NBA Finals: Stephen Curry helps Golden State Warriors level series with Boston Celtics
Stephen Curry scored 43 points after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics 107-97 and reached the final 2-2.
Boston led 94-90 five minutes ago, but 10 straight points helped the Warriors win.
Curry scored seven threes in 14 attempts and appeared unaffected by a left-foot injury in the third game of his seven-game winning streak.
“I’m not judging my performance,” Curry said. “I just want to win the game.”
“I don’t think about [a leg] most of the time. Mentally it doesn’t take up much space. I feel like I can do whatever I want on the pitch.”
Klay Thompson had 18 points and teammate Andrew Wiggins had 17 points and 16 rebounds for the Warriors.
Curry averaged 34.3 points and made 25 of 51 threes in the series.
“We gave Stephen a lot of breaks,” Thompson said. “When it comes to his five games, we have to help him. It’s ridiculous to ask him to score 43 points a night.
“Seeing him do it is special. He does it so much that you think it’s natural. But I’m as curious as the rest of the audience. It seems easy.”
Meanwhile, Jason Taitum had 23 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and three field goals for the Celtics.
“You have to give them credit,” he said. “They made some big hits.”
“Obviously we feel we are putting ourselves in a position to win games and there are a lot of things we wish we would have done differently.”
Game 5 of the series will take place in San Francisco on Monday night (2:00 GMT on Tuesday).
