While a lot has been said about Stephen Curry's shortcomings as a player, Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics were reminded of his greatness in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Now, Brown took the time to give the Golden State Warriors star the respect he deserves.

On Sunday ahead of Game 5 in San Francisco, Brown heaped praise on Curry and emphasized how good the Warriors sharpshooter is in case people have forgotten about what he can do. The Celtics have struggled to find a way to contain the superstar guard, but that's not a knock on their defense but rather a testament to how special Steph is.

“Steph Curry is really good if you guys haven’t noticed,” Brown said, per Jay King of The Athletic.

With Stephen Curry's 43 points on top of 10 rebounds and four assists in Game 3 still fresh, surely everyone is aware of that fact.

For Jaylen Brown and the Celtics, though, that is an important focus as they head to the crucial showdown on Monday. Curry will definitely be a pivotal player for the Warriors once again, and if Boston wants to beat them, they have to at least slow down the 34-year-old and limit his options offensively.

Curry has been unstoppable so far, averaging 34.3 points through four games in the NBA Finals. Clearly, the Celtics must make a big adjustment to make sure he doesn't get as hot as he did the last time out.
