The Boston Celtics had a golden opportunity to go up 3-1 in the 2022 NBA Finals but Stephen Curry showed why he is one of the all-time greats with a 43 point outburst Friday night.
Former Duke star Jayson Tatum has been widely hailed as a rising superstar and getting to the Finals to an extent validates that.

And some guys never get there. Reggie Miller was a brilliant player for the Indiana Pacers and clearly had a huge clutch instinct.
