An terrible start was followed by three quarters of utter dominance, spot-on shot-making and handsome defense - even against one of the game's greatest and hardest to stop in Houston's James Harden.
Klay Thompson was sensational, scoring 21 of his game-high 35 points in the second half, including seven of his nine three-pointers in the contest.
The Warriors opened the third with an 11-0 burst to go ahead 62-61 on Curry's 3 at 9:17, also getting a pair of 3s from Thompson and a dunk by Durant.
The Rockets, who led the league with 65 regular season wins, ran roughshod over Golden State in the opening quarter as they raced to a 39-22 lead.
"I thought Klay was wonderful tonight, not just for 35 points and the nine threes, but his defense", Kerr said. They need to do Sunday what they did in that first Game 7 - the win starts on the defensive end, making LeBron work for his buckets and not letting the supporting cast get rolling. The Warriors did not win this game because they wanted it more than the Rockets and I think this incredible series has made clear that there is no gap in desire between these two teams.
"Obviously we want to have him", Rockets forward PJ Tucker said.
"More than anything, I feel bad for Chris", Kerr said. Houston committed four quick turnovers. "(If) we take the same focus and execute the game plan like we should I have all the confidence in the world in this team".

Saturday night's game takes place on the Warriors' home court, where they have only lost once in their last 17 playoff games.
Game 7 is going to be one of the all-time greats, as a number of players will put their legacies on the line with the hopes that it'll culminate in a trip to the NBA Finals.
And again, the game is in Houston at the Toyota Center, where the Rockets have gone 2-1 in the series.
Chris Paul will be listed as "questionable" for Game 7, according to Houston Rockets Head Coach Mike D'Antoni. But when you lose two games in a row, are facing elimination, and consider yourself the best team in the National Basketball Association, there's an overwhelming amount of pressure to overcome whether they want to acknowledge it or not.
Instead, they scored just 45 points in the first half, couldn't get into any sort of rhythm offensively, and failed to make a field goal in the final minute of regulation.
