Two times The Q got extremely loud tonight: While Terry Rozier was shooting three free throws after JR Smith was called for a phantom foul on him; when Kyle Korver dived onto the floor between three Celtics players to try to save a loose ball. The roof was ready to blow off the place both times.

Injured Celtics guard Shane Larkin went through an individual workout Sunday and said he was less sore than expected in the aftermath. While Brad Stevens ruled him out for Game 4, Larkin is holding out hope for a return this series. "I feel like I'm pretty close. The biggest part is just being able to protect the shoulder from another blow like that, because another blow like that means more severe injury and surgery and all that," said Larkin. "So I don't want to have that happen. But, obviously, with the opportunity that we have, I want to be a part of that and help my team in any way I can. So hopefully I'll be out there soon."

Stephen Curry didn't begin Game 3 with a strong start. After a miss at the 2:46 mark of the second quarter, the Warriors star point guard was just 2-of-10 from the field and 1-of-7 from 3-point range. At that juncture, he had just five points. But the two-time NBA MVP then went on a blistering tear, hitting 11 of his next 12 field goal attempts, including four straight from 3-point range, giving him 35 points with 5:11 left in the fourth quarter.

Credit the Warriors' defense for stifling the Rockets at the rim, but Houston has also missed some easy shots at point-blank range. In fact, with 13 missed layups in the first half, the Rockets have already tied for their most in a game this postseason -- and they missed nine of those in the second quarter alone. All told, the Rockets shot just 43 percent (9-21) in the restricted area in the first half, tied for their worst in a half this postseason, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
