The Golden State Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies in game 4 of the Western Conference semi-finals to take a 3-1 lead. Even though the Memphis Grizzlies were playing without Ja Morant, they nearly beat the Warriors. However, Stephen Curry‘s huge performance in the 4th quarter helped them narrowly run away with the win. Draymond Green believes that his 4th quarter performance was a statement for the doubters.
Memphis showed a lot of grit and heart in the game. They made some huge lineup changes that left the Warriors confused. One of them included getting Steven Adams to be the bully in the paint. And they almost capitalize on the Warriors’ small lineup. Stephen Curry just could not let it happen.
Draymond Green knows why Stephen Curry turned it up in the 4th quarter
Golden State had a huge advantage coming into this game. But you could not see that for the 1st of this game. The Warriors shot 20 3-pointers at the half and made just 2 of them. They only scored 38 points in half of a playoff game. Luckily for them, even after that awful half, they were only down 3.
The game was a defensive slugfest with more misses than makes. It was going to come down to who could get a lead and hold on to it. And in the 4th, Stephen Curry became the superstar he is known to be.
Stephen Curry stats game 2:
Good stats (except for %) for Curry, a lot of bad decisions with the passes, bad shot selection and he need to hit those wide open but we all know he going to bounce back🙌🐐

He scored 18 points in that quarter and spearheaded the comeback. He relied a little less on the 3 and more on the easy buckets. Something he should’ve realized earlier. But for Golden State, it was ‘All’s well that ends well’.
“Steph Curry showed you once again, for those that love to talk…why he’s Steph Curry. The way he took over that 4th quarter, in particular, the last 6 minutes of the 4th quarter…He showed you why he’s the only unanimous MVP in NBA history.”
Draymond Green, like others, have seen the slander across the name of Stephen Curry recently and believes that this should shut them all up. Can Curry do the same thing he did in the 4th quarter consistently throughout the playoffs?
