Blowout is the only way to describe the win that gave the Celtics their 17th NBA championship early this morning.

At the final buzzer, it was Celtics 131, the Los Angeles Lakers 92, a 39 point spread. Paul Pierce is the series MVP, but many fans credit the whole team with this win and the season that put the Celtics back on top.

The Celtics had a solid lead by the end of the first quarter and it just grew from there. The list of NBA records helps explain how the Celtics dominated this 6th and final championship game.
