Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka and Luke Walton talked to guys at today's draft workout. The Lakers had St. John's Shamorie Ponds, Nevada's Jordan Caroline, Missouri's Jordan Barnett, Oregon State's Drew Eubanks, St. Mary's Jock Landale and Arkansas' Daryl Macon in for a workout.

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.

Make that now a 10-0 run to begin the third for the Warriors after Kevin Durant drains a triple. Durant has a game-high 20 points thus far. The defending champs have a 21-point lead.

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.

Stephen Curry's 3-point woes continue early on in Game 3 against the Rockets, as the Warriors star shot 1-of-6 from beyond the arc in the opening quarter. His five missed 3-pointers ties for his most misses from long distance in a quarter of a playoff game in his career. (He has done so three times, including tonight, according to ESPN Stats & Information.)

Golden State went on an 11-0 run to end the first quarter. They lead Houston 31-22.

Warriors coaches spend the first 45 seconds of a timeout surrounding Stephen Curry. No doubt the staff was addressing Curry's matador defense early which has led to straight line drive layups for Trevor Ariza who twice left Curry in his wake. Curry also missed his first three as the Oracle crowd surged with hopeful anticipation that the drought from deep might be over early.

Ex-Texas A&M center Tyler Davis told ESPN's The Undefeated that he is staying in the NBA Draft and forgoing his senior season. "I loved my time at Texas A&M. I love Coach Kennedy, my coaches and my teammates. I will always be an Aggie, and am thankful I was a part of their program. I just want to start my career as a pro and have decided to stay in the 2018 NBA Draft with the goal of being in the NBA next season," Davis told The Undefeated.
