Steve Kerr: Warriors bracing for 'incredibly difficult' Game 4 vs. Rockets

Steve Kerr: Warriors bracing for 'incredibly difficult' Game 4 vs. Rockets

As Curry soared, Oracle roared, and celebrations included a shimmy, but also one that wasn't as family friendly.

The Rockets lost to the Golden State Warriors 126-85, a blowout that saw Steph Curry score 35 points. "He said he would be all right". I had plenty of opportunities, I just couldn't knock it down. Then once the dam broke in the third quarter ... fans are just so happy when Steph scores. I've been doing it for a while. I won't let two tough games shooting keep me frustrated'. According to ESPN, this was the largest win in Warriors postseason history, the largest loss in Rockets postseason history and the largest loss in National Basketball Association postseason history by a team that won 65 plus games during the regular season. He finished with 10 points on 4-for-6 shooting, in addition to three assists and three rebounds, in the Warriors' 41-point victory in Game 3. Curry extended his NBA-record streak of playoff games with a made 3-pointer to 82 games.

'We're in the middle of a hell of a run, obviously, ' coach Steve Kerr said.

"That's what I expected to do", Curry said afterwards. "His three is similar to some people's dunks".

The Cavs came in wanting to play faster and be more physical with the younger Celtics, who were the aggressors in Games 1 and 2. They won the battle on the glass, 94-85, and played their signature tough defense, forcing 24 Cavaliers turnovers.

"That's what I expected to do, but just like my approach after every game is you don't get too high after highs, don't get too low after lows".

In the same quarter, Curry received the ball from Kevin Durant well beyond the 3-point line and launched a 30-footer over the outstretched arms of Chris Paul that tickled nothing but the net. "Don't mean to disappoint, but I've seen crazier from him".

Game 4 will be played at Oracle Arena on Tuesday night (May 22). The Warriors and Curry himself are confident that he can ride this momentum into the rest of the series and continue this elite level play. He struggled with his long-range shot again early but drove through the paint at every chance.

"I already know", he said later, with a smile, when asked about the cursing.
