Golden State Warriors
The defending champions has been terrific all throughout the game as they bounced back to beat the Houston Rockets to a 126-85 home victory and regain the series lead. In fact, the 41-point margin of win was the largest in franchise postseason history. Thanks to Stephen Curry’s wild performance. The two-time MVP finished the game with 35 points, including the 18 points he scored in the third quarter. Meanwhile, the team announced that Andre Iguodala will be doubtful for tomorrow’s game after he sustained a left leg contusion in Game 3.
Following their largest margin of defeat, the Rockets needs to be better not only in offense but defensively if they want to win Game 4 against Golden State. During their Game 3 performance, the team played to what Houston coach Mike D’Antoni described as ‘soft’. In fact, despite James Harden’s 20-point, nine assists and five rebounds performances, he admitted that they were not as aggressive as they needed to be. Moving forward, it’s going to be a crucial game for the team tomorrow.
Leading the series to 2-1, there’s no doubt that the pressure is now on the side of the Rockets and they have to play well if they want to represent the Western Conference Finals. On the other hand, we expect that the Warriors will not give up their home court advantage following their NBA record of 16-game home winning streak in the Playoffs history, surpassing the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan’s 15 win streak in 1990-1991.
