Sharing over shooting: How the Warriors passed by the Rockets

NBA Finals Le Bron James will lead the Cavaliers against the Warriors

Stephen Curry scored 14 points in the third quarter, helping the Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets and advance to the NBA Finals. After two Game 7's the NBA Finals are set!

Love has struggled throughout the post-season, averaging just 13.9 points per game on 38.8% shooting from the field, a sharp drop off from the 17.6 points on 45.8% shooting and 9.3 rebounds he averaged per game during the regular season.

Coach Steve Kerr lamented that Golden State's first half on Monday night was "one of the most freakish first halves" his team has played since he's been with the Warriors and joked that he thought of resigning at halftime before getting serious. LeBron's detractors often ding the four-time MVP for his 3-5 career record in the NBA Finals, but looking at the pre-series odds provides some useful context.

On the other, the best player of this era and maybe any era. The Cavaliers turned it around the following season and won their first championship in 2016 beating the Warriors. He's going up against a great team with FOUR superb players.

It's no secret that the Warriors are overwhelming favorite over the Cavaliers in the upcoming NBA Finals. Curry could very easily torch them and make this a short series.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Golden State Warriors will be heading into the NBA Finals to face the Cleveland Cavaliers following an intense Western Conference Finals series.

However, when Harden refused the offer and Green withdrew his hands, the Houston man shot him an incensed look - sparking outrage from supporters on social media. But it all fell apart in the final two games. Cleveland is an inferior defensive team to Houston, and Durant should have more opportunities to make things happen, both for himself and for his teammates.

As the debate about Golden State being a potential dynasty rages on, general manager Bob Myers is not interested in talking about that possibility.

"I'm not going to say zero percent chance", Jackson said on a conference call.

The Cavs lost Game 1 of their series with the Pacers and Game 1 with the Celtics this year and overcame those deficits in what LeBron James deemed "feel-out games".

"One of the most challenging seasons I've had", said James, who may be playing the best basketball of his life right now at the end of his 15th season. Those teams were much more evenly matched with stacked squads of talent.
