It wasn’t meant to be as the Warriors handled the business professionally showing why they have won 4 titles in the last 8 years. There was a whole host of celebrities at the game expecting to see a spectacle.

Hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy above their heads, the Warriors were buoyant after winning 3 straight games to seal the series. Boston is known to be a difficult place for opponents due to the loud and fierce crowd.

Rap superstars Gucci Mane and G-Eazy were also in the arena. Gucci Mane is a regular at the Celtics’ games as he is close to Celtics forward, Jaylen Brown. It was a spectacle worth the biggest game for the Boston Celtics after a long time.

Warriors shut the noise

The Golden State Warriors came into this game knowing the Celtics recovered from a similar situation against the Milwaukee Bucks in the Conference Semifinals. Boston came out all guns blazing and took a double-digit lead early in the game. However, the Warriors quickly turned the game around with a pivotal 21-0 run.

The Celtics could not recover from that huge run and were left chasing the game. Steph Curry was awarded the Finals MVP for his excellent performances throughout the series.

Jaylen Brown lead the team with 34 points and Al Horford made a lot of big baskets on his way to 19 points. Meanwhile, Jayson Tatum, who had been very well marshaled till now, was held to a meager 13 points. It was a series to forget for the All-NBA forward and he will be hoping to bounce back from this disappointment.
