SAN FRANCISCO – If the Celtics had any expectations that Stephen Curry had misplaced a step or wasn’t as artful circling around screens or had lostperhaps the rhythm or distance on his jumper,these assertions have beenformallyeradicated after about 5 minutes when one of manybiggest shooters all time had already swished three 3–pointers.
The Celtics have been headed to be the most recent victims of Curry’s brilliance after he tallied 17 points within the opening quarter and the Warriors raced to an 11-point lead Tuesday on the Chase Heart.
Two issues then occurred. Golden State coach Steve Kerr sat Curry for the primary 6:05 of the second interval, permitting the Celtics to make a run. And so they made essential defensive adjustments when he did return to the game.
