Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

  • LeBron James followed up his jaw-dropping block with an epic full-court staredown

Houston missed 27 straight 3s at one point during the game.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets, 101-92, in Game 7 on Monday to advance to their fourth straight NBA Finals.

After the game, The Associated Press reports: Stephen Curry said someone asked him if it's still special to get to the finals when it's the fourth time in a row.

"Yes", he said, "because it's really hard".

Stephen Curry urged others to not "disrespect" the Cleveland Cavaliers' supporting cast while LeBron James nearly singlehandedly led them to the NBA Finals. The Warriors found another gear while the Rockets showed how much they missed Chris Paul.

"I'll be available for at least four more games", James said, "and we'll see what happens". The Warriors trailed by 10 at halftime in Game 6 and 11 at intermission on Monday in Game 7.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala recently got a second opinion on his injured left knee and is still trying to figure out what's wrong, league sources told ESPN.

Their early lead provided even more false security for a team that already had to work without Paul in Games 6 and 7; that right hamstring strain suffered in the final minute of the Rockets' Game 5 win ending his season prematurely. "When we're on our game, we can get up and down and our defense too, when we're in passing lanes, creating turnovers, we're the best team in the world running the break".

In the end, the Rockets went 7-for-44 (15.9 percent) from 3-point range, while shooting 29-for-46 (63.0 percent) on 2-point shots.

Eric Gordon made a three at 6:43 in the second quarter to put Houston up 42-28.

"A big blow for us", Kerr said. He was one of the first to truly unlock the value of the 3-point line and used the pick-and-roll to tremendous effect in his "Seven Seconds or Less" offense.

The Warriors outscored the Rockets by 33-15 in the third quarter, surging into a double-digit lead that they never looked like surrendering. As a result, the Warriors managed to climb out of a 3-2 series hole.

Golden State's players don't splinter in such moments. Not only did Steph Curry come out on fire, hitting four threes-pointers while scoring 14 of his 27 points in that soul-sucking way that only he can.

Warriors: Curry went to the locker room with trainers between the first and second quarters, but returned to the bench with about 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter and soon returned to the game. Making his first start since the first-round opener against Indiana, Green scored 19 points and added eight rebounds - the star of James' starless supporting cast.

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