The Golden State Warriors are NBA champions.

Another dazzling performance from Steph Curry helped guide the team to a 103-90 victory in Game 6 of their Finals series against the Boston Celtics.

The win means Warriors stars Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and - of course - Curry himself now have four rings each.

As for head coach Steve Kerr, he now has nine.



With Golden State arriving to TD Garden in Boston needing just a win to clinch the series, the Celtics weren't expected to roll over easily and were poised to put up a fight.

But from the referee's very first whistle, the likes of Thompson, Green and Curry showed their championship experience.

The NBA veteran's didn't let the occasion get to them and they were supported brilliantly by the Warriors' new era of stars in Jordan Poole, Gary Payton II and Andrew Wiggins.

As for the Celtics, things just weren't going their way with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown failing to fire considering their lofty standards.

Meanwhile, Al Horford was bossing things in the paint, but it didn't take long for the Warriors to pick up on this and and target him.

At one point in the third quarter, the Warriors started pulling away as the scoreline for larger and larger – and that was primary thanks to one man.

Chef Curry was at his absolute best in Game 6, producing a performance for the ages.

He finished the night with 34 Points, 7 Rebounds, 7 Assists and had a field goal percentage of 57.

The 34-year-old also managed to drained his 150th career three-pointer.

And to cap things off, he was named Finals MVP as he secured his fourth championship ring.

An emotional Curry fought back the tears at full-time – and who could blame him?

“You hit rock bottom with injuries and the long road ahead... never take this for granted because you never know when you’ll get back here,” Curry said post-game.

“To get back here means the world.”

He continued: “You know how long the road is to get back here, Boston is a good team, every team we played in the west is a great team, but we just found away to get it done.

“Everybody on this stage had a part in this, from the front office, coaches, players.

“At the beginning of the year, what were they saying? We weren’t even on the radar. Now we’re here with two trophies.”
