Boston – Stephen Curry Not the one who shows tons of emotion during a game. But in the 4th game of the NBA Final against the Boston Celtics, the Golden State Warriors 107-97, Curry wore his heart in his sleeve all night.
Late in the first quarter, after dropping 3-pointers backwards, Curry came running to the opposite end of the court and started shouting at the Boston fans – he could do it once or twice after a big win. Shot, but rarely from the opening moments.
“It felt like we had to let everyone know we were here tonight,” Carrie said. “Whether it’s their crowd, their team, our team, whoever wants to see that energy and that fire, we feed it.
Charlie finished with 43 points, including seven 3-points in 14-for-26 shooting, and added 10 rebounds and four assists. He became the fifth guard in NBA history to score at least 40 points and 10 rebounds in a final.
“Incredible,” Tremond Green Said. “Put us on his back. We wanted to win. Victory is very necessary. It’s a game we have to play. Come out and you know why he’s one of the best players to ever play this game, you know, this system was able to take him to so much success. This is totally unbelievable. “
Green said he knew Charlie would not let the Warriors lose. Kerr called his game “fantastic.” Clay Thompson Ranked as Curry’s No. 1 Finals Performance.
Curry did not list his shows, but said he understood the importance of what he did on Friday night, especially considering the danger. Friday’s game would have ended in a 3-1 draw with the Warriors or a two-game series draw.
Curry confirmed that it was the latter.
“It means it’s all about the urgency we need to have tonight to win on the road, to retain some life in the series, to regain the home-court advantage, and to try to build some momentum in our way,” Curry said.
Curry scored 33 points in the first three quarters, which was consistent in the first three games of the series. But his problem area was the fourth quarter, where he averaged just three points on 30% of field goal shooting. He had only six points added in games 1, 2 and 3.
On Friday, he scored 10 runs in the final. He scored 24 points overall in the second half, the most points of his career in the second half of the final.
The Warriors, as a team, put clamps on the Celtics in the fourth quarter. Golden State beat Boston 15-0 at the time of the crisis and became the first team in the last 50 seasons to win the final by at least 10 points.
“We help each other, we play together, we play aggressively on the defensive side, and most importantly we shut down,” Wiggins said. “You know, don’t like rebounds. No offensive rebounds. No second chance points. So that’s great.”
With just over a minute left in the game, the Warriors advanced to the 3rd, when Thompson missed a 3-pointer to catch the Green attack rebound. He sent it back to Curry, but the Celtics quickly got the ball back after throwing a double in Curry. Green then dishoned the ball to Looney, who finished with a dunk over Al Harford.
Kerr called it the biggest bucket of the night. But it was Karita who took them to the point where that shot turned into boxing.
“We take things from time to time that he does,” Thompson said. “But he has to go out there and put us on his back, that is, we have to help him on Monday.”
Charcoal got some help Friday from Thompson, who scored 18 points and dropped four 3-pointers; Andrew Wiggins, 17 points and 16 rebounds; And Jordan PoolAdded 14 points. Kevon LooneyThe first man out of the series in the series finished with 11 rebounds and a plus-21 net worth.
But Curry outscored the other Warriors openers 43-39. The 34-year-old is the oldest player to do so in the final after 35-year-old Michael Jordan in Game 6 against Jazz in 1998.
Green struggled again and did not put any substantial fingerprints in the game until he recovered late in the fourth. Kerr wanted to pull Green out of the game in aggressive possessions in the final five minutes of the game.
As Thompson said, the Warriors knew they had to help Curry. But that doesn’t mean they have to do it by sharing the burden of beating responsibilities.
“When a guy is on a roll like that, you get out of his way,” Thompson said.
Green added: “Try to do what you can to free him or help him to create his seats and go to his places. For us, we must constantly fill in. Wherever we can be, you have taken a shot, take it. … Everyone is forced to end the attack. If it’s with cuts, that’s smooth with your bass, then you’re letting him in. He’s doing what he’s doing. “
He said he knew Curry was going to play with an extra level of fire in Green Game 4, adding that he could tell by looking at Curry’s behavior in the days following their worst defeat two days ago.
Curry said he entered Game 4 knowing he wanted to take charge. He knew how quickly the pace of the final could change, and if he could make his team win in Boston it would be on their side.
“He’s going to come out with that kind of fire,” Green said. “He did, and we were all able to follow it.”
