Steph Curry and his team were not going to take their foot off the gas this time – and even more than that, they made sure their third-quarter run was terminal for the Boston Celtics.

They led by a dozen in Game 1, going into the 4th quarter before losing the game by a dozen. 

 In Game 2 on Sunday night, Steph Curry put in another inspired performance – this time aided by his teammates to a much greater extent – and they completed a 107-88 blowout win to level the series.

Steph Curry finished with 29 points, six rebounds, four assists, and three steals on plus-24 in a game that saw him and the stars sitting for most of the fourth quarter, which ended up as garbage time.

Steph Curry Kept The Celtics In Check

Despite Boston shooting more than 50 percent from beyond the arc in the first half, the hosts took a two-point lead into the break, courtesy of Curry beating the buzzer stylishly just before the half. By the end of the game, that percentage had dropped to just over 40.

The Celtics were propelled by some big scoring early on from The Jays, Jayson Tatum scored 13 points in the first – more than he managed in the whole of Game 1 – and Jaylen Brown also started with a 13-point first quarter but slowed down quickly thereafter and finished with only 17 points. Tatum went 6-of-9 from 3-point land and totaled 28 on a better scoring night for the All-NBA first-teamer.

Tatum also claimed the distinction of becoming the youngest Celtics player to record 500-or-more points in a single postseason, previously held by Larry Bird in 1984 (when he was 27 years old, Tatum is 24). That won’t matter to him right now though.
