Warriors-Rockets Game 7

Golden State will host the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2018 NBA Finals with Game 1 set for Thursday night at 9:00 p.m. ET.

And D'Antoni, Harden and Paul go into the offseason with the same whispers, the same doubters wondering about their readiness for the magnitude of these sorts of moments. For example, if James Harden and Steph Curry play one-on-one and Harden wins 21-15, that means he is +6 while Curry is -6. We had an opportunity tonight and last game without Chris.

The veteran swingman Iguodala, plagued by a lower leg contusion he suffered in a collision with Harden in Game 3, missed the final four games of the series. We just didn't have the same energy that we had in the first half or the pace.

The absence of Chris Paul was sorely felt as the Rockets' reliably fertile 3-point ground suddenly turned barren and sour. "It's what you play for, to be in a situation where you're one win away from going to the finals". We've got the right formula.

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. We've got to do a little bit better and it would be nice if they would help out a little bit, but it seems like they're not. He's probably more devastated than anybody.

"I took a tip from some PGA guys - when they're out there on the course and it gets kind of logjammed on a couple of holes they've got to slow themselves down between shots", Curry told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Roth had a long relationship with British actress Claire Bloom but their five-year marriage ended in divorce in 1995. Roth, however, often demurred when it was suggested that he should be defined as an American Jewish writer.

"I can't wait 'til Tuesday", Durant said. While the Rockets played like desperate wolves, scratching and clawing for every last morsel of carrion to ensure their survival for one day more, the Warriors looked like the chicken from "Moana" had just naively wandered into the Toyota Center in a pair of sneakers.

That just means James Harden will have to heighten his game to a level he's never reached especially on a stage like this. I thought we had enough, and I still do.

The Rockets had a historically poor shooting night in Game 7.

Leading this team-with its myriad roster issues-to a conference title is a massive achievement for James and one of the best illustrations of his legendary skill.
