"We allow one of those a series," Green said Saturday, per The Athletic's Anthony Slater. "We've had our one. Now it's time to lock in."
The Warriors were uncharacteristically poor Wednesday night.
Stephen Curry was 1-of-8 from three-point range, and Klay Thompson shot 3-of-11 from the field. Curry (16 points) and Kevin Durant (38 points) were the only Golden State players to score in double figures.
On defense, the Warriors struggled to slow down the Rockets offense despite James Harden making just three of his 15 three-point attempts. The trio of Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker and Eric Gordon combined to score 68 points.
The question in Game 3 on Sunday night at Oracle Arena is how much of that game is representative of the series as a whole.
Because they have such an explosive offense, it's easy to forget how good Houston's defense has been. The Rockets ranked sixth in defensive rating (103.8) during the regular season. Perhaps head coach Mike D'Antoni has cracked the code for the Warriors' "Hamptons Five" lineup.

The Hamptons Five was outscored by 18 points in 22 minutes in Game 2. Worst points differential since KD joined the team, via @ESPNStatsInfo. The Hamptons Five outscored the Rockets by 2 in 17 minutes in Game 1 and outscored the Pelicans by 54 in 54 minutes in the West Semis.
Of course, it would be hasty to overreact after just one game, which is why Game 3 will be instructive for how the rest of the conference finals will likely unfold.
