  • NBA Playoffs Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors

The Warriors became the first team in National Basketball Association history to come back from double-digit halftime leads in multiple elimination games in the same series, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Check out this end of game action in this Fantastic Finish.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Cleveland Cavaliers will play the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. He had a 27-point performance in their Game 4 win over the Warriors, keying a rally from 12 down in the fourth quarter, and he scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half of their Game 5 victory.

D'Antoni added that when the Warriors went on runs the Rockets were looking for threes to "keep them at bay", but were unable to connect on the shots. Durant led the Warriors in those outings in which the former league MVP averaged 28.5 points.

James Harden just didn't care. The Houston Rockets and Warriors face off in Game 7 at 9 p.m. Monday at the Toyota Center in Houston.

In Game 6, coach Steve Kerr let Thompson loose, and the result was a dominant 35-point showing on 9-for-14 3-point shooting. "Forty-eight minutes, it lasts a long time and there's so many opportunities to get yourself going as a team".

But because this is Golden State, the team that just two nights earlier did pretty much THE EXACT SAME THING, we knew why the urgency wasn't there. The Rockets had a ten point lead going into halftime.

It all comes down to Game 7. Golden State seized the lead by outscoring Houston by 18 points in the third quarter. Paul has averaged 21 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game.

"The second half was unbelievable", Curry said.

James Harden and Eric Gordon did all they could in both Game 6 and 7 to get the Rockets in position to win but without Chris Paul, they missed a closer to bring them home. You've got to play, got to win. But there's always the caveat - the reason why the Cavs swept the No. 1-seeded Raptors after struggling to get past the Pacers in the first round, and the reason why they defeated a, by all accounts, superior Celtics team in the Eastern Conference finals.

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.
