Thompson Guarantees He'll Play Better in Game 3

The Houston Rockets had a night to forget as they suffered a 41-point humiliation at the hands of the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

After his team cruised to a 126-85 win, Kerr stressed the importance of not getting complacent. Thompson had just eight points on 3-of-11 shooting and 2-of-4 from long range as the Warriors' "Splash Brothers", who combined for 46 points in Game 1 were nowhere to be found when the team needed them. "Offensively, we didn't have any thrust and they exploited it". In Game 2, the Rockets had more possessions in transition, 23 to 16, and beat the Warriors, 127-105.

The Rockets have spent months living up to their promise that this season would be different: They have won more games, defended more effectively, and played with greater consistency than at any point during Harden's tenure.

When the Warriors get back in front of their home crowd, they could go back to looking like an unbeatable juggernaut that seems destined to win a third championship in four years.

Curry, just 1-for-7 on 3-pointers in the first half after going just 2-for-13 in the first two games of the series, connected from 28 and 25 feet during a 14-0 burst midway through the third period that turned a 70-56 game into an 84-56 demolition. In a 2015 first-round series loss to Golden State, Houston was blown off the court by 35 points in Game 3 and sent home soundly in Game 5, a 14-point defeat in which Harden managed just 14 points.

He was 7 for 7 in the third quarter, torching defenders with an array of moves and long-distance shots. With two games played in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics look poised to reach the NBA Finals for the first time in eight years, while the Rockets have drawn level against Golden State and are bidding to reach the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995.

Speaking to ESPN, Curry said: "I blacked out".

"We're in the middle of a hell of a run, obviously", coach Steve Kerr said. Coach D'Antoni has reiterated throughout these playoffs that the only changes necessary are playing harder and smarter, so I don't see much on that end.

"He's good, and sooner or later he's going to erupt", D'Antoni said.

"She's right", Curry continued. "But, you know, you just can't allow it to happen". "He's aggressive and we need to feed off that focus and determination". As a result, the Rockets committed 19 turnovers, their most during the 2018 postseason.
