The Rockets have hunted Stephen Curry in this game — whether it’s James Harden or Chris Paul with the ball, whoever Curry is guarding is coming out to set the screen and force the switch. Curry has handled well at times — he had a good steal on Harden at one point — but the Rockets have gotten their buckets, too.

Chris Paul dropped Curry on this third-quarter play.

Draymond Green rightfully got on Curry after the play — Curry tried to sell the call, didn’t get it, stayed down, and that let Paul come in and get his own rebound and score.

The Warriors still led 87-80 after three thanks to a massive third quarter from Kevin Durant.
