The Rockets better hope they get some home field advantage, as the Warriors will fly out to the Toyota Center in Houston to play Game 3 on April 21. Will the Dubs keep showing why they’re the best NBA team in history or will Houston score a much-needed win? Action kicks off at 6:30 P.M. EST so be ready to see every second!
The Dubs gave Steph the night off, scoring a 115-106 victory in Game 2 without him. Klay Thompson, 26, banked 34 points, according to NBA.com. Andre Iguodala, 32, also nailed 18. It’s good that the team stepped up, because Step is still questionable. He has an MRI on April 19, per ESPN, after spraining his ankle in Game 1. Thankfully, the test didn’t reveal any major damage.
“We’ll see how he responds the next couple of days, and if he’s not right, obviously being up 2-0 does give us more cushion if we decide to sit him,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr, 50, said. “But it will be based on his health — not the series score.” Pick up your official Golden State Warriors jersey here.
