Trailing 2-1 heading into Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday, the Golden State Warriors needed a big game from Steph Curry. That’s exactly what they got.

Curry had a monster game in Golden State’s 107-97 win over the Boston Celtics.

He finished the game with a double-double, scoring 43 points and hauling in 10 rebounds. He was also efficient, shooting 14-for-26 from the field, 7-for-14 on three-pointers and 8-for-9 on free throws.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade both praised Curry for his performance.

They were far from alone. NBA players, fans and others in the NBA world were in awe of Curry’s Game 4 performance.

The 43 points were Curry’s second-highest total ever in an NBA Finals Game and the most ever in a win. His 47-point outing in Game 3 in the 2019 Finals coming in a 123-109 loss to the Toronto Raptors.

And is if the stats weren’t overwhelming enough, there’s more to marvel at.

Curry is that he was certainly not at 100% for Game 4. He was hurt at the end of Game 3 and while he quickly proclaimed that he would play, it was a similar injury to the one that caused him to final weeks of the regular season.

With an extra day off between games and the series returning to San Francisco for Game 5, we can only imagine what kind of show Curry will put on for the home crowd on Monday night.
