Current and former players praise the two-time Kia MVP after a signature performance.

The NBA Finals are now a best-of-3 series after Stephen Curry erupts for 43 points in Game 4.

In a demonstrative and dominating performance that was one of the best of his postseason career, Stephen Curry scored 43 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 107-97 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday night, sending the series back to San Francisco knotted at two games apiece.

Two nights after shaking off a foot injury in a Game 3 loss, the two-time Kia MVP stomped and shot his way to his third-highest scoring total in the postseason, adding 10 rebounds and making a pair of baskets during a 10-0 fourth-quarter run that turned a four-point Boston edge into a 100-94 Golden State lead. It was the second-most points he’s scored in the NBA Finals.

Present and former NBA players were in awe of the performance, lauding Curry during and after the victory on social media.
