The Warriors, as expected, came back with a vengeance. They won this game 107-97, aided by Steph Curry’s 43 burger. Speaking of Curry, the man is having one of the most productive final’s appearances in recent memory. These games just keep getting better and better as the series goes on. This is the Celtics vs. Warriors Game 4 Recap.
Steph Curry Performance
Speaking of players that are good at basketball, this guy is showing fans everywhere that he is still one of the elite players in the NBA. Chef Curry put up an amazing 43 points, ten boards, four dimes, and five turnovers on 14/26 from the field, 7/14 from three and 8/9 from the line. He is averaging 34.3 points, 6.3 boards, 3.8 assists, two steals, and three turnovers a game on an insane 50% from the field, 49% from three and 86% from the line. Curry is shooting it with such high efficiency that it’s actually pretty amazing to watch. Here’s a fun fact: he is shooting a higher 3-pt FG % than Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart, and Jaylen Brown are shooting from the field in general. Curry is doing everything he can possibly do.
Klay Thompson Performance
Thompson had 18 points, two boards, one assist, one steal, two blocks, and just one turnover on 7/17 from the field and 4/10 from the three point line. Thompson hasn’t been averaging the best numbers in this years finals: 17.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, two assists, one steal, 0.8 blocks, and 0.8 turnovers a game. However, what’s more worrisome is his efficiency. He’s shooting just 35.8% from the field and 34% from the three point line. Thompson, as said in many articles before, is coming off some of the biggest career-altering injuries. The rust is still there, but the fact that the last time he played was in the finals in 2019. It’s a very nice comeback story, but he’ll get it figured out in the future. He’s still one of the best shooters in history after all.
Draymond Green Performance
Green is having a very mediocre finals series thus far. This time was no different as he put up just two points, nine boards, eight assists, four steals, and two turnovers on 1/7 from the field and 0/2 from three. It’s a prototypical line from him, but the shooting has been dreadful this year. In these finals, Green is averaging 4.3 points, 7.3 boards, 5.8 dimes, 1.8 swipes, 0.5 blocks a game, and two turnovers a game on just 23% from the field, 0% from the three point line and just 50% from the line. The playmaking and rebounding are good to see and he’s still playing his fantastic defense, but something just doesn’t seem right with him. Robert Williams must have his number this series.
Andrew Wiggins Performance
Wiggins had himself a nice game. He had 17 points, 16 boards, two assists, one steal, and two turnovers on 7/17 from the field, 2/6 from the three point line and 1/2 from the line. Wiggins is having a very steady finals run as he is averaging 16.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, one steal, 1.3 blocks, and two turnovers a game on 43% from the field, 32% from three and 70% from the line. He may have himself a ring at the end of this run if he’s able to keep it up. He really went from the Timberwolves to being a third option on the championship-driven Warriors. What a turn of events for the former number one overall pick.
