The Golden State Warriors secured a 115-80 win over the Houston Rockets to open up a 3-0 series lead in the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night.
Lakers interested in Hawks star: Celtics and Pistons also monitoring situation.
Lakers won’t trade Draft pick: Kupchak says they will probably use it, but on who?
Thibodeau won’t accept Bulls trade: Split still seems inevitable.
Warriors point guard Stephen Curry put up 40 points, seven assists and five rebounds in the win as he made the difference in what is quickly becoming a one-sided series that the MVP is dominating.
Curry set the record for most made threes in a single post-season as early as the second quarter, and he continued to lead the charge for the visitors before taking a seat on the bench late in the fourth quarter with the game won.
Klay Thompson and Draymond Green added 17 points apiece, while Andrew Bogut had a strong game with 12 points and 12 rebounds as Golden State continue to boss this series in every facet as the Rockets now face an elimination game on Monday night.
James Harden could only muster 17 points in a disappointing night overall for the hosts, and they must now win four straight games if they are to advance to the NBA Finals.
However, with Curry in such great form as he has now scored 30 or more points in each game so far in the series, it is looking more and more unlikely that Houston will be able to turn it around as they look to at least delay the inevitable by protecting home court in Game 4 and forcing the series to go back to Oakland next week.
If there were any doubts over who the MVP in the NBA is this year, Curry is making sure he answers the questions emphatically.
