Stephen Curry did not play in the fourth quarter – and did not need to.

The Golden State Warriors beat Boston Celtics 107-88 in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, 1-1 in the series. Curry’s 29 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals helped Golden State bounce back from a Game 1 defeat and take the East Series to the East Coast.

“They said we needed to play with frustration, well we did. It’s a good feeling to be back on track and now we’ve put it on the road,” Curry told ESPN’s Lisa Salters after the game.

The Warriors used a 35-point third quarter to seal Game 2. Golden State finished the quarter 16-2 with a final 4:17.

Jordan Poole nailed a 39-foot three-pointer to put Golden State in fourth place 87-64, which was more than the Warriors wanted.

Curry said that their third quarter in Game 2 was the same as in Game 1, where they played defensively better. He said hardening guys like Jason Tatum and Jaylen Brown would “take the rest of the game”.

“Our third quarter was great. We broke up enough … the fourth quarter was a little easier tonight.”

“He’s just on his own. He’s looking for different ways to influence the game on both sides of the floor,” Curry said. “Sometimes it appears on a stat sheet across the board. Sometimes you feel his energy, his vision and his passion and it gives us so much life.”
