The Houston Rockets charged to their second win against the Warriors 112-108 in the Toyota Center.
James Harden led all scorers with 38 points, 10 rebounds, and four assists. Overcoming a Kevin Durant’s 34 points and Steph Curry 30 points.
“When you’re dealing with these guys, if you let Klay (Thompson) and Steph (Curry) run around and shoot 3s you don’t have no chance,” Harden said. “The only chance we have is to be in to their bodies and make every shot that they take contested.”
Warriors forward Draymond Green spoke about the adjustments that need to be made going into Game 5.
“I think our vibe is just great,” Green said. “Because everybody’s just looking at each other like we know if we just correct the effort things we’re just fine. And so everybody’s spirits are up, everyone’s feeling good about the opportunity that we have. We didn’t feel this way after Game 4 last year [against the Rockets] that’s for sure. Andre [Iguodala] had just went out [with a left knee injury]. We spent Game 4 trying to figure out who that guy [to replace him] would be. There were just so many questions that needed to be answered.
