Steph Curry finally has his NBA Finals MVP!
On Thursday, the Golden State Warriors bested the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals 103-90. While the Celtics held an early lead, the Warriors went on a 21-0 run to put the game completely out of hand in the second quarter, though Boston made it a bit tight late.
Headed into Game 6, Curry (+100) had the best odds of becoming the NBA Finals MVP, despite going 0-for-9 from distance in the previous game. Many were hoping this would finally be the year Curry would get his due as MVP and after going 12-21 in FG and 6-11 from three in the deciding game, the four-time NBA champion finally got the goods.
Not only that, Curry knew it way back in the third quarter after hitting a deep three and gesturing to his ring finger.
