Golden State Warriors win the 2023 NBA Championship
The 2023 NBA Finals marks the conclusion of the championship series of the National Basketball Association's (NBA) 2022&ndash23 season. The Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors defeated the Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics in six games (4&ndash2) for their fourth championship in eight years. The Warriors became the 10th team in NBA history to win four championships in eight years or less, and the first since the Michael Jordan&ndashled Chicago Bulls from 1991 to 1993.
The Warriors were led by Stephen Curry, who was named the NBA Finals MVP. Curry averaged 31.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game in the series. He also shot 48.2% from three-point range, which was the highest field goal percentage in NBA Finals history for a player who attempted at least 100 three-pointers. The Celtics were led by Jayson Tatum, who averaged 26.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game in the series. Tatum was named to the NBA All-Finals Second Team.
The 2023 NBA Finals was a tightly contested series, with each team winning three games. The Warriors won the decisive Game 6 at home, becoming the first team since the 2015 Warriors to win the NBA Finals after trailing 2&ndash1. The Warriors' victory was a historic accomplishment, and it cemented their status as one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history. The Warriors have now won four championships in eight years, and they have done so with a core group of players that includes Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala.
The Celtics' loss was disappointing, but they should be proud of their season. The Celtics were the youngest team in the NBA Finals, and they showed a lot of promise. The Celtics have a bright future, and they should be contenders for many years to come. The 2023 NBA Finals was a great series, and it was a fitting end to a great season. The Warriors are the NBA champions, and they are now one of the most storied franchises in NBA history.
