It happened to be a full circle for the Warriors, champions of 2018 to claim the title again after missing out on two consecutive playoffs, in 2020 and 2021.

The Warriors, who visited the Celtics at Boston's TD Garden, were leading the game 54-39 before the break.

The losing team of the 2022 finals, the Celtics, has 17 NBA championships, the last in 2008.

By losing the finals series, the Celtics were unable to claim the crown of the team with the most championship titles in NBA history. (Anadolu)
