Using his dazzling display, Stephen Curry cemented his case as one of the greatest in the last 2022 NBA Finals’ triumph over the Golden State Warriors, and his clutch performance in Game 4 served as the stepping stone to realizing that his title dream for the fourth time in eight years is legit.

From the perspective of Grant Williams, Curry going nuclear in Game 4 against him and the Boston Celtics are just considerably unreal in hindsight as they thought they were just a few moments away from a convincing series margin.

“We get to the Finals, we’re up 2-1,” said Williams upon appearing in Theo Pinson’s “Run Your Race” podcast. “We’re like, ‘Aw sh—, it’s our time. We about to go get it.’ Game 4 we’re leading the entire way. We’re like, ‘We get 3-1, we might go back to Golden State and win this.’ 

“Man, Charlotte, North Carolina boys. That man [Curry] was different. Different, bro.”

Facing a 2-1 edge on the first three games of the championship set, Curry dusted off the pressure with the raucous TD Garden crowd exploding against them. He poured a massive 43-point output – leading the Warriors to a 28-19 scoring board for the final period and knotted the series against the C’s in a shocker.

And the rest was just history. The Dubs took the emphatic Game 5 on their home floor in San Francisco and closed out Game 6 of the title tilt back in Boston to finally revive their dynastic status atop the NBA world. Curry, for his part, was honored for his first-ever Finals MVP upon tallying the series-high 31.2 markers to go with 6.0 boards, 5.0 dimes, 2.0 steals, and 43.7 percent efficiency from downtown.

“It’s like one of those things where I look back at it and I’m like, ‘He’s tough,’” Williams added.

With Williams now at the West side as the newest member of the Dallas Mavericks, he can only expect to meet Curry and the Warriors more than twice during the regular season in contrast to his time in the Celtics. As such, he can only hope that with Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, he’ll be able to draw his very own revenge to even up with the future Hall of Famer.
