Warriors Beat Celtics in Game 6 to Win 2022 NBA Finals

Last Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors won their fourth NBA championship, outscoring the Boston Celtics 103-90. It is their fourth championship in eight seasons, an impressive one judging by the ups and downs the team has had for the past few years. 

Undoubtedly one of the most controversial Warriors players, Stephen Curry got his first finals MVP by averaging 31.2 points, six rebounds, five assists, and two steals on 48-44 shooting splits against one of the greatest defenses ever seen. 

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who has four coaching titles under his belt, declared after the game that the team owes the championship to Stephen Curry.  

“He has that kind of humility and confidence all wrapped up into one, it makes everyone in that locker room all want to fight for him. He’s amazing, and I couldn’t be happier for him,” he said. 

Stephen Curry was also interviewed after their victory:

“We’ve got four championships. God is great. The ability to be on this stage and play with amazing teammates against a great Boston Celtics team gave us everything to try to get to the finish line.”

Curry also talked about the hate he had been receiving, saying that he definitely heard all the narratives and that he believes this fourth championship will shut up the critics. 

All that critics’ talk was not unwarranted though, as after trailing 1-0 and 2-1, the Warriors had to win the last three games to end the 2021-22 season with this 103-90 victory. After a good start to the season, the Warriors’ defense flailed when Draymond Green was injured for two months.

But the Warriors’ defense stepped up in the Finals, as it absolutely thrashed the Celtics in the last three games.

Stephen Curry led the way with 34 points. He earned the Bill Russell Finals MVP award, averaging 31 points—his highest output in six Finals—over the six games.

    Tennis: When Sports and Popular Culture Meet

    Ten years ago, I was playing tennis competitively, and because I was very into it, and subconsciously as a kid loved media and popular culture. I started looking into who was famous at the time and the narrative surrounding them.
    Fast forward, now that I am out of my tennis phase I am seeing that the players who I used to follow religiously are retiring one after the other. Maybe that’s a good thing, because now they are leaving space for new faces to grow.

    Cooper Rush has become part of an exclusive club of quarterbacks who’ve had flawless starting seasons since the NFL’s inception.

    Dance: Is it an Art or a Sport?

    Oftentimes we are taught to think of things in terms of their opposites: good versus bad, hot versus cold, dark versus light. It’s this mode of thinking that has led to many harmful stereotypes and disagreements. It is a limited way of thinking, and we should thus seek to move beyond its constraints. That is why when the matter of deciding whether dance is an art or a sport, my answer is less restricted. I think it is both.
