Curry doesn't show a lot of emotion during a game. Curry wore his heart on his sleeve in Golden State's win over Boston in the fourth game of the NBA finals.

Curry yelled at the Boston fans at the opposite end of the court after hitting back-to-back 3-pointers late in the first quarter.

We had to let everyone know that we were here. Whoever wants to see that energy and that fire, we feed off of that.

Curry finished with 43 points on 14-of-26 shooting, including seven 3-pointers, and 10 rebound and 4 assists. He was the fifth guard in NBA history to have at least 40 points and 10 rebound in a Finals game.

Draymond Green said it was incredible. We should be put on his back. Willed that we would win. It was a much-needed victory. We had to play a game. This organization has been able to ride him to success because he is one of the best players to ever play this game. It's amazing.

Curry wouldn't let the Warriors lose, according to Green. His game was described as "stunning". Klay Thompson said it was Curry's top performance in the finals.

Curry said he understood the importance of what he did Friday night, even though he didn't rank his performance. The outcome of Friday's game could either put the Warriors down in the series or force a third game.

Curry made sure it was the former.

"It means a lot because we had to win on the road and keep some life in the series, get home-court advantage back and try to create some traction in the series," Curry said.

Through the first three games of the series, Curry had averaged 33 points per game. He was only scoring three points in the fourth quarter, and that was his problem. He scored six points in the first three games.

He had 10 in the last frame. He had a career-high 24 points in the second half of a Finals game.

The fourth quarter is when the Warriors play their best basketball. Golden State became the first team in the past 50 seasons to win a Finals game by at least 10 points after trailing at some point in the game.

"We were helping each other out, playing together, playing aggressively on the defensive side, and just closing out." Not grabbing the rebound. There wasn't a single offensive rebound. Didn't get a second chance. That was large.

Green grabbed the offensive rebound after Thompson missed a 3-pointer that would have given the Warriors a three point lead. After the Celtics threw a double team at Curry, he quickly got the ball back. Green then gave the ball to Looney who dunked Horford.

It was the biggest bucket of the night, according to Kerr. Curry was the one who carried them to the point.

From time to time, the things he does are taken for granted. We need to help him out on Monday.

Curry got some help on Friday from Thompson, who scored 18 points and knocked down four 3-pointers, as well as Andrew and Jordan, who added 14 points. The man who came off of the bench for the first time this series had a plus-21 net rating.

Curry scored more points than the rest of the Warriors' starter. He is the oldest player to do that in a finals game since Michael Jordan in 1998.

Green didn't put a lot of fingerprints on the game until he rebounded in the fourth. Kerr pulled Green from the game on several occasions in the final five minutes of the game.

The Warriors know they have to assist Curry. They are not saying that they need to share the scoring responsibilities.

When a guy is on a roll, you just let him go.

You just try to help him get to his spots or open up some space for him to create and get to his spots, that's all you can do. We have to keep filling in where we can. Take it, you have a chance. If you allow him to be in the position to do what he does, then you allow him to be aggressive on the offensive side of the ball.

Green said he could tell Curry was going to play with more fire in Game 4 because he could see it in Curry's demeanor the day after their lackluster loss.

Curry knew he wanted to take over the game. He knew that if his team could win in Boston, the rest of the world would back them.

He was going to start a fire. We were all able to follow it.
