Steph Curry hasn’t been playing great, but he hasn’t been playing terribly. He totaled 22 points in Game 4 which is consistent in the way he has been playing. Instead of coming out of halftime hot, he spread his point pretty evenly, but was never a huge factor in the game. This pattern has shown in the last three games of the series.
In the first quarter, he totaled 6 points and 3 assists and then added just 2 points in the second quarter to total 8 for the half. He had 7 points each in the third and fourth quarters and finished at 8-17 and 4-7 from behind the 3 point line.

Here are his stats for the first three games of the series:
Although Steph Curry’s overall performance has been considered less than mediocre during Games 2 and 3 of the 2015 NBA Finals, his ability to come back in the last quarters have been uncanny. In Game 3, he managed to score 17 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter.
The conclusion has been that Cleveland’s Dellavedova has been pressuring him so hard that he can’t get many shots in, which could be the case since he went 15 whole minutes in Game 3 without shooting a single basket and converted just 5 of 12 shots next to his 5 of 6 shots when he was guarded by another player on the Cavaliers.
Another troubling stat is his 4-20 showing from behind the three point line in Games 2-3.
