With 34 points off Stephen Currythe Warriors of the Golden State defeated the Boston Celtics 103-90 on Thursday night and the win gives the trio of Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green their fourth joint title (all under head coach Steve Kerr) to their championships of 2015, 2017 and 2018. After an overnight blowout in Boston, the Golden State Warriors returned to San Francisco Friday night to celebrate their fourth NBA title in eight years by beating the Celtics in six games.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr is no stranger to the festivities surrounding an NBA title celebration. Kerr won his ninth NBA championship as a player and coach Thursday night when the Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. When the 2021-22 season began, Kerr and the Warriors weren’t expected to win the championship, and they went into the postseason No. 3 in the Western Conference.
Stephen Curry with the exclamation point after unproductive game 5
The Warriors warned Stephen Curry would be “furious” after failing to make a 3-pointer in Game 5, the two-time MVP responded in typical Steph fashion, scoring 34 points on 12-for-21 shooting from the field and 6-for-11 from 3-point range. Curry was then, of course, crowned Finals MVP after averaging 31.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists against the Celtics while shooting 41.8 percent from deep. Also outstanding were Thompson (12 points) and Green (12 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists). Jordan Poole was a sensation when he was in the zone and scored 15 points off the bench in an important game, and Gary Payton II and Otto Porter Jr. each scored a couple of clutch buckets, while Kevon Looney once made his presence felt on the offensive boards more.
Jaylen Brown (32 points) contributed for the Boston Celtics, and Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart, Al Horford and Robert Williams also contributed. The turnovers again proved Boston’s biggest downfall, while Boston’s bench struggled to offer anything to match the Warriors’ tenacity at the other end of the floor, with Grant Williams, Derrick White and Payton Pritchard all scoring just five points combined.

Steve Kerr – The man, the myth, the legend
Steve Kerr won five championship rings during his playing career and led the Golden State Warriors to four NBA titles in eight seasons. The Warriors celebrated late Thursday at TD Garden in Boston, early Friday morning and later in the day on the flight back to the Bay Area. Kerr went to reporters after landing at San Francisco International Airport and was asked how he was feeling: “I won’t lie. I’m hungover right now.” said Kerr with a laugh. “We had a great night last night. We had an incredible night. A late night, but a special one, celebrated only with the team, the families. Just have a nice night.”
In uniform, he has won five championships with Chicago, where he beat the memorable jumper in the 1997 Bulls championship game against the Utah Jazz and in 1999 with the San Antonio Spurs. He is the first person in NBA history to win at least four titles as a player and coach. Curry may be the best outside shooter of all time, but Kerr has the best 3-point shot percentage in NBA history at 45.4 percent.
