For  days, Golden State forward Draymond Green saw it in his teammate Stephen Curry. The fire Curry plays with isn’t usually apparent to outsiders, but Green sensed that it was simmering within.

Their team was down in the N.B.A. finals, 2-1, and Curry was not going to let them lose Game 4.

On Friday night everybody else saw that emotion, too.

After one of his  first-quarter 3-pointers, Curry screamed into the crowd full of Boston Celtics enthusiasts who had showed up early to hound him and his teammates. 

There was a long manner to go in the game, one of the finest of his illustrious career, however he shouted to send a message.

On Friday night in the front of a hostile crowd in Boston, Golden State evened its series with the Celtics, 2-2, and regained home-court advantage. Golden State won, 107-97.

Curry scored 43 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, turning into only the third Warriors player to have at least 40 points and 10 rebounds in an N.B.A. finals game 

Rick Barry did so in 1967, and Kevin Durant did in 2018. Curry, Michael Jordan and LeBron James are the only players 34 and older to score forty or more points in an N.B.A. finals game.

As Golden State stretched its lead in the final minutes of Game 4, Celtics fans began to leave.
