The series is now tied 2-2.
Heading into Game 4 on Monday night, the Golden State Warriors had a chance to go up 3-1 on the Houston Rockets in their second-round series. Despite a 34-point performance from Kevin Durant and a 30-point performance from Steph Curry, the Warriors weren't able to get it done as the Rockets won the game 112-108. James Harden put up 38 points for the Rockets in Game 4, all while the Warriors bench struggled to get points on the board.
With the series tied at two games apiece, the Warriors aren't panicking just yet as the series is heading back home for Game 5.
"This is what it's about," Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said according to ESPN. "This is the NBA playoffs, the best teams in the league. We're playing a great team and we know what the game plan is and we know how good they are. So it's just about competition, that's it."
Curry struggled in Game 3 but was much more successful last night. As he explained, he knew he had to be better and did everything he could to help his team win. Despite losing, it was clear that Curry was in his zone again.
"The last 48 hours has been pretty funny," Curry said. "Hearing all the noise and chatter about how I've been playing this series. I take it all in stride and understand what I'm capable of. And doing it within the context of how we play as a team, I can play even better. So I'm just trying to stay within my own zone, in terms of what I expect from myself on the floor and leaving it all out there and living with the results because I know how prepared I am every night."
Game 5 goes down on Wednesday night in Oakland at 10:30 P.M. EST.
