Down two games to one in the 2015 NBA Finals, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors responded in a big way tonight in Game 4.

1authorrob3 - NBA Finals: Curry, Warriors Respond With Huge Game 4 EffortThe overall feel in Game 4 of the 2015 NBA Finals was quite different as compared to the first three.

Actually, this feel didn’t begin until after the Cleveland Cavaliers jumped out to an early, football-like 7-0 lead.

Nevertheless, from that moment on it was all Warriors.

Scoring 31 points in the first quarter, Golden State shot the lights out. For the game, they hit for 46.8 percent of their shots.

More importantly, Curry’s squad played with the desperation, energy and toughness that was needed to respond to the Cavs previous effort.

It started with a hard Andrew Bogut foul as he sent LeBron James into a camera, cutting his head.

The closest the Cavs got in the second-half was when they cut the lead to three midway through the third-quarter.

James finished with only seven points on only 7-22 shooting from the field. J.R. Smith, Matthew Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert all combined for a nightmare night (7 for 35).

Curry, on the other hand, went for 22 on 8 of 17 shooting, including four three-pointers. The real star of the night was Andre Iguodala, as he not only shut down James, but received the start and finished with 22 points and eight rebounds.

Game 5 is slated for Sunday night back at Oracle.
