Stop Hack-a. NOW. Everybody. Stop.
Rockets are shooting 34 percent. Howard is 8 of 13 from the line. Why not just play defense?
2007 was louder more often--ALL THE FRIGGIN' TIME--but that just now was as loud as it gets in here.
Maybe it was last night that Harden went to the Drake concert?
7-0 Warriors run at a very key time.
This is an Iguodala moment.
Harden's 11th turnover ties an NBA postseason record and gives Warriors a plus-nine.
Now Igodala takes Harden’s cookies
Very curious to see if Kerr gives Curry his normal rest to start the fourth quarter. With Klay in foul trouble, might be tough to do.
Warriors shooting 36.9 percent … Rockets at 36.7 percent
Houston is going at Curry now. He's getting in between switching the screen and staying on Terry.
Andrew Bogut gives all left-handed high fives to his teammates. Something is not right with his right hand.
Told you. They will make every shot they have to. The Warriors are going to have to earn this
Then with the great steal on Harden.
Wow. Draymond took Harden’s cookies
Nightmare game for Draymond so far
Terry sold a call that was correct.
This box score will be one to save because it will prove that both teams should have lost.
That’s Harden’s 9th turnover
Remarkably, that is Green's second field goal.
Who or what coach instilled in Josh Smith & Dwight Howard that they were so good they didn't have to make free throws?
And on cue...
Draymond is 1 for 10.
Warriors foul trouble Thompson 5 Barnes 4 Barbosa 4 Iguodala 3
That’s the Warriors’ 22nd foul. Rockets have committed 11
Stephen Curry is 0-for-3 from the field and 0-for-2 from three-point range since discarding the protective elbow sleeve.
Even though you are already counting, Thompson is out and Curry is 4 for 15.
And hack-a comes back to haunt a little--that's Barbosa's fourth. Just Barbosa, but still.
This game is going to a very weird place.
Nerves are real
9-0 Houston run and has the ball again.
Kerr thought better of it and subbed in Leandro Barbosa for Klay Thompson.
Uhh, Klay, you're not supposed to reach when you're in foul trouble and your coach leaves you in trusting you won't... reach.
Kerr takes a gamble leaving Thompson in at four, pays for it now.
Curry’s sleeve is off
Five on Klay. Barbosa coming in.
That’s Klay’s 5th
Curry knew that was off when he shot it
Klay Thompson picks up his fourth personal foul, but it looks like Steve Kerr is going to let him play through it.
Thompson's fourth foul causes some intestinal agita in Kerr.
4 on Klay. But at least this time he didn’t let Howard make the basket
Fourth on Klay.
The Rockets are going to make every shot necessary to keep this game close. Bank on it
Joe Lacob missed Thompson's opening layup. Very poor effort indeed.
Lil B brought celebratory cigars for everyone?
Rockets have 46 points at the half. They had 45 in the first quarter last game
Harden's eight first-half turnovers are awfully conspicuous as box score items go.
Warriors still haven’t gone small
Livingston was +10 last game, and is now +7 in this game.
Kanye West in the building sitting next to Peter Guber. Halftime show is The Rubberboy.
Warriors win the second quarter 35-24.
Curry misses from 35. Horrific.
Kerr going with the offense-defense substitutions. Lee out. Azalea in
False start on McAdoo. Kerr pulled him back
Warriors are too good at defense for the hack-a strategy, IMO
In comes David Lee
Ezeli giveth and Ezeli fumbleth away.
Curry with the fake-scoop-layup dime
Festus for the rest of us
I'll say this: Barbosa is EXCELLENT at the hack-a.
For a guy who said he hates the hack-a strategy before the series, Kerr sure is doing a lot of hack-a.
LB grabs Howard. The hack-a is in effect.
Barbosa for Klay, who picked up his 3rd foul
The Warriors are 0-for-3 trying lobs to Ezeli
Ariza on Curry that possession.
Ezeli in for Bogut
Bogut: 11 rebounds.
Curry shaken after that three, but not so shaken that he isn't working Mauer and Brothers for a call.
Curry works on that shot before every game
He just never misses those.
Keep an eye on Bogut and Howard. Whole lotta pushing and shoving and grabbing and holding. Both T'd. Both were asking for it.
