Top ten plays of the 2022 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics

The Golden State Warriors overcame the Boston Celtics 4-2 in the 2021/22 NBA Finals to claim their fourth championship in eight years. But what were the best plays of the series?

The Warriors' dynasty continued after two difficult seasons, with Klay Thompson, Steph Curry and Draymond Green picking up their fourth ring as a trio.
Boston gave the old guard a run for their money, leading the series 1-0 and 2-1, but three straight wins for Steve Kerr's team propelled Golden State to another championship.
Curry picked up his first Finals MVP award for his performance against the Celtics, cementing himself as one of the best to ever do it, if that was ever in doubt. But this championship completes the set for the point guard, who has arguably broken into the top ten for NBA players of all time, but that is a debate for another day.

From dunks, to assists, to blocks, to shots, Planet Sport picks the top ten moments/plays of the 2022 NBA Finals.

10) Andrew Wiggins dunk - Game 5

That is what you call a rack attack...

9) Steph Curry 3-pointer - Game 6

The nail in the coffin as Curry stretched the lead in the third quarter of the title-clinching Game 6 victory.

8) Derrick White floater + foul - Game 4

And the foul! White with a lovely spin and floater to get the basket and go to the line.

7) Steph Curry lay-up - Game 1

Curry breezes past Jaylen Brown and sends his lay-up to the moon, before landing on his back as the ball swishes through the hoop.

6) Steph Curry floater - Game 4

Steph was dancing before the long-range floater picked him up a smooth two points.

5) Robert Williams III block - Game 6

Emphatic, and on the Finals MVP as well. This was one of FIVE blocks by Williams in Game 6.

4) Al Horford quarterback assist - Game 3

Talk about showing your initiative. Horford channeled his inner American footballer to pick up a sweet dime.

3) Jordan Poole half-court buzzer-beater - Game 2

What a way to end the third quarter of a ball game...

2) Jaylen Brown block to dunk - Game 1

From one end of the floor to the other, Brown was putting in work in the C's Game 1 win.

1) Jordan Poole half-court buzzer-beater - Game 5

His second half-court buzzer-beater to end the third of this series. This shot propelled the Warriors to a Game 5 win, giving Golden State that much-needed push to overcome their opponents.
