Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry hit back-to-back threes late in the first quarter — the second a step-back, impossibly deep triple over Jaylen Brown — and went ballistic after the second.

The two-time MVP ran alongside the Boston Celtics bench screaming and gesturing wildly toward the TD Garden crowd, repeatedly pointing to the floor while making it all the way down to the opposite baseline, before turning and banging on his chest. It was a level of emotion you don’t usually see from Curry — especially not in the first quarter — but maybe made some sense after a contentious Game 3 that ended with Warriors players, coaches and wives upset with Celtics fans.

Asked about the “F—K YOU DRAYMOND” chants following Game 3 on Wednesday, Curry paused for a bit, rubbing his chin. When he finally answered he didn’t seem emotional at all about the Boston crowd.

“Par for the course,” he said. “Every arena you get a little something, it’s been like that the whole playoffs, every round we’ve made he’s experienced it, no different tonight.”


But that emotion seemed to flow out in the first quarter, and then land directly in the laps of Celtics fans sitting under the Boston basket.

Curry finished with 12 points in the opening quarter (matched only by Boston’s Jayson Tatum), as the Dubs kept things close in the opening frame. Boston led by just one heading into the second quarter and took a 54-49 lead into the half.
