Stephen Curry came out with guns blazing and never relented in Game 4 against the Boston Celtics. He hit every big shot necessary during key moments for the Golden State Warriors that kept them in the game and ultimately escaping TD Garden with the series tied at two games apiece.
Steph Curry poured in 43 huge points, his second highest total in his NBA Finals career. But the Warriors star isn't resting on his laurels one bit. He claims his team still has another gear to reach.
“It's crazy, because I still feel like we can play just a little bit better,” said Steph Curry during the postgame interview. “But to go on the road and get home-court advantage back, big for this group.”

Curry did the heavy lifting for Golden State, but the supporting cast did just enough to enable him to finish the job. While nobody else reached the 20-point plateau, Andrew Wiggins, Klay Thompson, and Jordan Poole all combined for 49 points and eight threes – roughly the equivalent of another Stephen Curry in the game.
Wiggins and Kevon Looney also combined for 27 rebounds, to help the Warriors win the battle on the boards after getting demolished on that end in Game 3.
“A lot of pride in our group. A lot of talk in over the last 48 hours about how we can get back into this series and win in this building. Finally figured out our fourth quarter to get some stops and execute on the other end.”
Steph Curry and the Warriors showed their championship resiliency in Game 4. Their core guys are no strangers to the big stage, which has helped the newcomers acclimate to the high-pressure conditions of the NBA Finals.
“Been here six times. I've got a lot of experience in staying composed, confident on what you can do. … We knew how big this game was, just like Game 2,” Curry concluded.
The NBA Finals has now been reduced to a best-of-three series. The Warriors host the Celtics in Game 5 on Monday night.
