Three and easy: Warriors back to setting records, but Curry injured in win over Houston

The MVP’s injury comeback only lasted a half before he appeared to twist his knee after a slip.

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS lost Stephen Curry to a knee injury before half time, but rallied straight into big third quarter to beat the Houston Rockets 121 – 94 and take a commanding 3-1 series lead.

The Warriors set an NBA playoff record with 21 three pointers, one of them from Curry before he left the contest after injuring his knee in the first half when he slipped on a wet spot.

Curry had missed games two and three with a right ankle injury.

Warriors stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green unleashed a third-quarter three-point barrage for ‘The Dubs’ – the duo scoring 25 of the 41 points in quarter three. In Curry’s absence, Thompson again stepped up as an individual with 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists overall.
