Golden State Warriors fans celebrate the Dubs' victory in Boston, beating the Celtics for its seventh NBA championship.

BOSTON (KGO) -- What a night it was for Dub Nation who came from all over to see the Golden State Warriors close it out in Boston against the Celtics, winning its fourth title in eight years.

The Celtics scored 90 and the Warriors scored 103.

The crowd was roaring to start the game, but the Warriors came back, took that crowd out of the game, and won it all in Dubs fashion by being the best out there.
