nhl highlights all on espn. >> mark: there's a side of me that wants to -- you look at this rockets team and the history of this game and say okay, well we're going against golden state with a chance to extend the series. but there's nothing in the rockets' play since curry has gone down and at moments throughout the course of the season that indicates to me that they want to -- >> mike: shot clock winding down. there's your nba record. 21 threes. golden state all by themselves now. 21 of 38 from downtown. terry misses. >> mark: when they made the threes. cool to be part of history. well,

and fight with us. but he's strong and we're going to carry him but we always say strength in numbers. one guy can't just do what he does for us. >> >> lisa: how did the game change for you knowing he was going to be out? >> i knew had to be a bit more aggressive looking for my shot. really good the last week or two. and just knew i had to kind of treat it like i do and practice. i really go at those guys. so it's trying to do the same things. teammates looking out for me. >> lisa: you and draymond blew up the game. what was clicking for you guys? >> we have a lot of confidence. and there are things we can do that we hold back with because our team doesn't need it and it's nights like tonight, okay, the guys need us to do this tonight so we're ready to go. >> lisa: take a look at this video andre. this is the treatment you got on the bench from trainer chelsea

here we are wrapping up an interesting sunday on nba playoff action. the warriors are officially up 3-1 in this series. no surprise there. let's start with the results of the game before we get into the injury situation. there's at least one for each team significant however third quarter jaylen rose the golden state warriors were tied and
what was the key. >> plus 21 in the third. they played like a team that saw their leader down on the canvas and said we can't play any extra basketball games by coach collins continuing to stress and draymond green, their other all-star. klay thompson both will be nba performers led a three-point barrage in the third quarter. we're going to talk about the rockets not showing up to play. >> i was going to ask you. when you see, you have been there i haven't. when you see the mvp go down, steph curry go down don't you want to say okay here's our chance let's go for the jugular. there was none of that there from the houston rockets. >> does that surprise you? i mean that's what they have been all year. >> exactly. >> to me, it's what you saw remember the one year they won and they were done 0-2 and came back and
don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion. that's what you saw in golden state today. the heart of a champion. if you are the houston rockets, i mean you don't know how long steph curry is out. let's hope it's not going to be long. >> sure. >> but you even up this series 2-2 and he might not play in game five and you come out and you give up 41 points in the third quarter. you get beat by 48 points from the three-point line. give up 38 assists on 46 field goals. >> after a very good first half. things you said were important. they did it in the first half. >> but it's been the whole series. he's averaged good first half and came back and had one basket in the second. it's collective team. i'm watching at the end of the game and even guys who came in at the end, the shots were wide open. i said i think i could get a jumper off a game like that. that's discouraging for me and j.b. bickersff
reflection of the coach. when a team plays like that it rips your heart out. you go in the locker room, jay, because you say i can't get my message across to this team. >> and even could kevon mikhail. >> uncontested layups, threes, not running back on defense, it just showed low basketball character for a team that's in the playoffs and you should be enthusiastic to play in front of your home fans you see an opportunity with steph curry on the canvas. maybe we have a chance to tie this series up and for them to play the way they played in the second half it's almost embarrassing that they were a playoff team. >> we don't have too much time left. let's get to steph curry. that made everybody across the country whince when you saw him go down. he was emotional. you can go in several different directions. whatap
>> no steph curry. they get by this series if he's unable to go and unfortunately we would have to look forward. i don't think because the west is that tough that they would advance past the second round. that's giving credit to their opponent. >> well, you know, i get it with steph because he just gotten back from the ankle. now this happens. you could just see how much the kid loves to play. i'm just praying, i'm telling you i hope the kid is going to be okay because i want to watch him play basketball. >> i do, too. a couple of freak things that happened to him in houston. he took a nasty tumble in the gym. what happened today. hopefully he gets it right. >> you know they'll have mri's and tons of reports. game five wednesday on tnt in oakland. "world news" or your local news is next except on the west coast. thanks for watching.
