The Warriors dominated third quarters all season long and have kicked it into another gear during the playoffs. Yet another third-quarter blitz saved the Warriors’ season on Monday night, when Golden State won the West and eliminated the Houston Rockets.

The Warriors rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit en route to a 101-92 win in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. Golden State seized the lead by outscoring Houston by 18 points in the third quarter. The Warriors are now plus-130 in third quarters during the playoffs, the highest overall scoring margin in a quarter by any team in a postseason during the shot clock era, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. The Warriors are plus-68 in third quarters during this season, including plus-35 in the past two games, when the Rockets really could have used Chris Paul’s calming presence.

After looking sloppy and discombobulated in the first half, the Warriors morphed back into one of the most explosive offenses in NBA history during the third quarter. Stephen Curry led the way with 14 points in the frame — only one fewer than the Rockets — and hit 4 of 5 3s, including one with 3:58 remaining in the quarter that gave Golden State the lead for good.
