It was nearly like he and Curry forgot what got their team where they are. However, the Warriors played historically bad in that 4th quarter and ended up giving up the lead and the game.
The Rockets snapped Golden State's record play-off home win streak at 16 games. Such is the nature of the NBA Playoffs, where momentum shifts as often as our White House staff.
During the pivotal road matchup Tuesday, Harden had three steals and two blocks, while stepping up on defense in multiple key moments in the fourth quarter.
The series victor will face either Cleveland or Boston in the NBA Finals starting May 31. "We know we can go get it back, so it's no panic".
Oddly enough, on the Warriors' next-to-last play in which Durant could have found a wide-open Thompson for a lay-up had he had his head up and eyes forward, he missed him, then passed to his hobbled teammate too late on the left wing.
Yet Green's Twitter-made follies would have been meaningless if the Warriors had been able to win or force overtime on the final possession. So, for all who have ignored the National Basketball Association season until now, you are officially caught up. Hopefully the Rockets can take care of business again at the Toyota Center on Wednesday night! So I saw Draymond trying to call it and I was hoping they'd give it to us, but we didn't get it.
"A lot of it was just talking to myself nearly like you've got to be your biggest fan sometimes", added Curry.
US Congress passes big rollback of post-financial crisis bank reforms
That's an estimated 85 percent of USA banks, according to data from the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The effort also got caught up in a standoff between the House and Senate, which had competing versions of the bill.
Wentz Mobile in Eagles First OTA
Wentz has not put a timetable on his return, but he has said his goal is to play in the season opener. I use it to feel a little more protected, and it's something now that I'm getting used to.
Consumer Reports isn't too impressed with the Tesla Model 3
Musk vowed to fix the issue, which the influential magazine said included long stopping distances . In these tests, the Model 3 sedan reportedly braked slower than a full-sized pickup truck.
Could this be the night that Curry, Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson finally elevated an altogether lackluster series with a duel for the ages against Chris Paul or James Harden? When Golden State threatened to run off to a 3-1 series lead, Houston was unbowed. These are three very different outcomes, which have very different trajectories - both in the next few weeks and the extended future of the sport.
Paul played poorly in Game 3, when he seemed to lack explosiveness, finishing with 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting as the top-seeded Rockets suffered the most lopsided playoff loss in franchise history. And if you don't think that matters to athletes, just ask Charles Barkley or Dan Marino.
Every time they leave Green open, alarm bells must ring for the Rockets, searching for Curry darting around on the court.
That, in a nutshell, is the appeal of sports. "It's the only thing we think about", he told ESPN last December.
Tuesday, they did. Now the Rockets control their fate.
Last week I wrote about James Harden and the turgid isolation offense of coach Mike D'Antoni dooming the Houston Rockets to another exit from the NBA Playoffs. But it's one game, and you've got to have that same type of energy and intentions and focus the next game. They did not score for the first five minutes, and had trouble getting good looks throughout.
