The Golden State Warriors finished their season on a high winning the NBA 2015 title, after an incredible regular season. It was a historic occasion for the Warriors, as it was their first NBA championship since 1975.
Golden State Warriors defeated Cavaliers in game 6, 105-97 to win the best of seven series, 4-2. Stephen Curry continued his form scoring 25 points during the night. With Andre Iguodala scoring 25 points as well, the pressure was taken off Curry.
It seems to have been a master stroke by Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who did not give Iguodala much game time throughout the season, but he proved to be an important player for Warriors in the main event when given a chance. Andre Iguodala has been voted the NBA finals MVP as well.
Though Curry might have made only 3 out of the 11 three pointers he chanced upon, he looked good offensively making some crucial shots and also assisting players to baskets. With Cavs double teaming Curry, he used the pick and roll to good effect and also had 8 assists to his game.
The Cavaliers could not start the game on a bright note as there were a number of turnovers, which only helped the Warriors. Cleveland only came on their own in the fourth quarter of the game, where they scored 36 points, which was not sufficient.
Without Kyrie Irving, LeBron James was the one carrying the entire team on his shoulders and was giving it his all in the NBA finals to help Cavaliers lift the title. He once again top scored for Cavs with 32 points, but he did not receive much support from other players.
A lot was expected from Matthew Dellavedova, but he failed to live up to the expectations with one point in the entire night.
After Warriors won the game, people from all around the world began to congratulate Warriors for their performance. Even US President Barrack Obama tweeted after Warriors defeated Cavaliers.
