  • Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala shoots in NBA Finals in Cleveland Friday

A Game 4 win would give Golden State a comfortable 3-1 lead. Kerr could go with much-improved big man Kevon Looney - he blocked two shots in the first quarter alone Sunday - to keep a couple of key wing players available off the bench in Nick Young and Shaun Livingston. He revealed after the game that he received two home videos depicting his actions and a strong message from his mother about the language he used on court. "It was frustrating more so because I had the right intentions in the first half". Perhaps more significantly, the 41-point margin of defeat was Houston's heaviest in a playoff game. And they made this announcement after Steve Kerr, Kevin Durant and the rest of the Warriors already had spoken to the media and left the gym. "From there, I was just in the right place at the right time", he added.

While the five-time All-Star is seemingly still recovering from a knee injury that kept him out of the first round of the playoffs and the final few weeks of the regular season, Sunday's game showed that he is still healthy enough to dominate if given the opportunity.

"We're in the middle of a hell of a run, obviously", Kerr said. You go to certain arenas and a guy gets a dunk it's just absurd. Don't mean to disappoint, but I've seen crazier from him'.

James Harden had 20 points and a game-high nine assists to lead the Rockets, who had won three of their previous four road games in the postseason.

Conte signed an improved contract last summer - but not an extension - to his three-year deal which expires in June 2019. He was voted the club's players' player of the season but is still not favoured by Italian manager, Antonio Conte.

Warriors' fans understand that Curry is not flawless, but that he is a blessing to his team for his performance on and off the court. He is now 7 of 25 from long range - he made one in each of the first two games.

Also Monday, Kerr said the team plans to speak to the league regarding Draymond Green's double-technical with Trevor Ariza issued at the 6:49 mark of the fourth quarter when Ariza shoved Green as they traded words.

Both potent offenses were slow getting rolling as the teams played strong defense.
