Watch the Houston Rockets travel to the Golden State Warriors’ home of Oracle Arena in Oakland, where they will try to stay alive at least one more day in their NBA Western Conference Final series — while Golden State will hope that league MVP Stephen Curry can recover from a frightening injury that saw him apparently knocked out cold on the Toyota Arena floor in Houston Monday night.

With their backs against the proverbial wall, down 3-0 in the series as the two teams grapple for a spot in the NBA Finals and a shot at the Championship, the Rockets coasted to a surprising 128-115 victory, behind a 45-point explosion by All Star shooting guard James Harden.
The stunning 128-point total was the most any team had scored against the Warriors in any game this season, either in the regular season or the playoffs.
“We don’t want to go home, man,” Houston veteran point guard Corey Brewer said after the game. “I guess everybody needed to get mad. I feel like it was good for us. We got mad and we did what we needed to do. We couldn’t let anybody come in here and sweep up. Somebody is going to make history. Why not us?”
The final score was overshadowed by a nerve-wracking moment in the second quarter when Curry, elevating to block a shot by Houston’s Trevor Ariza, crashed into Ariza on the way down, being upended and landing on his head.
However, the Warriors said that they ran Curry through concussion protocols not once but twice to be certain that he could safely continue in the game, and he passed the tests both times.
