So it wasn’t a surprise when Curry modified into once the toast of NBA Twitter after the contest:
The Warriors necessary every bucket from Steph, with Draymond Inexperienced struggling mightily on offense once once more (two parts on 1-of-7 shooting) and the duo of Andrew Wiggins and Klay Thompson combining for 34 parts but on an inconsistent 14-of-34 shooting.
There were echoes of Game 1, albeit in reverse, in Game 4. The Warriors closed the sport on a 17-3 bustle, paying homage to Boston’s 40-16 fourth quarter in the outlet salvo of this sequence.
On Friday, the Celtics necessary more from Jayson Tatum (23 parts, 11 rebounds, six assists), who shot true 8-of-23 from the discipline. Jaylen Brown (21 parts), Marcus Dapper (18 parts) and Derrick White (16 parts off the bench) tried to seize up the slack, but no one can also retain up with Curry.
Golden Disclose’s majestic point guard proved, definitively, that he is the appropriate participant in this sequence. That previously elusive Finals MVP can also be his soon ample.
