The 2022 NBA Finals are all tied up at two wins apiece, as Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors pulled away from the Boston Celtics late to win Game 4 by a 107-97 final at TD Garden Friday night. Curry led all scorers with 43 points, powering Golden State to a much-needed series tie.
After three games of big leads and wild swings, Game 4 was the tightest, most competitive 48 minutes of the series. Neither team led by more than seven points until the final minute, so the game essentially boiled down to the very end. That belonged to Curry, who scored 10 of his 43 within the final four minutes of regulation. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, meanwhile, didn’t score over the last 7:32. The Celtics as a team made just one basket in the final five minutes.
Tatum and Brown totaled 23 and 21 points, respectively, before coming up short in the fourth. Tatum also pulled down 11 rebounds, dished out six assists, and blocked three shots. Robert Williams had two blocks of his own, to go with seven points, 12 rebounds, and four assists.
The Warriors kept this one closer than Game 3 with a much-improved game around the rim. The Warriors finished with a 38-32 advantage at points in the paint and 55-42 in rebounds.
