Steph Curry was named the NBA Finals MVP for the first time in his career after the Golden State Warriors eliminated the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
All eleven voters from national outlets selected Curry as the Finals MVP. Curry averaged 31.2 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists in the series, all while shooting 48% from the field and 44% from 3.
Curry finished Game 6 with 34 points, 7 assists, and 7 rebounds. Curry’s high in the series came during a 43-point performance in Game 4 to even the series 2-2.
“You know this is what it’s all about — playing for a championship and what we’ve been through the last three years,” Curry told ESPN after the game. “Beginning of the season, no one thought we’d be here except everybody on this court right now. It’s amazing. It’s very surreal, though, very surreal.”
The title represents Curry’s fourth in the last eight years.
