The Golden State Warriors knew they would have a slim chance to win another NBA title if they lost Game 4 in the finals series against the Celtics on Friday night. So their superstar guard Stephen Curry made sure they don’t.

Despite playing bruised after Al Horford landed on his leg in Game 3, Curry exploded for 43 points to give the Warriors a 107-97 win. He made seven 3-pointers while also finishing the night with 10 rebounds and four assists.

“It means everything knowing the sense of urgency we had to have tonight to win on the road and keep some life in the series, get the home-court advantage back and try to create some momentum our way,” Curry said after the game.

Curry had help from his Splash Brother Klay Thompson, who scored 18 on the night, while Andrew Wiggins added 17 and grabbed 16 rebounds.

Boston was led by Jayson Tatum, who scored 23 points and added 11 rebounds and six assists. Jaylen Brown scored 21 points, while Marcus Smart had 18.

Golden State’s win meant that the series is now tied 2-2 and that the Warriors once again have the home-court advantage. The next game is scheduled for Monday night at Chase Center.
