Warriors win 3-of-14 Stephen Curry game a day after Rockets win 3-of-20 James Harden game
The Warriors have taken a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Los Angeles Clippers as they head back home. Curry struggled to find his shooting stroke all night. He was just 3-of-14 from the field and 1-of-9 from 3-point territory. He finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, and three steals.
Klay’s 27-point first half bumped the Warriors into the lead. Durant’s steady production took the Warriors home. Small contributions everywhere. Curry’s rough 3/14 night overcome. Warriors take 3-1 series lead back to Oakland.

Curry’s rough game came in after Harden’s 3-of-20 game last night. In their win over the Utah Jazz which gave them a 3-0 series lead, Harden started 0-of-15 from the field. It wasn’t until the fourth quarter that he made a field goal. Harden heated up in the fourth and finished with 22 points, 10 assists, six steals, and four rebounds.
Now, both teams are just a win away from moving on to the second round. In the event that they do qualify, they’ll face off each other once again. To recall, the Rockets and the Warriors met each other in the Western Conference Finals last year. The Rockets stretched the series to seven games which quickly raised eyebrows. Some believe that they’re the only team in the West that’s capable of ousting the defending champions.
