Curry Drops 43 As Warriors Get Even With Celtics

Jonathan Grant | June 11th, 2022

It’s not always easy to pinpoint when a team is in a ‘must-win’ position. The Golden State Warriors weren’t in one of those on Friday night as they took on the Celtics in Boston, but it was pretty close to being one of those situations. Down 2-1 and on the road, they did not want to leave and head back home in a 3-1 hole.

Steph Curry and co. ensured that didn’t happen as they ran out of town with a 107-97 victory that evens the series back up at two games apiece and also gives them home-court advantage back again. Curry was phenomenal in this showing, scoring 43 points in all while also grabbing 10 rebounds to record a double-double. He made seven three-pointers in the display, too, helping set the tone that it was going to be his and his team’s night. In addition to Curry’s showing, Andrew Wiggins’ numbers also jump off the page as he put up 17 points while also racking up 16 rebounds. Jayson Tatum led the way for Boston with 23 points and 11 boards, but he shot just 8-23 from the field as his team fell on their home floor. Game 5 takes place on Monday back in San Francisco, and it could have a big say in which way the Finals ultimately go.
