Game 3 between the Rockets and Warriors has been a highly expected one and the Rockets came on top. They got a much-needed win against the defending champions and once again we were able to witness a direct duel between Kevin Durant and James Harden.

Kevin Durant finished the game with 46 points which weren't enough against Harden and the Rockets. Even though Harden finished the game with 41 points, it was offensive rebounds and pure hustle which enable the Rockets to win the game.

In an interview after the game, Durant touched more on the main reasons for losing game 3 and he said it was the dominance Rockets had by grabbing offensive rebounds and getting those 50-50 loose balls. All of these aspects which they did really well turned into points and a win in game 3.

They definitely played with a lot more force, crashing the glass. They didn't get from what they do, they didn't run different plays, getting different guys involved, they just played their games and also beat us in 50-50 plays."
