The Golden State Warriors beat the Boston Celtics to claim their fourth NBA title in eight years.
The Warriors won 103-90 in game six in Boston to clinch the series 4-2.
Having finished 2019-20 with a dire 15-50 record, they are also the first team to go from the league’s worst side to a championship in two years.
Stephen Curry, twice named the league’s most valuable player for the regular season, was the NBA Finals MVP for the first time in his career.
The Warriors win a fourth title, with the first three rings coming in 2015, 2017 and 2018, when Golden State was dominant and made five consecutive trips to the finals.
Thursday night’s victory sees the Warriors claim the franchise’s seventh championship overall, moving them clear in third place all-time behind the Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, who remain tied on 18 apiece at the top.
