Why the Cleveland Cavaliers will win the NBA Finals

Cavaliers: Shot just 2 of 17 from 3-point range in the first half, making three of their first 22 shots from long range before James and Green connected on back-to-back attempts midway through the third quarter. "The second half was unbelievable".

"This is the biggest difference that I remember between two teams heading into the Finals in my time in the NBA", Van Gundy told reporters Tuesday while on a conference call.

Curry led the Warriors' third-quarter attack, scoring 14 of his team's 33 points in the frame and giving Golden State a 76-67 advantage entering the fourth quarter.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni meanwhile attempted to put a fearless face on a loss which came after his team had battled into a 3-2 lead earlier in the series.

"So, the next round is going to be LeBron James, somebody I can match up with". "There's no quit in them".

"We've got our bumps throughout the season", he continued. "That's what their trademark is; we know it and it's not like it's a secret".

The Golden State Warriors haven't played since Monday and are coming off a seven-game series with the Houston Rockets.

"One half of basketball".




Film-wise, those two games are meaningless now.

Curry - with his wife, Riley and her 3-year-old sister, Ryan, by his side - said he was just happy to put the "stressful but fun" night behind him.

The Rockets swarmed over the vaunted Warriors offense to keep the visitors firmly on the back foot. But the Warriors proved that they are exactly what their team's name implies, taking the decisive game seven in Houston 101-92.

Durant missed three free throws in a row early on as Houston gradually pulled into a 24-19 first quarter lead. If we had Chris, if he was out there, we'd have been playing on Thursday.

While Clint Capela (20 points, nine rebounds) and Tucker (14 points, 12rebounds) delivered on the interior, the Rockets were undone by theirineffective perimeter options.

This wasn't all peaches for Golden State, either. And ... they're going to have to be lights-out from the 3-point line to have a chance to win a game.

Head coach Steve Kerr said the injury, originally described as a bone bruise, had no defined timetable for recovery and is typically a matter of an individual's pain threshold. If you don't know what that means but can add, consider they were +250 underdogs last season, were +180 dogs in 2016, and +190 in 2015 (lost the series without Kyrie Irving or Love, 4-2).

"We're still without Andre, which is a big blow for us", Kerr said before Monday's Game 7 at Houston.
