LeBron, Cavs did whatever it took

"They're National Basketball Association players, and yeah they're new and whatnot, and Bron's wonderful, he played an unbelievable playoff run to date and just willed his team to his eighth straight Finals".

Now, the only question is who the Cavaliers will play for a chance at their second title in three years: The Rockets host Game 7 of the Western Conference finals against Golden State on Monday night, and the victor will host the opener of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

"It sucks because you know you could win this series if we just had one more playmaker", Gordon said, per ESPN's Tim MacMahon. It was a staggering sight, with no one struggling more than veteran swingman Trevor Ariza (0-for-12 overall, and 0-for-9 from beyond the arc). No, we've got the right formula.

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Houston Rockets 101-92 in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals to punch their ticket to a fourth consecutive meeting with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

The Warriors defense woke up in the second half, but Houston failed miserably at its greatest skill when it mattered most: seven-of-44 from three-point range in all, and say hello to your summertime.

According to the Westgate sportsbook in Las Vegas, the Cavaliers are +650 moneyline underdogs (bet $100 to win $650) against the Golden State Warriors this year, the longest odds one of James's teams has faced in his nine NBA Finals appearances. Twice, the Rockets had a chance in a second half; twice, the Warriors' "talent took over", as Kerr put it. "It's as simple as that".

"They have the experience, they have better players, they still get the three superstars".

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. "And with our team, there's just so much firepower, we're going to get going".

Kevon Looney has filled in for him the last two games but is also listed as questionable for Game 7 with sore toe on his left foot.

Hell hath no fury like the Golden State Warriors in the third quarter. "We've got three of the best shot makers in the league, and they all got hot at different points of the second half".

The same two teams met in the previous three Finals, with Golden State winning the title in 2015 and 2017 and Cleveland emerging as the champ in 2016. "We're where we set out to be and where we knew we could be at this point".

Thompson was clear that the mistakes he made before halftime on Monday night won't happen again.

The Warriors are a phenomenal team, but Monday night the game was there for the taking. Golden State has proven how hard it is to win even three consecutive championships, which hasn't happened since the Lakers did it at the beginning of this century. After they lost Game 5 to go down 3-2 he and his team-mates talked about how they were in a situation that was new to them.

The Rockets had double-digit leads in their last two games but the Dubs came back both times to win.
