The dominance of professional basketball has returned to the West Coast.

The Golden State Warriors captured the team’s fourth NBA title in eight years on Thursday night, decisively defeating the Boston Celtics 103–90 on the road to win a seven-game championship streak 4–2. It was the franchise’s seventh overall title.

Stephen Curry scored 34 points for Golden State and won the Series MVP award. Curry was joined by veterans Clay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala, who won their fourth championship with Golden State.

“We should have taken the opportunity to come back here,” Curry said after the game. “We found a way to just do it. We weren’t even on the radar at the beginning of the season.”

The Golden State championship came after the team bounced back from a 2-1 series loss.

“They stumped us in this series,” said Golden State coach Steve Kerr, acknowledging how difficult it is to lose in the Finals. During Kerr’s coaching tenure, the Warriors lost two series in the NBA Finals.

“It’s terrible to go so far and fail.”

The first three NBA title rings for Curry, Thompson, Green, and Iguodala came in 2015, 2017, and 2018, when Golden State reached the Finals five times in a row. But the team then sank to the bottom of the league due to injuries and player relegations. The team won the title just two years after recording the worst result in the league.

The Warriors were 15-50 in 2019-20. According to ESPN, the franchise became the first NBA team to go from the worst record to the championship in three seasons.
