Live playoff updates: Warriors vs. Rockets, Game 4 on Tuesday night

If the Warriors are to grab a commanding 3-1 lead against the Rockets, they’ll have to do so without forward Andre Iguodala, who was ruled out Tuesday with what’s being called a left lateral leg contusion. Iguodala’s absence could be a huge one as he’s been key to their defensive efforts thus far.
The Warriors expect to face a lot more resistance from the Rockets than they got in Game 3 Sunday when Golden State set a postseason franchise record with a 41-point victory, 126-85. The Rockets’ loss was also their most lopsided in franchise history.
The good news for the Rockets is they’ve responded to their previous three postseason losses with resounding victories in the next game.
By winning Sunday, the Warriors also set an NBA record with their 16th straight postseason victory at home, eclipsing the Chicago Bulls’ 15-game streak from 1990-91.

Stephen Curry performing at or near the level he displayed in Game 3 would go a long way toward another Warriors win. Curry, who had hit just three of his 20 3-point attempts in the first 2 1/2 games of the series, erupted for four 3-pointers in the second half on his way to a spectacular 35-point night.
