Steph Curry Set a Record While Helping the Warriors Tie Series

Steph Curry has had numerous memorable games throughout his storied career. Famously, in one 2014 matchup against the Jazz, Curry scored nearly half his team’s points on the way to a 95-90 win.

In a 2016 game against the Thunder, he knocked down an astonishing 12 three-pointers, scoring 46 points in the process.

But last night, even by his incredible standards, Curry was on another level.

The Warriors faced what amounted to a must-win game to avoid going down 3-1 in the series. They were dealing with a hostile environment created by a raucous Boston crowd, AND Curry was coming off a leg injury in Game 3. Even with all those challenges, he delivered again.

Curry set records — 43 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, and 7 threes, to mark the first time in NBA history those numbers had been reached in a Finals game.

Not only did he get the Warriors back home for Game 5 with the series tied, but he also did it in a historic fashion.

It’s easy to forget how dominant Curry can be when he’s at his best. But Friday night was a reminder that even at age 34, when he has to, he can still take over a game.
