Treacherous quarter squashes the Rockets as they now trail the Warriors 3-1
HOUSTON, TX – The Rockets are still searching for answers of how Sunday’s third quarter went so terribly. The poor frame led Houston to fall 121-94 against Golden State. The Rockets now trail the series 3-1.
“Terrible way to lose,” James Harden said. “Third quarter was just a breakdown. It led to 41 points, which is way too many points.”
The Rockets had been tied with Golden State at halftime, but despite Stephen Curry not playing in the second half with a knee injury, the Warriors were able to outscore the Rockets by 21 points in the third quarter.
The Rockets face an elimination game in Wednesday’s Game 5 in Oakland.
