Like Jonah Hill's character in "Super Bad" famously said: "People don't forget."

But, man, the Houston Rockets really wish people would have a case of amnesia when it comes to Game 7 of the 2018 Western Conference finals.

You know the story. With a chance to knock off the defending champion Warriors, the Rockets missed 27 consecutive 3-pointers en route to a 101-92 loss. The Dubs went on to dust the Cleveland Cavaliers and win their second consecutive title. 

While only a year has passed, James Harden and Co. had hoped the world at large had forgotten their historic cold streak.

Steve Kerr has not.

Ahead of Saturday night's Game 3 in Houston, the Warriors coach was asked a question about last year's Game 7. When the reporter said the Rockets missed 26 consecutive 3-pointers, Kerr had to poke some fun at his Western Conference rivals.

Ouch.

With the Warriors leading this year's second-round series 2-0, Kerr has the luxury of cracking jokes at Houston's expense.

 

The Dubs can push the Rockets to the brink of elimination with a win Saturday in Game 3, and then the jokes really will start flowing.
