Stephen Curry’s performance in the 2022 NBA Finals was nothing short of a rollercoaster ride. He gave a dominating 43-point performance in Game 4 of the finals, which almost certainly will find its place in history books. 

He also had bad days. He registered his worst NBA Finals performance in Game 5, scoring only 15 points in a crucial game. However, Curry did not carry that baggage to Game 6 on Thursday and added 34 points.

Curry was also awarded the first-ever Conference finals MVP award last month after the Golden State Warriors beat Dallas Mavericks in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

Stephen Curry completed a journey like none other, after a run of five consecutive finals, then a plummet to the bottom of the NBA, and now a return to greatness just two seasons after having the league’s worst record.

“We found a way to just get it done,” Curry said after the Warriors accepted the championship trophy and celebrated on the court. “It’s part of a championship pedigree, our experience. … We built this for 10-11 years. That means a lot when you get to this stage.”

Boston Celtics came out firing, riding the energy from a deafening TD Garden crowd to take an early 14-2 lead.

Golden State wasn’t rattled and responded with a 35-8 run that stretched into the second quarter on the way to building as much as a 22-point lead. The Warriors outscored the Celtics 27-17 for the period and carried a 54-39 lead into the second half as some Celtics fans booed the home team as they left the court.
