As the announcer said though, the Dubs are great in the third quarter so plenty of time for them to come back!

Curry looks terrible out there though, he looks slower and weaker and not his usual explosive self.

Or maybe they can have Bron coming off the bench for the Dubs next year!

That would for sure make them a superior team.

Yeah Houston is up 19 but with all the shooters the warriors have they can come back in a 10 seconds. This game is nowhere near over

I dunno...Steph looks really off tonight and they’re getting zero help off the bench.

Some people are blaming it on him being hurt which is a bunch of BS. If he is hurt then he shouldn't be in the game

They sure could use him.

This game's over.

The Dubs came into this game cocky and thought the Rockets would be soft and just lay over. They thought wrong and committed turnover after turnover, lack of effort on defense and were beaten at their own game by the Rockets. What I feared came true, complacency and hubris was their own undoing. But that's not to make light of the intensity and heart the Rockets showed. And the other Rockets stepped up especially Gordon, he was making all those shots he missed last game.

One ominous thing though was that Paul seemed to have injured his achilles and has ice wrapped around it now.

Golden State getting too cocky really cost them. You can't do that against anyone, especially a team like the Rockets. Turnovers and sleeping on defense really killed any hope of them winning tonight. Disgrace effort, to say the least.

The Warriors had better bounce back in Oakland. How they played tonight was just downright unacceptable.

Totally agree.

There was one graphic they had early in the game that was pretty telling. In game 1, Harden had something like 550 dribbles, more than Curry, Thompson, and Durant combined.

Tonight, Houston moved the ball well without a lot of that Harden iso stuff which can really kill the flow of Houston's offense. It was a great team effort all around.

Did anyone catch this statement by Marv Albert in the closing seconds of the game?


"The Rockets have Regained Home Court"
