Steph Curry scored 34 points on the way to his first NBA finals MVP trophy, and Andrew Wiggins added 18 as the Golden State Warriors got the 103-90 road win against the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals and won their seventh NBA championship title.

It’s the Warriors‘ fourth title in eight years since 2015, as Golden State emerges as a modern NBA dynasty behind Curry who also had seven rebounds and seven assists.

Jordan Poole added 15 points off the bench, while Draymond Green and Klay Thompson had 12 points each. Green in his best game in this finals series also had 12 rebounds and eight assists.

Thanks to a 21-0 run in the first half, the Warriors were in total control in Boston and led even by 22 points (72-50) in the third quarter after having a 15-point advantage at halftime (54-39).

Boston thanks to Al Horford and Jalen Brown managed to trim the lead of the Warriors to eight points (86-78) with five minutes left, but the champs’ answer was a 10-3 run with Wiggins and Curry making key baskets.

Brown finished the game with 34 points, Horford had 19 points and 14 rebounds, and Jason Tatum scored 13 points on just six out of 18 shots.

Serb forward Nemanja Bjelica of the Warriors and German big man Daniel Theis of the Celtics weren’t used in the game. However, Bjelica become the fourth Serb to win an NBA championship after Pedja Stojakovic, Darko Milicic, and Ognjen Kuzmic, who was part of the Warriors’ 2015 championship roster.
