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.
