Game 3 was the Stephen Curry show. Curry led all scorers with 40 points and also added five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block. Curry had 37 by the fourth quarter and made another 3 with about five and a half minutes left before he took to the bench for the rest of the game. Draymond Green and Klay Thompson added 17 points each to put the Warriors up 3-0 with a 115-80 win over the Rockets.
James Harden was held to 17 points on 3-16 shooting with 10 of his points coming from free throws, but it would have taken a better game from all the Rockets team members. Houston started off this game in a hole and it just kept getting deeper. The Warriors started the game going up 12 after the first quarter. The second quarter had a similar feel as Golden State went up 25 points by halftime. It was a lot of the same in the second half and Houston ended up getting blown out by 35.
Houston is going to have to play with a lot more passion if they're going to get back into this series. Kevin McHale thought his team "would come out with a little more juice." They're going to need to do something if they don't want to get swept.
In head to head matchups, the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Houston and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Houston and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
