OAKLAND — Even without their best player, Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors had more than enough firepower to handle the Houston Rockets,115-106, and take a 2-0 lead in their first-round Western Conference series.
Curry, the reigning MVP, tried to give it a go but he abruptly ended his pre-game warm-up routine.due to some discomfort.
"We want to make sure Steph is right and that his foot is fine and healthy," coach Steve Kerr told the media. "Fortunately we don't play `til Thursday and he's got some time to get some treatment."
In Curry’s absence, Klay Thompson stepped up with 34 points and a career high 16 free throw attempts. Andre Iguodala
sank four triples and finished with 18. while Draymond Green added 12 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists.
James Harden paced the Rockets with 28 points and 11 assists. Harden made 13 of 15 free throws after not attempting a single free throw in Game 1. Dwight Howard registered 12 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out late in the fourth quarter.
Steph Curry (L) a no-go in Game 2 cheered on the Warriors, who beat the Rockets for a 2-0 series lead.
