For years later, the Golden State Warrios have risen again as NBA champions. Steve Kerr´s guys ensured that the series did not return to the Chase Center with a 90-104 victory in Boston, ending the 2021-2022 season and winning the seventh tittle in franchise history, the fourth one in the last eight years.
The performance of this game was worthy of a team with such a track record, which has been this situation before and which never wavered. The Boston Celtics tried to mark territory with a great start to the game in which they took an advantage of 14-2 lead, but once they got past that barrage, Golden State controlled the situation pretty much from the beginning to the end. With an excellent defensive work as a bastion, the visitors took control of the clash and dynamited that difference in a matter of minutes, starting a devastating partial that would catapult them to the victory and consequently, to win the tittle.
The entry of Gary Payton II and Jordan Poole gave the Warriors a freshness both in defense, where Payton was stratospheric putting his hands on the ball and causing losses, and in attack, where Poole acted as a plunger scoring 11 of his 15 points in his first 6 minutes on the parquet. Taking advantage of this impact from the bench, as opposed to that of the local substitutes who entered the court, Golden Stated signed a 0-21 run with which they managed not only to take the lead, but also to open a gap that Udoka´s guys would never be able to close or to try a possible comeback on the match.
This, in fact, grew as Stephen Curry entered the game who, in another magical night of very strong marks on his person, punished every millimetre conceded by the Boston defense. Going up to 34 points, adding as much from the triple (6 out of 11) as thanks to his ability to penetrate and attack the rim. Specifically, it was the latter that helped him the most in the final stretch because with the Celtics trying to close the gap. He punished the defensive changes again and again, attacking Horford for speed and adding layups under the rim. The point guard, who rounded off the night with 7 assists and 7 rebounds, more that made up for this 0/9 in triples in Game 5, leaving another legendary performance in the Finals. In this time he has dominated without a shed of doubt.
