Steph Curry has been struggling to find his shots in this series against the Rockets. The two-time NBA MVP was only 2-13 from behind the arc in the first two games of the series.
It looked like more of the same on Sunday night in Oracle Arena, Curry’s shot was just inches off.
“Everybody’s human,” said Curry. “But consistently, that’s what’s gotten me through some tough times and really keeps my perspective right when games go well too, because it can change quick.”
The game changed real quick in the second half. Coming out of halftime the Rockets were only down by 13 points with a chance to get back into the game. Until Curry scored on a layup with the foul after that he put the game out reach with his 18 point quarter. The crowd grew more intense with every shot Curry made.
After nailing a step back jumper on James Harden, Curry reminded the Rockets where they were. Curry yelled “This is my f—ing house!” –after doing his signature shimming.

“We’ve seen this so many times with Steph. All it takes is one,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said after the Warriors’ 126-85 win. “This guy is a two-time MVP.”
Curry and Kevin Durant ended up scoring 60 points combined. They outscored the Rockets entire starting five line up.
