OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) --Splash Brother Klay Thompson rained threes to lead the Warriors to a big win over the Houston Rockets Wednesday night.
For the Rockets, the end came swiftly, as Steph Curry cheered on the sidelines.

"I felt it from before the tipoff, we had great focus in the locker room, we did not want to make a trip halfway across the country, so it was a whole team effort tonight," Thompson said.
"It was obviously a game with a lot of joy and a lot of good plays from various people and Steph was having a great time," head coach Steve Kerr said.
Fans can breathe a sigh of relief after the team's big win at Oracle Arena, even without Curry.
More than 19,000 people packed the arena, wearing bright gold shirts.
Without Curry, it was Thompson who led the way and the series win was a team effort. "We have to be more solid, which we have been. Last couple games in particular and it's good for our guys' confidence. I think what pleases me the most is that every guy on our roster contributed in this series," Kerr said.
Curry is not only heavily favored to win the MVP trophy again, but there's word he could get all the votes. This would be the first unanimous MVP victory ever.
Fans can't wait to see him back in action. "Whoever we play next round we need Steph, definitely. And beyond that to get the championship," Warriors fan Willie Jow said.
The Dubs sent the Rockets home and now fans are thinking ahead.
"I think it was incredible without Curry doing what they did, they came together as a team. I can't wait 'til the next playoff game," San Francisco resident Eduardo Segura said.
The Warriors will play the winner of the Portland Trailblazers-LA Clippers series.
Curry is out with a knee injury and is letting it heal before he plays again.
The rest of the team stepped up big time and the final score was 114 to 81.
