The Houston Rockets won Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Golden State Warriors in overtime, and a couple of late fouls had a lot to do with the extra period.
Houston scored its final four points in regulation on made free throws. Both fouls were incurred on plays that had Kerr scratching his head about, as he shared on Sunday speaking with the media.
Aside from the two careless fouls, Golden State actually played stellar defense in the final five minutes of regulation. So, these two careless fouls stand out all the more as egregious mistakes.
As we know, Houston did tie the game up and then won by five points in overtime, claiming their first victory in this series. Now we’ll see if Kerr can get his Warriors to play with some more discipline in Game 4.
