Two games, Games 6 and 7.
"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. I can't think of a bigger gap from a team perspective".
"I'm still learning, still growing and figuring things out".
"It's been great to come out of the locker room kind of focused, locked in, made some shots, get some stops and just have fun". Why did they stop attacking the basket after the first half? The Rockets missed 27 consecutive 3-pointers and went 7-for-44 from downtown in the loss.
"It's been a whirlwind", James said after Game 7 in Boston. "Like it's-[James" teammates are] National Basketball Association players, and yeah they're new and what-not and "Bron is awesome, [and] he played an unbelievable playoff run to date and has willed his team to his eighth straight Finals and all that, which is unbelievable to think about the consistency and the longevity and just the level of greatness that he's shown in the Eastern Conference".
The first game of the NBA Finals is on Thursday, May 31st at 9 p.m.
Both teams rallied from 3-2 series deficits in the conference finals.
"This is a special moment", Curry said.
"Harden opened the game 4 of 5 from the floor but finished 12 of 29 for thegame". According to reports, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue revealed that Love's status for Game 1 of the Finals is still unclear, telling reporters he's "not sure" if the 10-year veteran will be cleared. The same two teams met in the previous three Finals, with Golden State winning the title in 2015 and 2017 and Cleveland emerging as the champ in 2016. That person is Lebron James and that should be good enough for the Los Angeles Lakers to pursue him in free agency.
"Like this series, Trevor Ariza, PJ Tucker, James [Harden], [Chris Paul], they brought the best out of me", Durant told ESPN. That's what you want. And just because a guy is not playing well, you can't give up on a guy.
James Herbert: If Andre Iguodala is out or limited, LeBron James could will the Cavs to a victory or two. First, without Paul, the Rockets were missing their most reliable midrange player; someone who at times had his way against the Jazz in the second-round series because of his ability to neutralize a club that was generally happy surrender that sort of lower-percentage look.
"I'm just trying to play in a way that will help us win a championship".
