THIS Is EXACTLY How Boston Lost The Championship

The rule is easy, when Steph Curry is in transition, you keep an eye on him at all times, even when he gives the ball up, because as we stop it right here, you already know that he’s going to curl and relocate out at the three point line, get the ball back, fire away and swish it.
And this is just a death sentence, as Curry is lurking from behind, and all 3 Celtics are pointing but no one picks up the most deadly shooter that this league has ever seen, so he raises up from the finals emblem and without exaggeration proclaims to the whole arena that he’s going to get his fourth ring.
Steph was unstoppable once again, but for this close out win, Golden State did something special, something that Boston could not find an answer for.
Let me break down exactly how they won the championship. What up everybody, my name is Stefan and this is Heat Check. Let’s get into it.
No other player in the league has this much power and you know the fear is immeasurable just by looking at these fly bys as soon as he even blinks with his eyes, the overreaction to it is crazy, yet it totally makes sense.
So as a side effect of having to be that close to Steph, he uses it to penetrate inside and look at how easy this looks.
Just saying that he had another spectacular game with 34 points 7 rebounds 7 assists on 57% from the field doesn’t do him justice, he could not be stopped. This looks like a walk in the park for him.
But just as impressive in this game was the fight that he showed on the defensive end.
Early on Boston tried to go at him and post him up in the paint, but he held his ground and as you can see, some of those possessions did not end well for the Celtics.
ESPN had a stat comparing his production on both ends of the floor. And it looks impressive as you can see. On defense he gave up 10 points as the primary guy and the Celtics shot 3 for 12 on those possessions, a miserable 25% along with 6 turnovers.
Then we got Draymond Green. Check out how he baited the defense here by asking for the screen for Steph, and this should be a hand off but as Klay cuts inside, watch the laser pass in traffic right on the money and Thompson lays it in. Amazing.
Then, these are the little things, the championship level plays, of sticking with it and tapping it out, subsequently leading to a three pointer. These are extra points.
And he did it again as you can see this is a similar situation, and as he grabs the offensive rebound, finds Poole once again for another three.
Draymond was even more imposing on defense. Look at the effort right here to stay in front of Jayson Tatum, and as soon as Looney comes out to help right here, Green will rotate over to switch it, doing it so quickly that he snatches this pass, and takes off on a fast break.
And his blocks were even crazier.
Draymond played by far his best game of the finals series, almost getting a triple double with 12 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. He was literally all over the floor and this was one of his vintage performances when the team needed it the most.
And as you can see most of these plays are based on energy and effort.
That was the case as well with Andrew Wiggins who had another monster 2 way game, contributing on offense while pretty much shutting down Jayson Tatum on the other end of the floor. Wiggins has completely flipped the narrative about himself in a positive way of course, and I’m really happy for him.
And what I said about energy and effort for both Green and Wiggins, this was the case for the entire Golden State team, and actually this was the one special thing that Boston couldn’t find an answer for. Which is staggering to me.
Even tho they were bigger, the Celtics got outrebounded and gave away 15 offensive boards, which you can see how that contributed to extra possessions and points for the Warriors.
Not only that, but Golden State’s activity and aggressiveness on defense forced 22 turnovers from Boston.
Ime Udoka’s squad did come out strong to start the game but as soon as the Warriors withstood that initial run, they went on a 21-0 blitz, built a big lead and they pretty much didn’t look back all the way to the final buzzer and the championship.
Speaking of that, this is an incredible storyline. Steph finally gets that finals MVP trophy that he deserved in 2015, and to shut all the haters who were saying that this is 1 thing that he’s missing in his career. And to say that for a guy that literally changed the game is ridiculous. But nevertheless he got it. And still puts the team first.
Then Klay- after missing 2 and a half years to the most difficult injuries that a basketball player can have, and literally crying on the bench after games, to becoming a champion, that’s a true dream of a comeback.
And on the Boston side of things, first of all, this was a massive success beyond anyone’s expectations. With a new coach, and those early struggles, the talks about breaking up their star duo, to game 6 of the finals is nothing short of amazing.

    Curry is so humble, I know deep inside he wants that fmvp but he never talked about it because he felt that it discredits his team’s efforts. I wouldn’t mind seeing them win again in the next couple of years. Such a likeable team.

  9. I think BOS and GSW will meet again in the finals for the next season. And GSW will win the champ again. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  10. Wiggins is a monster
