Written by: Treal Holland
Steph Curry. Steph Curry. Steph Curry.
It was a great game resembling a heavyweight fight as each team went back & forth until the Warriors finally pulled away late in the fourth to even the series 2-2 with a 107-97 victory.
What a performance for the two-time league MVP as he poured in 43 points (14-26 FG) an a ridiculous 7-14 from three.
When Curry wasn't making shoots from what seems like every spot on the floor he also grabbed 10 rebounds.
According to ESPN Stats & Info at age 34 yrs-88 days, Curry is the 2nd-oldest player in NBA Finals history to record a 40-10 game behind only LeBron James in 2020.
"Been here six times, got a lot of experience in terms of staying composed and confident in what you can do, the endurance in being able to fight through the foot (injury) and just play my game," Curry told ABC's Lisa Salters after the game.
Andrew Wiggins came up big as well in a crucial game posting a monster double-double with 17 points & 16 rebounds.
The Warriors improved to 6-0 coming off a lost in this year's playoffs.
The Celtics lead for much periods of the game with their largest lead being 7 but they could never just pull away & take complete control of the contest.
The Celtics offense went cold in the fourth quarter. It made just two shots in the final 7:32 of the game.
Jayson Tatum lead the Celtics with 23 points on 8-23FG.
The series moves back to The Bay for game 5 on Monday night which shapes up to be the most pivotal game in the series as the winning team would take a 3-2 series lead.
