As the third quarter was coming to an end, Steph made a three-pointer at 27 feet to give an advantage to the Warriors. However, later the Warriors were vanquished 116-100 by the Celtics.
Later things got even more threatening for the Warriors when Curry made a dive to the floor in a grapple for an open ball with Al Horford of Boston who rolled onto Curry’s foot when there were just four minutes of the game left.
Despite being in terrible pain, the Warriors star played for two more minutes before leaving the court.
Curry showed that he was the only Golden State player who could contest the Celtics’ powerful defense which exhibited its dominance late on, preserving Golden State to 11 points in the fourth quarter.
Wednesday he scored 31 points, becoming the top scorer, and Golden State will be desiring him to recuperate in time for Game 4. He claims he is naturally in some pain but he’ll eventually be alright. He said he didn’t feel like he would miss a game and that he would take advantage of the following 48 hours to prepare.
Golden State got the lead early with the aid of two three-pointers by Jaylen Brown — who brought the Celtics to lead in the first quarter. Boston got an advantage of a total of 15 points and the Celtics and in the second quarter, they made a 33-22 lead.
The Warriors made just 8-of-23 in the first, and they had apparent problems with their defense, which allowed numerous fouls, three called on Curry in the first half among them. But, as it happened before this season, Golden State reassembled in the third quarter and made a 14-3 run, which became enough to take the lead away from the Celtics.
The third quarter of the second game brought success for the Dubs, but this time the Celtics managed to retaliate.
After the game, Horford said he had felt like their team remained balanced in those moments, and that earlier that year things could have gotten worse fast, but they just managed to remain concentrated and continued to play.
Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart, and Brown all made over 20 points, five rebounds, and five assists making them the first three players on the same team to accomplish this in an NBA Finals game since the Los Angeles Lakers’ 1984 triad of Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Michael Cooper — a succession which, by coincidence, resulted in a seven-game Celtics victory.
Could the current NBA Finals repeat the 1984 outcome? We will find out very soon.
