Jordan Poole of the Golden State Warriors secured the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, while Stephen Curry was awarded the Bill Russell NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award after their team defeated the Boston Celtics in Game 6 to win the NBA Finals at TD Garden on June 16, 2022. Carlos Avila Gonzalez captured the moment for The Chronicle.
The Golden State Warriors secured their fourth championship in eight years after defeating the Boston Celtics 103-90 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Despite injuries and setbacks this season, the team managed to come out on top once again thanks to the leadership of Stephen Curry, who bounced back from a tough Game 5 to score 34 points and knock down 6 of 11 three-pointers. Curry also finished with seven rebounds and seven assists in 40 minutes. The Warriors didn’t have a typical Game 6 performance from Klay Thompson, but thanks to Curry, they were able to clinch the victory. A parade to celebrate the Warriors’ championship is set for Monday on San Francisco’s Market Street. Curry earned his first NBA Finals MVP Award.
The Warriors are reclaiming their position, restoring their dynasty, and securing a new status in NBA history.
