding defeat of Celtics
Golden State Warriors have clinched the NBA Finals championship trophy for the fourth time in eight seasons after a resounding victory over Boston Celtics in the Game Six of the NBA finals earlier on Friday. All thanks to Steph Curry whose 34 points, seven assists and seven rebounds helped the Dubs claim a 103-90 win over Celtics and ultimately make them the 2022 NBA Champions. The triumph is a remarkable turnaround for the Warriors, who missed the playoffs in successive two seasons amid a torrent of injuries before defeating the Nuggets, Grizzlies, Mavericks and Celtics this year to claim the Larry O'Brien trophy. Meanwhile, it is the seventh title overall for the franchise, which was founded in Philadelphia in 1946 as one of the original members of the Basketball Association of America. An elated and emotional Steph Curry couldn't hide his joy after leading his side to another NBA glory. "I'm so proud of our group, at the beginning of the season nobody thought we would be here except for everybody on this court". "We were far away from it, we hit rock bottom with injuries and the long road of work ahead and trying to fill in the right pieces and the right guys." " You can't ever take this for granted because you never know when you're going to get back there." Curry said. The Warriors also captured the league’s first championship in the ’46-47 season.
