NBA Finals - Boston Celtics Won Their 17th Title

As we are having our lunch in the office with delicious and tasty food delivered from Mandarin, kuya Alfonso (Matdev driver) arrived and swiftly browsed the net for the latest NBA Finals' result. We enjoyed watching each video from The Boston Celtics won during the 17th NBA title in inexorable fashion, thrashing the L.A. Lakers 131-92 to win the NBA Finals in six games. Dating back to the Larry Bird era, It’s Celtics' first title in 22 years.

Boston's 39-point win surpassed the NBA record for the biggest margin of victory in a championship clincher. The 1965 Celtics beat the Lakers by 33 to win the title that year.

These Celtics completed the greatest one-year turnaround in NBA history. Last season they won just 24 games and missed the playoffs. This season they won 66 regular-season games and finished with a playoff-record 13 home wins.

Paul Pierce, was named MVP of the finals, spent his entire career wearing Celtic green. Averaged more than 21 points in the NBA Finals and scored 17 in the clinching win. The other two members of Boston's Big Three, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, each scored 26. BOSTON CELTICS RULES! HeheheÜ
