Stephen Curry led the Golden State Warriors to tie up the series against Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the best-of-seven NBA Finals held at the TD Garden, Boston last Saturday (PH time), 107-97.

Despite having a foot injury from Game 3, Curry tallied his second Finals career-high of 43 points in 14-of-26 shooting with 7-of-14 from beyond the arc, along with 10 rebounds as the series shifts back to The Bay on Tuesday for Game 5.

"I felt like we just had to let everybody know that we were here tonight,” said Curry. “Whether that’s their crowd, their team, our team, whoever wants to see that energy and that fire, we feed off of that,” he added.

Both teams started the game with terrific showing on both ends of the floor, highlighted by Grant William's three-point shot to end the quarter, 27-28, in favor of the Celtics.

The Celtics continued to attack the paint in the second quarter led by Jayson Tatum to keep the Warriors at bay before halftime, 49-54.

But like they usually do throughout the series, Curry began to erupt in the third quarter with a couple of treys and helped GSW take the lead at the end of third quarter, 79-78.

Marcus Smart tried to stop the bleeding, but Curry kept on making ridiculous shots that pressured the Celtics' defense and eventually tied the series 2-2 as they head back to San Francisco for the next game, 107-97.

Curry also made NBA history as the first player to make 5+ three pointers in four consecutive Finals games.
