The Warriors are noticeably more under control at the Toyota Center

Tim Kawakami

Man, the Warriors are going hard right now. Reminds me of Game 2 vs. San Antonio two years ago. Just total attack mode.

Monte Poole

Timeout: #Warriors 13, #Rockets 9, 7:20 left in Q1. Klay (2of3) and Bogut (3of3). Ariza on Steph, Draymond d'ing up on Harden.

Diamond Leung

Remember when people in the preseason wondered if Andrew Bogut would avoid contact?

Rusty Simmons

Shaun Livingston used that timeout as a chance to go out on the court and get a feel for the game ball.

Tim Kawakami

He tried put a 7-foot Australian through the rim, too. twitter.com/ThompsonScribe…

Tim Kawakami

Warriors 6 baskets, 5 assists, 3 of them by Draymond Green.

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 13, Rockets 9 (7:20, 1st) After Howard dunk, Bogut scores on hook, draws charge on Howard, finishes alley-oop from Draymond.

Marcus Thompson

Howard dunked that so hard. That 35 years of wanting and wanting ...

Rusty Simmons

Harrison Barnes gets the first go at trying to defend James Harden.

Marcus Thompson

With Ariza on Curry, others are bringing the ball up

Marcus Thompson

Was that a pass from Draymond?

Marcus Thompson

Draymond Green end sup on Harden on the switch. Barnes on him now

Tim Kawakami

That was a transition switch. It's Barnes on Harden.

Rusty Simmons

Trevor Ariza begins the game defending Stephen Curry.

Looking forward to locking in on Warriors-Rockets Game 3. Track records count, yet everyone's slate wiped clean. Time to be open-minded.

Rusty Simmons

Welcome to the Toyota Center, where the court is dwarfed by the giant video board. http://t.co/eDgWG6Cmeu

Toyota Center seems about 3/4 full.

Rockets cheerleaders are handing out the supposedly homemade signs in the arena to fans, one of which reads "Rockets Power Dancers are Hot."

Tim Kawakami

I don't travel with the Warriors during the regular season, but I doubt Stephen Curry has been booed much ever. He just was here.

Rusty Simmons

Game 3 starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; HOU -- Terry, Harden, Ariza, Smith, Howard. Out: Speights; Beverley.

Steve Kerr said he isn't concerned about Klay Thompson's offensive woes. Said Klay usually bounces back

Rusty Simmons

Asked about his relationship with Daryl Morey, Kevin McHale said: "That's like the third relationship question. What is this, Oprah?"

Diamond Leung

Kevin McHale after taking one too many questions on relationships: "What is this, Oprah?"

Rusty Simmons

Kevin McHale said he'll play center Dwight Howard (left knee) "as much as we can."

Tim Kawakami

Asked Curry what Kerr calls the play where he dribbles for 23 seconds and then shoots over somebody. "No No No No Yes," Curry said.

Ha, Ron Adams: "Sometimes I'm writing when Steph makes a great shot, and it's irritating to me. I have to do my job, too."

Monte Poole

Talked to #Warriors C/F @Marreese Speights (strained R calf), who says he's better but is considering additional therapies to speed healing.

Tim Kawakami

What did Steph Curry do during the long delay yesterday? He went and hit balls on the range, of course.

Rusty Simmons

Steve Kerr said reserve forward Mo Speights (right calf) continues to improve, but he won't be ready to play in tonight's Game 3.

Tim Kawakami

Steve Kerr generally on the questions about the flight delay: "You guys are making too big a deal out of this." (Paraphrased.)

Rusty Simmons

Stephen Curry said he went to the driving range and still had time to get home for a little bit during yesterday's flight delay.

My love for Warriors fans can't be questioned. Just for you, and because we go way back, I'm gonna golf again today. Selflessness.

Monte Poole

After hobbling about for 19 pts & 17rebs against #Warriors in Game 2, HOU C Dwight Howard says his sprained knee is much better for Gm 3.

Tim Kawakami

Canceled yesterday's practice which was scheduled for yesterday afternoon in Houston. They're at shoot-around now. twitter.com/DerekP23/statu…

Tim Kawakami

The Warriors landed in Houston about 10 p.m. CT last night.

James Harden on Warriors assistant Ron Adams: "That’s one of my closest friends...I know he has something up his sleeve over there."

Tim Kawakami

Read this as "full of mutants and Jeds." Would be an interesting convention. twitter.com/annkillion/sta…

Rusty Simmons

James Harden talking about growing up near Klay Thompson."He was a late bloomer,but he's turned into a great shooter and a terrific player."

Rusty Simmons

Howard was asked about Harden's confidence level following the final play of Game 2. "Why would his confidence be down?He had a great game."

Rusty Simmons

Dwight Howard said his left knee feels better than it did going into Game 2. "I don't even want to think of it as an injury."

Tim Kawakami

Mechanical issues and then I think they had some trouble finding another plane. twitter.com/JustMeSab/stat…

Someone who will never understand my point. And someone who just doesn't care about defense. >>> twitter.com/NickBorjian/st…

Tim Kawakami

It's the Score. Of. The. Game. If that's too mysterious or anger-inciting for some, I cannot explain it any further.

Tim Kawakami

And points-rebounds AREN'T affected by the same things? ALL stats are relative. Every single one. twitter.com/NickBorjian/st…

Tim Kawakami

The resistance to it--vs. the worship of points-rebounds--is odd, because plus/minus takes defense into account. Or maybe not so odd.
