Harden's 30 points help Rockets win to level series

The Warriors broke thru and took home court advantage away from the Houston Rockets with a 109-86 win at Houston and then the Rockets bounced back at home with a 127-105 win.

Stephen Curry had 28 points and Kevin Durant 27 for the Warriors, who had their NBA-record, 16-game home play-off winning streak snapped. Thompson and Iguodala will need to be on the floor and perform well for Golden State to steal another game in Houston.

Paul played poorly in Game 3, when he seemed to lack explosiveness, finishing with 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting as the top-seeded Rockets suffered the most lopsided playoff loss in franchise history. CP3 finished with 27 points on 10-of-20 shooting, including 5-for-9 from 3-point range. Both Curry and Klay Thompson missed consecutive 3 pointers. Weathering the storm, the runs that they made, and knowing that now we get a chance to go back home, we knew we had to get at least one win here. "I think we saw", D'Antoni said. And credit to them: We know they're doing a lot of switching and trying to force us into one-on-one-type situations, but that's no excuse to not get the ball moving, trusting what we do best. I don't necessarily believe they figured something out. They were almost down an insurmountable three games to one to a team that's probably better than them.

The fourth quarter of Game 4 offered a prime example. "We put the pressure on him to make him drive a little bit". For the already silver-locked D'Antoni, who at 67 would be the oldest coach to win an National Basketball Association title if Houston gets it done, the exhilaration of this journey has been well worth any stress it has caused.

United States media giant Comcast considering challenge to Disney's 21st Century Fox bid
Comcast backed off of its attempts to purchase Fox in December, just before Disney made its $52.4 billion offer. Comcast won approval on Monday from the United Kingdom government to move ahead with the offer for Sky.

With Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Harden and Chris Paul all over that 40-minute mark, you'd think the Rockets would be the team that was exhausted.

Following another Steph Curry offensive explosion, the Warriors held a 10-point lead after the third quarter and it looked like they were well on their way to taking a commanding 3-1 lead over the Rockets.

Paul had seven points during the Rockets' rally in the fourth quarter, which he started with a 17-foot pull-up jumper immediately after the Warriors pushed their lead to 12 points, matching their largest of the night.

"Our normal sub pattern obviously was skewed with Andre's absence", Kerr said.

Iran calls U.S. leaders cruel and disloyal, says armed forces "prepared"
President Donald Trump's administration withdrew from the historic Iran nuke deal earlier this month despite the global outcry. They should condemn USA for allegedly breaking a United Nations resolution that supports the nuclear deal.

"We can regain control of the series if we go down there and play a complete game, and we've shown we can do it before. Trusting what we do best, and whether it's the first quarter, second quarter or crunch time in the fourth, we've got to be us".

Instead, the Warriors find themselves in a dogfight with a more than game Rockets team, and with a roster that lacks the right depth to face it.

The monster dunk came in the second quarter, and Harden scored on Draymond Green.
