NBA 2021-22: Full List of Award Winners, MVP, Prize Money, Records and Stats

Golden State Warriors on Thursday (June 16) defeated Boston Celtics 103-90 in game 6 of the NBA 2021-22 Finals for a 4-2 series win that helped them seal their seventh NBA Championship.

Celtics started on top in front of their home fans with a 14-2 lead, but the Warriors fought back to cut short the deficit and then went a game-winning 21-0 run to jump ahead 37-22, and from then Celtics were never able to trim the lead to below eight points.

Stephen Curry, who secured his first ever Finals MVP, ended the final with a team-high 34 points, while also adding seven rebounds and seven assists. Jaylen Brown was the Celtics' brightest star, scoring 34 points on 12-of-23 shooting, but he also had five turnovers, which was a theme for the hosts.

This is the Warriors' fourth NBA title in the past eight seasons and Thursday's win completed an impressive comeback, from 2-1 down in the series to seal the series with a 4-2 victory after winning the last three contests, including two in Boston.
