IN AN 0-3 HOLE

Curry, Warriors on another level as Rockets blown out, trail series 0-3

Despite two close losses, the Rockets showed in Oakland that they could compete with the mighty Warriors. Then they came home and weren't competitive in the slightest. Stephen Curry (40 points in 35 minutes) led a complete 115-80 Warriors blowout at the Toyota Center, putting the Rockets in an 0-3 hole. For perspective, no team in NBA history has ever come back from an 0-3 series deficit. The 80 points scored by the Rockets was their second-lowest output of the season. James Harden was completely contained by a wave of Warrior defenders, going just 3-16 from the field. The game was lost early as the Warriors built a 25-point halftime lead and never looked back. Houston's usually-opportunistic defense in the passing lanes came up with just one turnover in the first half and the bench gave the team nothing, going 0-9 from the field. "We didn't have the same energy that we had in the first couple of games," said Pablo Prigioni. "I don't know why. When they made their separation, we couldn't come back."
