Not landing Kevin Durant might have been the greatest thing to happen to Under Armour. Use some of that $ to further market Curry.

Curry reminds Houston who won MVP

Stephen Curry had a little extra for the crowd after this 3-pointer, as the Warriors blew open the game in the third quarter.

Steph just did NBA equivalent of Eric Cantona's score-and-stare into the faces of a tortured crowd. Not sure we've seen that on these shores

Ethan Strauss @SherwoodStrauss

Sitting near Doug Collins who shouted, "How about that!" and just started laughing maniacally after that broken play Curry 3. I get it

Curry does it again

The left corner is Steph Curry's money shot, and he drained one after a Dwight Howard block to give Golden State a 24-point lead midway through the third quarter. Then the MVP -- who is up to 29 points tonight -- stared down the Houston crowd. Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Curry battles Howard for rebound

Dwight Howard is listed at 6-foot-11 and averages more than 10 rebounds a game. Stephen Curry is 6-3 and pulls down about 4 a game. So this battle of the boards was a mismatch, right? Umm ... not so fast.

The Rockets' 37 points scored are the second fewest first half points this season. 36 were scored vs. Sacramento Dec. 11. Rockets won in OT.

This is looking like the Rockets team during the first 4 games of the Clippers series (losses of 16, 25 and 33 points) not the last 5 games.

Ethan Strauss @SherwoodStrauss

Warriors are up 25, Draymond Green is number 23, and a fan yelled, "28 you're horrible!" at him as the Warriors went to the locker room

Rockets can't find the answers

The Warriors have opened up a 25-point lead at halftime, 62-37, after holding the Rockets under 30% shooting in the first half. James Harden has just 8 points on 1-of-8 shooting. Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

It's early but it's starting to smell like a pair of conference finals sweeps. That would mean 8 days off before start of the NBA Finals.

Steph Curry with the shot

The chef is cooking in the second quarter (14 points) as he's draining 3-pointers and breaking records to give the Warriors a huge lead on ESPN.
