Warriors return to Finals as Rockets go ice-cold in Game 7

Thompson For both the Warriors and Rockets Game 7 all comes down to 3-point shooting

Led by Steph Curry's wonderful 3-point shooting in the 3rd quarter & Durant's dominance in the 4th, the Warriors were too much for Harden and the Rockets to handle, who as a team shot a combined 7-44 from 3-point land.

Paul came up huge in Game 5, scoring 20 points in 38 minutes to help pace the Rockets to a crucial win.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the decisive Game 7 in the Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets NBA Western Conference final series, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. And because of that, the Cavs are considered heavy underdogs against the Warriors in the fourth iteration of their yearly Finals saga.

Reigning champions Golden State Warriors will play Cleveland Cavaliers in the National Basketball Association finals for the fourth successive year.

Stephen Curry had 29 points and Klay Thompson had 35 points.

"It was really one of the most freaky first halves of basketball that we've played since I've been here", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game.

D'Antoni praised his team after it was all over, refusing once again to measure them based exclusively on the results of this series and this postseason. The opportunity at hand, as a result, made the tension tangible even before tipoff.

Celtics upend Cavaliers, now within win of NBA Finals
As officials and other players intervened Celtics guard Terry Rozier raced into the fray and pushed Nance. The game was there for the taking, but the Cavs couldn't buy a shot when they needed it.

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. "All those hurdles and obstacles, we got over them, so it's an unbelievable feeling, man".

In one atrocious stretch during the third and four quarter, the Rockets missed 26 3-pointers in a row. 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.

"A big blow for us", Kerr said.

But Golden State shouldn't be in this position, where one high variance game could end its season and stop its chase for a second straight title before the championship round. The Warriors won the championship in 2015 and 2017, and Cleveland emerged victorious in 2016.

Paul received treatment around the clock in hopes of being able to come back for Game 7, but a Grade 2 hamstring strain typically takes at least two weeks to heal.

Curry scored 19 of his 27 points in the second half, when he also dished out half of his 10 assists. He went to call it "a chapter we need to figure out and finish this story".
