Stephen Curry suggested he wouldn’t play Game 3.

Unlike Game 2 – when the Warriors star expected to play but didn’t – Curry was right.

Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area:

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.
