After struggling in Games 2 and 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals, Stephen Curry broke out in a big way in Game 4 with 33 points (11/22, 4/9 3pt.), 8 rebounds and five assists. Simply put, he was awesome tonight, the MVP version of Steph that ran rampant throughout the league during the regular season.
In fact, Steph was so awesome, even a Grizzlies fan couldn’t help but offer some DAP after Curry drew a foul in transition. A quick note about this: It’s not fair-weather fandom. If the MVP (and one of the most likable players in the league), who is having an MVP performance, just happens to come close enough to high-five, 99.9 percent of fans are going to take that chance. It’s what any fan of any sport would do.
Steph’s terrific night led the way for the Warriors, who took Game 4 with a decisive 101-84 victory.
