Warriors Take 2-0 Series Lead With 115-106 Win Over Rockets Without Curry

The Golden State Warriors received bad news early in the day when they learned Stephen Curry would not play in Game 2, but it didn't seem to affect them much on the court. Golden State, led by a playoff career-high 34 points from Klay Thompson, controlled this game from start to finish and beat the Houston Rockets 115-106, giving them a 2-0 series lead.

The Warriors jumped out on Houston early, going on a 15-4 run after the Rockets scored the first four points of the game. That set the tempo for the rest of the night as Golden State led from that point on.

Andre Iguodala had a big game off the bench to go along with Thompson's sharpshooting, scoring 18 points while playing excellent defense. Draymond Green also nearly put up a triple-double with 12 points, 13 rebounds, and eight assists.

James Harden led the way for the Rockets again, dropping 25 points to go along with 11 assists. Dwight Howard put up a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Game 3 of the series will be in Houston on Thursday. Tip off is scheduled for 9:30 pm ET on TNT. Curry is expected to play in the game.
