The Rockets hit very many 3s in the first half

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

14-18!

It's halftime of the Rockets-Warriors game in Houston, and the game has been BANANAS so far. The Warriors had 62 first-half points on 58 percent shooting, including a Stephen Curry half-court buzzer-beater heading into the break. They still entered halftime down down 15. Fifteen! Why? Tom Haberstroh:

The Rockets hit FOURTEEN threes in the first half on just eighteen attempts. 77 points overall. That's pretty much the only way you can give up 58 percent shooting and 62 points in a half and still lead by double-digits. James Harden hit 4-4, Jeremy Lin hit 3-4, and the bench didn't miss from downtown. The Houston franchise record for three-point makes in an entire game is 17. Gotta figure they'll destroy that mark tonight, though it'd be kinda funny if they didn't.
