The NBA Finals just finished and I’m going to recap each game.

Game 1: The Finals started in San Francisco on June second. The Warriors were winning most of the game until the Celtics outscored them by 24 points in the fourth quarter to win the game. Stephen Curry had 34 points and was the game’s leading scorer. This was a disappointment to the Warriors, as they had one of the best at-home records this season. Celtics lead the series 1-0.

Game 2: Game 2 was also in San Francisco, but this time the Warriors weren’t going to let their fans down. The game was very close until the third quarter. The Warriors outscored the Celtics in the third by 21 points. To cap off that great third quarter, Jordan Poole made a half-court buzzer-beater. The game’s leading scorer was again Steph Curry; however, Jayson Tatum stepped up from his 12-point game 1 effort to a 28-point game 2 for the Celtics. The series was now tied up at 1-1.

Game 3: Game 3 was the first game in Boston. The Celtics were leading most of the game, until the third quarter when the Warriors outscored the Celtics by eight points, eventually taking the lead with three minutes left in the third quarter. However, the Celtics would later rally to win the game. The game’s leading scorer was Steph Curry with 31 points. The Celtics now lead the series 2-1.

Game 4: Game 4 was a must-win for the Warriors. The game was even for the majority of the game, but the Warriors outplayed the Celtics in the last minutes of the fourth quarter to win the game. The leading scorer was once again Steph Curry with 43 points. Game 4 was definitely a disappointment to all Celtics fans. Series tied 2-2.

Game 5: Game 5 went back to San Francisco. The Warriors outplayed the Celtics for the entire game except for in the third quarter. The Warriors would end up winning the game. The game’s leading scorer was Jayson Tatum with 27 points. The Warriors lead the series 3-2.

Game 6: Game 6 was a must-win game for the Celtics. The Celtics started off playing really well. But, as the game went on, the Warriors played a lot better. The Warriors won the game and with that their fourth NBA championship in eight years.
