Meanwhile, Durant admitted the Warriors are "not invincible" after they were demolished 127-105 in Game 2 as the Rockets leveled the series 1-1.
James Harden-led Rockets have stifled Curry in the first two games, which led to talks about the guard potentially struggling owing to his recent return from a long-term knee injury. "It changes the game and it changes the way we play and we know that".
"No, shit happens", Durant said.
Curry looked to be getting his groove back after impressing upon his comeback, but he has not had the same impact in the first two games against the Rockets. Curry went 1 for 8 from three in Wednesday's Game 2, yet for some reason-there's next to no media criticism surrounding Curry. He was outscored by Rockets' role players PJ Tucker and Trevor Ariza, netting only 16 points, shooting only 36 percent from the field, and making only one of eight 3-point attempts. Eric Gordon hit two big threes and that kind of settled them in. "Those shots did it for them". He finished with 16 points but never established the remarkable range that can stretch opposing defenses to the breaking point.
Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said there was no major change in strategy - just more intensity and better execution from a Houston team that led the league with 65 regular-season wins.
As the series shifts to the West Coast, the Golden State Warriors will have to figure out the best place to put Curry. With that being said, I think the Warriors take back momentum with a win at home, but I think the value is with the Rockets and the points in this one.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr said the Rockets' energy made all the difference.
"They were desperate tonight and played like it, and we weren't and it showed", Kerr said.

Warriors: It was Durant's 19th straight playoff game with at least 20 points.
Houston connected on three-of-10 from three-point range in the first period while the Warriors were zero-for-seven and coughed up seven turnovers. The loss snapped a 10-game winning streak in such games.
"We still made some mistakes that we can get better at", Harden said. "You can look at it any way you want. and parcel it out, but it didn't matter who we had out there tonight we got beat". The Warriors cut it to 74-64 with five quick points from Durant, but the Rockets opened it back up to 89-72 when Gordon made an off-balance layup before crashing to the court while being fouled and made the free throw.
The Rockets were up by 16 to start the fourth quarter but Golden State got within 98-86 with about 10 minutes left.
Just a notch above Curry's 3-point shooting percentage Wednesday.
Curry finished with 16 points and Thompson was 3 for 11 for his eight points.
When Curry was out of the lineup, the Warriors ran their offense through Durant and his mid-range mastery.
"He's been fantastic. He's making plays. We're in pretty good shape right now".
