The Rockets suffered a 41-point blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals on Sunday, their worst playoff loss in franchise history. I mean obviously it felt good and you want to use that energy to show your team-mates that you're here, you're with them, get the crowd into it. I think it's just that Steph gets so many accolades that people are trying to find things that are wrong with him. 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 flawless 15-0 record.
The Rockets must win at least one game in Oakland if they are to win the series and it really has to come in Game 4 as overturning a 3-1 deficit would be an improbable task.
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.
Take, for instance, the fact that the Warriors have lost four playoffs games over the last two years and that the Rockets now need to beat them three out of the next four games. "We weren't as aggressive as we needed to be".
During Game 3 of the series against the Rockets, the Warriors star went off and let his emotions take over which is normal for a game of that magnitude.
"A lot of it was just talking to myself, nearly like you've got to be your biggest fan sometimes". They may want to consider going back to some good old fashioned layup drills on Monday ahead of game four. "We got it handed to us", Kerr said.
Despite his struggles from deep, Curry had plenty of success getting to and finishing around the rim, even against the length of Clint Capela, and orchestrating Golden State's offense so that others could more easily make their impact. You know what drives me insane? They were running their screens and all that stuff like that.
"Harden, who finished with a team-high 20 points and nine assists, told reporters "[D'Antoni is] right. I've now seen the Warriors' best.
Houston seemed to revert to its slow, methodical play of game one when they weren't dribbling the ball off their own feet. As a result, the Rockets committed 19 turnovers, their most during the 2018 postseason.
