The Golden State Warriors finally re-claims the NBA title with their Game 6 win against Cleveland Cavaliers 105-97; a first in 40 years and the 4th NBA championship title for their franchise. Warriors wins the series 4-2.
In today’s Game 6 of NBA Finals 2015, the Warriors proved their dominance after controlling every quarters of the game. NBA MVP Steph Curry and Andre Iguodala lead the Warriors to their 4th championship after scoring 25 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists and 25 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assist respectively. Warriors 3-point shooting is monumental in winning this game after egding Cavs in the 3-point shooting department 38.2% versus 23.1. They also lead Cavs in the Field Goal department 43.5% against 39.0%.
Meanwhile, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James’ double-double scoring at 32 points, 18 rebounds with 9 assists wasn’t enough to pull a do a die game 7 to possibly give Cleveland its first NBA championship title. LeBron has had a stellar finals performance with his consistent double-double or even triple-double scoring but it looks like he’s the only one doing it for the Cavs. There maybe JR Smith and Thompson (who scored 19 and 17 points) to work with him but still not enough to pull-out a win to extend the series.
This Golden State win gave Steve Kerr his 1st NBA Championship title as a head coach. It’s also good to note that this is Kerr’s debut coaching stint, so a very good way to celebrate a championship of a rookie coach.
Since the start of the 2014-2015 NBA season, GSW and Kerr has always been a favorite to win the title after having the most number of wins in the regular season. They are also ranked 3rd among the teams with the most numbers of wins ever in an NBA season at 83-20 following Chicago Bulls in the ’95-’96 season at 87-13 and Bulls again in the following year ’96-’97 season at 84-17.
Warriors really deserve this golden moment that they’ve waited for a very long time. So as the golden NBA Trophy that they will bring home.
