With 43 points of a titanic Stephen Currythe Golden State Warriors they expired on friday 107-97 on the field of boston celtics and tied 2-2 in the NBA Finals.
Curry, 48 hours after finishing injured in Game 3, got on the backs of the Warriors to avoid running into a 3-1 deficit that has only been traced once in Finals history.
“We knew how important this game was. Personally, I just thank God that I avoided a major injury and was able to play,” Curry said after the most tense and fast-paced matchup of the series so far.
Curry finished the game with 43 points, 7 triples, 10 rebounds and 4 assists in one of the greatest exhibitions in memory in a Finals game.
Using impossible baskets and 3-pointers under maximum pressure, the point guard rescued the Warriors time and time again every time they stalled against the ferocious Boston defense.
the canadian Andrew Wiggins seconded him with 17 points and 16 rebounds while the veteran Klay Thompson contributed 18 points.
“There was a lot of pride in our group, a lot of talk in the last 48 hours about how we could bounce back in this series,” Curry explained.
At 34 years old, the point guard is marveling in these Finals, scoring an average of 34.3 points per game and assuming even greater responsibilities than in his previous five Finals with Golden State (2015-2019), in which he won three rings without being never recognized with the MVP award (Most Valuable Player).
The Celtics of Jayson Tatum (23 points) and Jaylene Brown (21) came close to giving an almost definitive blow to the tie pushed by the 19,000 passionate fans of the TD Garden.
Boston led into the final four minutes but Curry’s unique talent and several key actions from Dramond Green, that redeemed him from another disappointing performance, put a stop to the Celtics’ path to their coveted 18th ring, which would make them the most winning franchise in history.

“Give them credit, they played well. They made some big shots,” Tatum said. “There are a lot of things that we wish we had done differently, especially on the offensive side. But now a new series begins, the best of three games,” he added.
