Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors, an encore presentation

In response to Kerr's comments, Thompson said the Warriors were not anxious because they were more than capable of making an 11-point lead vanish within minutes.

"First of all, they've done that all year against everybody", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said of the Warriors' third-quarter surge.

In the regular season, the Houston Rockets made an NBA-record 1,256 threes on a record 3,470 attempts - that's 15.3 threes per game on 36.2 percent shooting.

Game 1 is Thursday in Oakland at 6 p.m.

Houston gave them a much bigger test than the Warriors have had in quite some time and this series was their first with three losses since the Cavaliers won the 2016 finals 4-3.

History may note that from the beginning of the season, National Basketball Association fans bemoaned what felt like a near certainty that, in the 223 days between the Cavaliers tipping off the National Basketball Association season on October 17 and the Warriors closing out the Houston Rockets on Monday night, we'd see a tetralogy for Warriors-Cavaliers.

"You've got to appreciate the moment", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said.

Needing not only all their firepower but also 27 straight misses by the Rockets during an epic cold streak from 3-point range, the Warriors rallied to keep alive their hopes for a repeat. Late in the playoffs guys are exhausted, sometimes their legs aren't there and that leads to shots flattening out and, in the end, not going in.

"We want to win the title, and obviously that's probably going through the Warriors at some point", Morey said.

"We just didn't have that extra juice that we needed", Harden said.

"I just tried to remind them that at halftime it was an 11-point game, and that's two minutes". Gordon shot 2 of 12 from 3-point range, slightly better than Harden's 2of 13. Yet another missed opportunity for Paul, who has never been to the NBA Finals in his long and storied career. We know where we have to go. Had they won Sunday, they would have been the second-youngest Finals team since the advent of the shot clock.

"Much respect to the Houston Rockets for bringing the best out of us and making this an incredible series and pushing us to the brink", Durant said."You've got to give respect to them and the great season that they had". But that would be Boston's last basket for more than five minutes while Cleveland went on a 15-2 run to put the game away.

Their main trouble in the second half, though, came from behind the arc.

After being down by 10 at halftime of Game 6, the Warriors trailed by 11 entering the third quarter on Monday night.

If there is anything to look forward to, it is the fact that there will be some very significant names on the free agent market this offseason and the Rockets would appear to be a prime destination.
