Stephen Curry has outmatched Jayson Tatum thus far

In moments, when everything matters, Curry is more unstoppable than Tatum.

Did the Celtics just throw away their championship window? Everyone was healthy, and the fouls were favoring the home court. So what happened? That explanation is pretty clear; this was the Stephen Curry game.

Nothing you can do but watch...

When you are a superstar, you can pick apart an outstanding defensive team on the road because sometimes it just doesn’t matter. Now the Celtics were far from their best in Game 4. They got swamped on the boards -- statistically speaking, it was the only massive difference in numbers between the two teams. And it was accurate when watching it -- Wiggins had a couple of clutch offensive rebounds. 

But cutting through all the crap, the Warriors had Stephen Curry, and that’s not the same this series as the Celtics having Jayson Tatum. Stephen Curry and his group are battle-tested - more than any three players since the Bill Russell days.

Jayson Tatum is not a pantheon guy. Jayson Tatum is not a superstar. Because when you only drop 23 points, going 8-23 from the field -- we know he had 12 points in game 1 -- shouldn't superstars be a little more consistent?

In moments, when everything matters, Curry is more unstoppable than Tatum. Watching defenders shrug to their coach like, ‘I don’t know what more I could do’? when Curry is draining these long shots, it looks the same as when Giannis is taking three steps from half-court and dunking from the free-throw line.

And when the fans are criticizing you louder than ever, it’s not a coincidence that Curry has his second-highest scoring finals game. Klay said how classless the fans were, but Curry let his actions do the speaking.
