The Golden State Warriors didn’t begin the 2022 NBA Finals on the right foot, blowing a double-digit lead against the Boston Celtics in the fourth quarter of Game 1. However, they bounced back quickly.
The Dubs took care of business on Sunday night, taking a huge lead in the third quarter and sealing the victory this time. But once again, it was Stephen Curry who took all the limelight.
Steph, who had previously posted 34 points in the opening game of the Finals, didn’t slow down on Game 2 by recording a game-high 29 points. Ahead of the third game of the series, Curry understands this is the version of himself the Warriors need right now.

“I think this year, there’s definitely a need for me to be aggressive throughout the game, to create, draw attention, get shots up and just continue to apply pressure,” Curry said, via Doric Sam of Bleacher Report.
“Obviously, these first two games, it’s gone well. I don’t know what it will look like on the road. The rest of the series, it’s just always about being confident with the ball in my hands to make plays.”
Things are still wide open after Sunday’s game, with one victory apiece. The Warriors take on the Celtics on Wednesday night to kick off a two-game stand in Boston.
