Anthony Davis wiped some of the bitter taste of the team's sweep at the hands of Golden State three years ago in a 119-100 win to cut the Warriors series lead to 2-1.
As good as the Rockets were in Game 3 on offense, it was the defense that really made the difference.
Game 4 is set for Sunday in New Orleans.
But pulling the strings was Rajon Rondo. Kevin Durant scored 22 points for the Warriors, who never led by more than a single point.
Stephen Curry didn't exactly build on his strong postseason debut last Tuesday, tallying 19 points, six rebounds, two assists, four steals and two blocks in 29 minutes. At times, plenty of people thought they weren't even the favorites to win the title. "Guys made shots, we got to the free-throw line today and we capitalized at the line and when we're making shots and playing great defensively and holding our opponents to 100, we can score 125 every night".
While Curry, Green and Durant looked a bit ticked that the series was at least going to be a little harder than they expected, the two-time MVP said the defending champs are still in a prime spot. As in Game 2, Rondo once again had a heated exchange with Warriors forward Draymond Green.
The majority of the second quarter didn't look much better than the first for Golden State.
"That was the message: We can't lose this game", said Anthony Davis, who finished with a game-high 33 points and 18 rebounds. "Game 4 will be the toughest game we've ever had". The Warriors were able to keep things close through two quarters despite being outplayed on both ends, but folded in the 3rd when they were outscored 31-16.
"Because I was on the Warriors' bench, it made it scary for tonight". It proves that they are more than capable of competing in this series.
"They brought the necessary force to the game on their home floor", said Golden State head coach Steve Kerr. Klay Thompson led their comeback effort, pouring in 20 points in the second quarter alone. The Warriors shot just 36% in the opening quarter, while the Pelicans shot an excellent 52%. He was famously suspended for Game 5 of the 2016 Finals after committing multiple flagrant fouls, and this season he finished second in the league in both technical fouls (15) and ejections (3). Stephen Curry, in his first start in almost six weeks since injuring his MCL, shot 6-for-19 and scored only 19 points.
