Stephen Curry's mom grounded the Warriors star for his explicit celebration

Film Breakdown Rockets having success attacking weak link and forcing Warriors to send help

Golden State earned a 126-85 win over Houston in Game 3 to go up 2-1 in the Western Conference Finals. "Played soft, actually. I mean, you can't do that with these guys". Houston got huge efforts from its role players, as Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker, and Trevor Ariza all had excellent shooting nights to provide support for Chris Paul and James Harden. Each one of those losses has come in a different series, and none of them occurred in Oakland, California, where Durant and the Warriors have a ideal 15-0 record.

You would think the Rockets had never made a layup before after all the missed shots at the basket on Sunday night. But now they are down 2-1 with Tuesday's Game 4 at Oracle Arena, where Curry and the Warriors are undefeated in the playoffs since 2016.

The good news on Sunday for Houstonians is that the Astros beat the Indians to take that series 2-1 behind Lance McCullers's gem (5 ideal innings and only 1 hit through 7 with 8 strikeouts) and Brian McCann's McCanonball two-run homer.

It was also a classic showing from the Warriors, whose third-quarter margin in the playoffs is up to 77-points through 13 games.

"It's just one thing led to another", D'Antoni said, per ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

The small forward has top-scored for the Warriors in both games of the Western Conference Finals series against the Houston Rockets which is tied at 1-1 as he strives to claim back-to-back titles.

That rain will fall on already saturated ground and swollen rivers, streams and creeks which could lead to more flash flooding. Low-lying and poor drainage flooding will be the most common type of flooding to develop.

Additionally, it would put a lot of pressure on a Warriors team that hasn't seen a lot of close calls in the past few years. "He's aggressive and we need to feed off that focus and determination. But, you know, you just can't allow it to happen". Brandon Ingram and Julius [Randle].We are the best, just not right now!

Green was not shocked by Curry's explosion because he expects more to come. I've now seen the Warriors' best. "They came out and played a great game and got everybody going", Kerr told USA Today's Matt Eppers.

"Yeah, it's 22-22 right there in the first (quarter), and then it went to 31-22 (to finish the period)", said Paul, who hit just five of 16 shots and had a minus-18 rating.

To their credit, the Rockets quelled Golden State's initial third-quarter run with a 10-2 response, but they could only hold off the attack for so long.

He staggered Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry - keeping at least one on the floor for most of the game. That summed up a 19-turnover performance for the Rockets, who had been pretty good at protecting the ball prior to Sunday night.
