James Leads Cleveland Past Celtics And Into Finals

LeBron James slammed the door shut on Boston’s title hopes in Game 7

LeBron James slammed the door shut on Boston’s title hopes in Game 7

"We've got three of the best shot makers in the league, and they all got hot at different points of the second half".

Tucker made one of two free throws and the teams exchanged layups before Golden State scored nine straight points, with two threes from Curry, to take a 64-61 lead. In addition, Thompson was already on three fouls within four minutes of the first quarter. He'll be hard-pressed to prevail against the Western Conference foe in the next round, where he's 3-5 for his career, but that doesn't make his streak less impressive.

D'Antoni is a "big ideas" guy. Multiple games now in TD Garden, held them under 100, three games in the 80s - but he still scored 35. We know where we have to go.

But as Paul sat there watching the Warriors' 101-92 win unfold at the Toyota Center, his hamstring holding him back and his voice only carrying so far from the sideline, he was likely thinking the same thing as the rest of the viewing public: How could these Rockets go this cold?

Golden State are the overwhelming favourites to defend their crown and make it a third win over Cleveland in four years. They missed 27 consecutive shots from the three-point and finished seven for 44 from distance, setting an National Basketball Association record for misses in one game. It was obvious to anyone watching that they should continue to attack the paint. Boston was 7-for-39 from three-point range, with Rozier missing all 10 of his attempts. Golden State seized the lead by outscoring Houston by 18 points in the third quarter.

It's not the one they want. "It's been good, it's been bad".

On the other, the best player of this era and maybe any era. When those breaks were over, there were no major changes to the way the Rockets were playing.

When your supporting cast consists of a concussed Kevin Love, J.R. Smith and George Hill, there's nearly zero room for a night off.

Hell hath no fury like the Golden State Warriors in the third quarter. The Rockets missed 27 consecutive 3-pointers and went 7-for-44 from downtown in the loss. If you look at sections of the box score, there is absolutely no reason Houston should have lost. They forced the Warriors into mistakes, and they made a lot of them - 10 turnovers and 11 offensive rebounds given up in the first 24 minutes. Yet when they needed buckets the most, they completely avoided that area of the floor. That said, there always has to be a Plan B because sometimes shots don't fall.

"The Rockets fashioned their halftime lead on effort, both defensively and on the glass, but when their offense collapsed in the third quarter, their verve dissipated". When that happens, there has to be something else a team can rely on.

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. James is now 6-2 in Game 7 situations after losing his first two. With hustle and three-point shooting, the Rockets raced out to the lead and kept adding to it as the home crowd roared.
