Stephen Curry out for Game 3 against Rockets
Stephen Curry suggested he wouldn’t play Game 3.
Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area:
Steve Kerr on Steph Curry's availability for Gm 3: 'Steph will not play tonight.'— Monte Poole (@MontePooleNBCS) April 22, 2016
Kerr on Curry not playing: 'It would've been irresponsible to put him out there.'— Monte Poole (@MontePooleNBCS) April 22, 2016
The Warriors, with a 2-0 lead, are an overwhelming favorite to advance. Even without Curry, they’re better than the ready-for-vacation Rockets.
Houston could come together for a game and make the series closer, but that just adjusts the sliding scale of Curry’s readiness and Golden State’s need for him. If the Warriors need Curry in this series, they’ll probably get him.
For now, they don’t, so they won’t.
