”To finally get it done, it’s kind of a hazy feeling,” Curry said. ”Just a sense of relief the way the game finished.”

”When we go in the locker room, we’re jumping up and down, we’re hugging, we’re changed men,” Warriors’ coach Mark Jackson said. ”This is the greatest group of men as far as a team that I’ve ever been around or seen in my life.” – foxsports

Andrew Bogut

Andrew Bogut also became the first Warriors player with 20 rebounds in the playoffs since Larry Smith had 23 on May 12, 1987 at the Lakers.

”It’s very emotional for me because I’ve had a nightmare of a year,” said Bogut, who added four blocks and three assists in an unforgettable performance after rehabilitating his left ankle most of the season.
