Finally, Golden State had enough. The Rockets scored more points than any team ever has in Toyota Center. The benches had long been emptied with the Rockets on their way to a 140-109 blowout Tuesday night. But the Warriors finished the game doing whatever was necessary to stop the rain of 3-pointers, fouling intentionally and often, until the 3-pointer the Rockets could not take was nearly as notable as the 23 they made.
“We were not going to lay down,” Golden State coach Mark Jackson said. “I’m an old-school basketball player and an old-school coach. If you can’t appreciate that, that’s on you. If you’re going to try to get the record, we’re going to stop it.”
