They rebounded with wins after each of the first three, romping by an average of 20.7 points.

Game 4 is Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.

"I blacked out", Curry admitted in the postgame press conference.

His mother, Sonya Curry, was alert, however, and she wasn't happy with her son's display on national television.

Stephen Curry says he "blacked out" when he turned to the crowd after a layup, removed his mouthpiece and screamed "This is my (expletive) house" during the Golden State Warriors' 126-85 blowout win over the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Sunday in Oakland, Calif. "But I'm hoping for the best (in Game 4)".

"Tonight was all about defence and taking care of the ball", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said. No other Cavalier had more than 14 points (Kyle Korver), but the supporting cast played enough defensive and made hustle plays to hang on. Perhaps more significantly, the 41-point margin of defeat was Houston's heaviest in a playoff game.

Much of the discussion preceding this game was regarding Curry's struggles during games 1 and 2, when he was particularly hounded by Rockets' guards James Harden and Chris Paul.

As well as Curry, every other Warriors starter made double figures, with Kevin Durant finishing with 25 points and Klay Thompson 13. "You can analyse him all you want, but at the end of the day, he's still a pretty good basketball player". "We have to be ready for a great team that's going to come out like they did in Game 2, attacking, hair on fire and taking the force to us, and we have to be ready for that". Tucker and Trevor Ariza in Game 3 than in Game 2. Add in the NBA's best defender in Draymond Green and another sharpshooter in Klay Thompson and the Warriors become a almost flawless team at home.
