Warriors Blow Up Rockets to Take Series Lead

Adjust Comment Print

The Houston Rockets had a night to forget as they suffered a 41-point humiliation at the hands of the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

"You go to certain arenas and a guy gets a dunk and it's absurd", stated Green.

Game 4 is scheduled for Tuesday night, also in Oakland.

Few loved this new side of Steph Curry more than teammate Kevin Durant.

The reigning defensive player of the year finished the game with 10 points, 17 rebounds and 6 assists. "That's it. When we defend at that level and take care of the ball, we're usually in pretty good shape". I'd be remiss not to mention, however, that Warriors owner Joe Lacob has already gone on record with 95.7 The Game, saying the team remains open to the possibility of buying an additional second round pick.

At various points in the game, head coach Mike D'Antoni couldn't hide his anger at the way his team was playing. "Again, we have short memories, have to".

The Rockets led by as many as four points in the first quarter and trailed just 54-43 at halftime before Curry nearly single-handedly left them in the dust in the third period.

While speaking to reporters on Monday, Durant needed just two words to offer his endorsement of Curry's in-game cursing.

About a minute later, Curry used a screen to get James Harden to switch onto him and he crossed him over and nailed a step-back contested triple. "Because I find myself in those type of isolation situations a lot with how they guard, so you can make plays and be ready for those type of one-on-one situations". He hit 13 of 23 shots overall.

Good on Curry for trying to keep his on-court vocabulary clean.

Andre Iguodala is doubtful for Game 4 with a left knee contusion.
