Golden State on Thursday defeated the Boston Celtics, 103-90, in Game 6 of the N.B.A. finals, winning the series, 4-2, and celebrating their clinching victory on the parquet floor of TD Garden, below 17 championship banners, in front of a throng of disappointed partisans.
Stephen Curry led the way for Golden State on the offensive end finishing the series-clinching win with a team-high 34 points, seven rebounds and seven assists adding yet another chapter to his already storied career.
Curry won his first career Finals MVP award.
Jaylen Brown countered with 34 points, but Jayson Tatum gave his Celtics co-star little help in defeat.
The Celtics began Game 6 as they did elimination games against Milwaukee and Miami, jumping out to an early lead. They made four of their first six shots, including back-to-back 3-pointers by Tatum and Brown, to snare a 12-2 advantage. Boston missed several opportunities to extend the margin and reverted to bad habits, committing four turnovers and allowing three offensive rebounds in the opening 10 minutes.
