Curry Expected to Return for Game 4

Stephen Curry Golden State Warriors NBA Playoffs

James Harden and the Houston Rockets did what many assumed impossible: defeat the Golden State Warriors in an opening round playoff game. Sure, Stephen Curry did not play due to that ankle injury, but let’s not take anything away from the completely dysfunctional Rockets. While there is no doubt that they hope Curry misses Game 4, that does not look likely as the probable MVP looks set to return Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • UNDER is 11-5 in the previous 16 meetings in Houston.
  • The Rockets are 7-1 ATS in their last eight Sunday games.
  • UNDER is 6-0 in the Warriors’ last six road games.

Online book Bovada currently has the Warriors tabbed as 9.5-point road favorites for their Game 4 showdown. As far as the total is concerned, the shop is offering OVER 217 at -115 and UNDER 217 at -105.

Curry tweaked his ankle in Game 1 and missed games two and three but the Warriors bring a 2-1 series lead into Sunday’s showdown. Reports have emerged that Steph will indeed be back on the floor Sunday after he had stated that he was feeling game-ready after practice.

"I think I can play through a little bit of discomfort and whatnot, especially in a playoff situation," Curry said.

The Warriors had gone 5-0 straight up and 4-1 against the spread in the first five meetings (three regular season, two playoff) between the two teams entering Game 3.

It took a late James Harden winner for the Rockets to prevail 97-96 in Thursday’s Game 3, but that should give the team some optimism and renewed confidence ahead of Game 4.
