NOTE: This is the game thread for the second half.

The first half was an exciting one at Oracle Arena. The Golden State Warriors used some stellar defense to limit Chris Paul, James Harden, and the Houston Rockets. Stephen Curry struggled shooting the ball, but it didn’t matter much, as the Warriors take a double digit lead to the locker room, 54-43.

The biggest highlight of the first half came courtesy of Kevon Looney, who played stellar defense, especially on one play:

But it wasn’t just defense that did the job for the Warriors. Check out Andre Iguodala cleaning up his own miss, in style:

Kevin Durant leads the Warriors with 15 points, and has been absolutely excellent thus far.

How do you stop that? Thankfully, you can’t.

In the second half, the Warriors need to keep up the defensive intensity. Better yet, hopefully Curry starts to catch fire from beyond the arc.

24 minutes away from a 2-1 series lead. Let’s Go Dubs!!!
