nba finals. we wondered if steph curry's injured foot would hamper him against the celtics by the end of game four last night. we wondered what planet steph curry came from because he displayed otherworldly skills 43 points carrying the warriors to victory tying the final series of two games apiece. you can tell he was heated up emotionally early on it's the first quarter three forcing a boston time that and watch him immediately run to the fans on the opposite end of the floor. they were taunted again. he gives it right back. you don't want to make steph curry angry because you won't like him when he's angry. a lot of people are saying this was steph's best finals performance ever, not him. i don't write my performances though. just win the game. you can want it so bad. you kind of get in your own way a little bit and everybody feels a little bit of pressure. can go to opposite way i wanted to try to. leverage that the you know in a positive direction for us. yeah, he wasn't letting us lose. that's just what it boils down
to we had somebody there and he was just making them. what he does, you know, we obviously have to do a better job of limiting that there's what it is and get another chance to get on monday. he's one of the best players in the world. he's been here before, you know, it's hard, but we never said it was supposed to be easy. so we just get ready for the next game. i said the heart on that man is incredible you know the things he does we kind of take for granted from time to time, but let's go out there and put us on his back and i mean we got to help them out on monday. speaking of monday. what a final series this has turned out to be the drama continues monday night game 5 chase center pregame at 5pm tip off at six all the highlights and interviews after the game all here exclusively on abc 7. i'd say a pretty good weekend to be a bay area sports fan. you got the warriors and the finals plus giants dodgers at oracle park. they got underway just a short time ago right now two nothing
