Chris Paul and James Harden (combined 12-of-32 FG) each struggled while Steph Curry (35 points, 13-of-23 FG) and Kevin Durant (25 points, 9-of-19 FG) were elite, leading Golden State to a 126-85 romp in Game 3 on Sunday night.
Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, which the Warriors now lead two games to one, is Tuesday night — also at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.
In our postgame recap, Ben breaks down the key takeaways from a forgettable Game 3 from the Rockets. Topics include a subpar showing from the supporting cast (Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker, Trevor Ariza) after a strong Game 2; continued regression from Harden (17/9, 6-of-14 FG) after a superb Game 1 (41 points, 14-of-24 FG); and possible concerns over Paul‘s foot after a 2-of-11 start to Game 3.
