Warriors Blow Up Rockets to Take Series Lead

Posted May 22, 2018

Stephen Curry says he "blacked out" when he turned to the crowd after a layup, removed his mouthpiece and screamed "This is my (expletive) house" during the Golden State Warriors' 126-85 blowout win over the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Sunday in Oakland, Calif. "I won't let two tough games shooting keep me frustrated". The rousing effect of the third quarter spilled over to the fourth, when the Warriors erased all hope of a Houston comeback.

Golden State has won an National Basketball Association record-tying 15 straight postseason home games, matching the Chicago Bulls' mark from April 27, 1990-May 21, 1991.

McKillop shared some thoughts on Curry's performance Sunday night, as well as on the Golden State-Houston NBA playoff series and the way Curry is responding to Houston attacking him on defense.

"We've already graded [the Warriors] a victor", Golden Nugget sportsbook manager Aaron Kessler said before the start of the Western Conference Finals.

Curry also delivered a different message: What slump?

"I only need one, that's all I need", Curry said.

Looking in on three days in a vacuum, it's a relatively short time to the average person. You go to certain arenas and a guy gets a dunk it's just absurd. That's how his three ball is.... Steph, Draymond, Andre (Iguodala) and Klay (Thompson), those are guys who have been here for a while, so then you add KD to that, a guy who's seen everything in the playoffs. Then, theoretically braced for Golden State's trademark third-quarter pushes, Houston immediately conceded a 10-0 run out of halftime. I expect both of them to get at Oracle Arena hours before the game and put up hundreds of shots to rediscover their strokes.

Curry hit a baseline three-pointer at the 9:02 mark of the first but missed his next five threes before going 4 for 5 in the second half.

Particularly bad was James Harden's matador defense, especially on one play where he found himself getting sauced up by Golden State guard Shaun Livingston on a cross/behind the back move. He is now 7 of 25 from long range-he made one in each of the first two games.

"He didn't create those", Kerr said. They were slower than usual in getting sets up, initiating the offense, and finishing around the rim.

"Offensively, we didn't have any thrust, and they exploited it", Harden said.
