Fired-up Curry leads Warriors' rout

Game 4 is Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.

Houston is making sure not to get too high from its impressive result.

Speaking to ESPN, Curry said: "I blacked out".

"He's been awesome and he's making plays", Curry said of Durant when asked about his performances in the playoffs. "That's how it is in the playoffs", Paul said. "It's a message I've heard before".

"Every time he comes to a game since he's been with the Warriors, we have won that game and sold it out, too, so we'd like to keep that going".

We know the 3-pointer has changed basketball, and made rapid comebacks much more likely ... but the problem is everyone shoots 3-pointers so well, there isn't a massive advantage there for anyone except the team with three of the best 10 shooters in the NBA.

Of riding the emotion with his shot - after so many questions about his perceived struggles so far this series - Curry noted, "You've got to be your biggest fan sometimes".

Golden State, which realized it wouldn't go a record 16-1 like last postseason's remarkable run to a second title in three years, responded from defeats in the first round to San Antonio and then against the Pelicans in the Western Conference semifinals.

"To me, Golden State has all the pressure", said D'Antoni, according to Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post. "Played soft, actually. I mean, you can't do that with these guys".

In other words, Curry blamed himself for the loss. We've seen the Rockets drop 45 in a quarter, so for them only scoring 42 points in the second half, it's definitely eye-opening.

However, it was the defense and the lack of effort that killed the Rockets, who allowed the Warriors to shoot 52.2 percent from the floor and 40.6 percent from deep. "You can look at it any way you want ... but it didn't matter who we had out there tonight, we got beat". "It got Oracle pretty fired up and that's a rare occurrence".

The video of those 15 turnovers explains numerous important developments in the series, from Houston more aggressively helping off certain Warriors to some unusual miscommunication to refereeing.

"We always talk about having a short memory, especially in bad times, but you have to have a short memory also in good times". "He's aggressive and we need to feed off that focus and determination".

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