Golden State Warriors: If we win we will be closer to the title.
The Warriors want to win today. Despite losing the third game, the domain of the second half was nine points. But in the overtime the Warriors scored only 9 points against 14 of the Rockets. The initial problem of the Warriors was the lack of points from the bench, just 7 points with Looney, Livingston and McKinnie. Among the starters the only one that was above 20 points was Kevin Durant with 46 points. Durant always does the same thing and strangely plays well when he wants to. But his points did not work to win.
