Stephen Curry expects to play in game four vs Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets shocked a lot of people when they managed to win game three of their first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors.

Most experts around the league completely expected the Warriors to sweep James Harden and co, and even with Stephen Curry missing for the last game, Golden State were still fancied to get the win.

That didn't happen, though, thanks to Harden's excellent performance as the series moved to Houston. However, don't expect that to be the case in game four, as Curry expects to return.

Speaking after the Warriors practice on Friday as they get ready for the second game in Texas, Curry reportedly said he would be very surprised if he doesn't start on Sunday.

If the Warriors can get Stephen Curry back at anywhere near his best then the Rockets will find it hard to get anything out of the rest of this series.

With Curry in their starting lineup, Golden State is just far too much for Houston to handle - as evidenced by the fact that game one - which Curry played in - was a 26-point blowout.

So, well done to Houston for winning a game no one thought they would get, but it is very likely that is their last win of the season.
