Stephen Curry has declared he will play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals despite suffering an unspecified injury late in Wednesday’s Game 3 loss to the Boston Celtics.

Curry’s Golden State Warriors went down 116-100 to the Celtics at the TD Garden on Wednesday, with the two-time MVP injured after Al Horford rolled on his leg late in the game.

The Warriors point guard was floored for several minutes, writhing in pain and limped off the court, but declared he would not miss Friday’s Game 4 with his side 2-1 down in the series.

“I’m going to play, that’s all I know right now,” Curry told reporters.

On his recovery from Game 3, he added: “(I got) about 10 hours of sleep, a couple dunks in the ice bucket and that’s about it for now.

“Then take advantage of today and tomorrow to get completely ready for the game. Get as much recovery and healing as possible and understand how important Game 4 is.

“I’m excited about the opportunity.”

Curry scored 31 points for Golden State with six three-pointers in Wednesday’s defeat where the Celtics stormed home with a 23-11 fourth quarter.

The Celtics once again had a better all-round scoring contribution from Jaylen Brown (27 points), Jayson Tatum (26 points) and Marcus Smart (24 points).

Celtics coach Ime Udoka also praised Robert Williams III for his defensive game, with 10 rebounds, three steals and four blocks.
