These two teams already met earlier this week for their second game with the Warriors taking a 2-0 lead against the Rockets in the playoffs. Of course, fans of the Warriors, especially those of its star player Stephen Curry were particularly worried about the second game especially since the athlete suffered a sprained ankle in Game 1.
But, as noted by Curry, he is still determined to be an active player on the team's roster despite the injury. However, he admitted that this is something that he and the team must look into first.
"Right now I don't see a scenario where I'll be out," he told USA Today. "Obviously, of it's not right and at risk of further injury or whatnot, that's the only think that I think we have to worry about."
"Pain tolerance and all that stuff, I kind of know what I can deal with on the court, but you don't want anything more serious to happen favoring an ankle or whatnot," he added. "So that's what we'll pay attention to the next few days.
