Rockets rout Warriors 127-105 to tie series at 1-all

Stephen Curry: Rockets' plan for me will have 'a lot of back-and-forth'

HOUSTON-Stephen Curry has created so much magic for the Warriors, and he has two championships and two league MVP awards to prove it.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said the effort showed why his team are the top seed. Webber said. "I didn't know that was you ... he and his brother are having a good time tonight".

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors looked nearly unbeatable in the series opener but maybe they were a little too confident because they didn't start Game 2 with the right level of urgency and it meant they were playing from behind the entire game.

After a disappointing Game 1 loss to the Warriors that left fans and analysts scratching their heads, something drastic had to change in Game 2. "You can look at it any way you want ... and parcel it out, but it didn't matter who we had out there tonight we got beat". "We're a good team, but that's a great team on the other end as well", Durant told the Athletic's Tim Kawakami after Game 2 at the Toyota Center.

Stephen Curry insisted he is over the knee injury that kept him out of action for 22 games after struggling to make an impact in the first two games against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals.

Warriors star Kevin Durant had torched the Rockets to the tune of 37 points, Klay Thompson added 28 and Draymond Green had a well-rounded stat line complete with five points, nine assists and nine rebounds.

Offaly plane crash: Eyewitness says aircraft came down 'vertically' into bog
It is understood the task was made more hard as the plane was buried to a depth of around six feet in the bog. The Irish Parachute Club says it's deeply saddened and its thoughts and prayers are with those affected.

Durant made a basket after that, but Houston scored the next eight points to extend the lead to 119-91 with about five minutes left. Curry will look to bounce back after making just one of eight three-point attempts in Game 2 while the rest of the role players will step up at home so I'm expecting a much closer contest. As a team, the Warriors offense didn't look almost good at all as they shot 45 percent from the field and nine of 30 from the three-point line.

They finished the game with 15 turnovers - 11 of those coming before halftime, by when most of the damage was done.

The 30-foot 3-point shots, the insane acrobatics under the rim, the infectious joy that he brings to the game - there's no one else in the National Basketball Association who has a set of spells quite like Curry. "We were smarter", said Harden, whose Rockets travel to Oakland for game three on Sunday with renewed confidence.

"We got outplayed the whole game. we got it handed to us", Kerr said. The Rockets went away from their iso ball and took a page out of the Warriors' playbook which worked well at home as the role players stepped up, but repeating that performance on the road is going to be tough. The winners of the series will face either the Cleveland Cavaliers or Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals.

The Warriors taking on the Rockets is a match up that has been discussed since October a year ago and it is fitting that the top two teams from the West have made it to the conference finals. "The first quarter was still the most important part of the game". "That's a tough environment to play in there".
