Back in March, I wrote a piece for Hoops Habit ranking Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry‘s top 30 career moments on his 30th birthday. When he turns 31 next year, I think I know what will be added to the list.

The Warriors beat the Houston Rockets in Game 3 by a franchise playoff-record 41 points, winning 126-85. As is the case in most routes at Oracle Arena, Curry was at the center of it. He scored 35 points on 13-of-23 shooting, with 26 of those points and 10 of those makes coming in the second half.

In our Game 3 takeaways, we look at three different aspects of Curry’s instantly classic performance, and what they mean for this series moving forward.
