Rockets in 60 seconds: Players confident they'll bounce back in Game 4

Curry is widely considered one of the best players in the National Basketball Association but had faced some criticism after he failed to deliver his usual high caliber of play in the opening games of the series. He finished with 35 points in a slump-busting performance to help guide the Warriors to a 2-1 series lead. "It's a message I've heard before", Curry told ESPN.

About a minute later, Curry used a screen to get James Harden to switch onto him and he crossed him over and nailed a step-back contested triple.

"I blacked out", he said.

If you loved it, then did you also love Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan yelling at the Carolina Panthers "Get the f-- off my field!" in 2012 after the Falcons edged the Panthers in Atlanta on a last-second field goal? I won't let two tough games shooting keep me frustrated'. "Played soft, actually. I mean, you can't do that with these guys".

Big match scheduled for tonight's WWE Smackdown Live in London
What else happened on SmackDown? You can see highlights from the segment below, which featured Cass coming down to mock Bryan. AJ Styles will take on Shinsuke Nakamura at Money in the Bank , according to SmackDown Live commissioner Shane McMahon.

Green was not shocked by Curry's explosion because he expects more to come. He is now 7 of 25 from long range - he made one in each of the first two games.

Even with the July 2016 arrival of Kevin Durant, Curry's long-distance shooting has been the signature of this hugely successful Warriors run. Golden State gave Houston too much to handle. "Because I find myself in those type of isolation situations a lot with how they guard, so you can make plays and be ready for those type of one-on-one situations". So, I did my job tonight. The Warriors are 4-0 this postseason when the trio combine for 70 or more. The Warriors won an NBA-record 16th consecutive home postseason game, surpassing the Chicago Bulls' mark of 15 in a row from April 27, 1990-May 21, 1991.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, D'Antoni said the Warriors can't afford to head back to Houston with the series tied.
