But Thompson struck again, hitting a wide open 3 to leave the Warriors ahead by 10 with four minutes left.Harden scored 41 to lead the Rockets, who lost at home for the second time this postseason.“You’re not going to come in and just knock them out,” Houston coach Mike D’Antoni said. “There were too many times where we had mental lapses. We didn’t switch properly, turned the ball over and missed too many layups. We need to do a better job of staying up mentally.”Now the Rockets are left to regroup after losing their leg up in the homecourt advantage they worked all season for.“It’s nice to have home court,” D’Antoni said. “(But) we don’t have it. Now we’ve got to go get it.”Steph Curry added 18 for the Warriors, who are in the conference finals for a franchise-record fourth straight time. It’s Houston’s first trip since 2015 when Golden State won the series in five games.“I think he’s going to get even better as the series goes on, which is good for us,” Kerr said of Curry.The Warriors, who are the second seed in the West, opened a playoff series away from Oracle Arena for the first time since 2014 when they lost to the Los Angeles Clippers 4-3 in the opening round.Houston struggled to slow down Durant all night, and things got even worse when Trevor Ariza picked up his fifth foul with about 10 minutes left in the third with Golden State up by 3. Durant made two baskets for the Warriors around one by Chris Paul that left the Warriors up 73-68 a couple of minutes later.“He’s one of the best scorers ever,” D’Antoni said of Durant. “I thought he was extremely good. But we can withstand that. We can’t withstand turning the ball over and giving up so many wide open 3s.” Lineup change possible as LeBron, Cavs look to bounce back But if it were up to him, he would have done even more.Durant wasn’t happy with coach Steve Kerr when he took him out in late in the third quarter and loudly asked his coach why he was putting him on the bench. Durant, who played just more than 40 minutes, was asked if he’d prefer to play the entire 48 minutes.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“Probably so,” Durant said.Kerr acknowledged that he should have left him in at that point and raved about his performance after his fourth 30-point game this postseason.
