Thompson went just 3-11 from the field for 8 points in 37 minutes during the Golden State Warriors 127-105 loss in game 2 to the Rockets.

The Rockets must win at least one game in Oakland if they are to win the series and it really has to come in Game 4 as overturning a 3-1 deficit would be an improbable task.

"You go to certain arenas and a guy gets a dunk and it's absurd", stated Green. Turnovers? The Warriors, who had seven in the first quarter of Game 2, had just nine for the entire game. Ten of Golden State's 15 home postseason wins have come by double digits, and they have outscored their opponents by an average of 15.5 points per game. One note: Durant compounded the problem by catching Ariza on the arm as he went up for the ensuing shot for his first foul. Curry netted 26 of his 35 points in the second half - including an 18-point barrage in the third quarter - with daggers from all over the floor, each more dazzling than the last. Golden State gave Houston too much to handle.

He was 7 for 7 in the third quarter, torching defenders with an array of moves and long-distance shots. In searching for the words to describe Houston's 41-point loss at Oracle Arena, head coach Mike D'Antoni simply said his team "played soft". The Warriors' defense, meanwhile, held the Rockets to 88 points per 100 possessions, a far cry from Houston's 109.6 offensive rating in the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs.

"I was a little in between, indecisive", Curry said.

"It feels like the finals." said Cedrick Golden, Sports Columnists for the Austin American-Statesman before the game "It's the game we've been waiting for 6 months now". I mean obviously it felt good and you want to use that energy to show your team-mates that you're here, you're with them, get the crowd into it.

"Game 2, watching the film, I just had plays where I was in between - whether to switch or not, which way to send a guy".

"Offensively, we didn't have any thrust, and they exploited it", Harden said. "He's aggressive and we need to feed off that focus and determination". And tonight we were taking the ball out the net.

Davidson's Bob McKillop shepherded Steph Curry's All-American career in college and remains very close to the best player he has ever coached. As a result, the Rockets committed 19 turnovers, their most during the 2018 postseason.
