Kevin Garnett’s Spine-Tingling NBA Finals Hype Video Will Give Fans Chills

  • Chris Paul

The Warriors outscored the Rockets by 33-15 in the third quarter, surging into a double-digit lead that they never looked like surrendering.

Kerr later said there had been no hint of panic at halftime as the Warriors trailed. "It usually happens at some point during the game". "We just didn't have the same energy that we had in that first half or the pace".

Still, we weren't quite prepared for just how hugely Golden State would favored. 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.

"It's a team game", James said.

There was plenty of standing around, waiting for Harden or Paul (injured for Games 6 and 7) to do something. "I don't know. It's tough". Regardless, this is about as weird of a postgame story as you're going to find. The one thing the Rockets desperately needed in game seven was mid range shooting, the very thing Paul brought them. "Obviously, thankfully tonight with the way the first half went, it was like clockwork, so it was good".

Cavs-Warriors NBA Finals official schedule set
The pressure continued in the second, with Clint Capela outstanding on defence for Houston with a string of rebounds. The Warriors dominated third quarters all season long and have kicked it into another gear during the playoffs.

From midway through the second quarter to midway through the fourth quarter, the Rockets missed 27 straight 3-point shots.

"It hurts bad", Rockets forward Trevor Ariza said.

From Jeff Green (19 points in Game 7) to Tristan Thompson (nine rebounds) to George Hill (plus-24 rating) and J.R. Smith (12 points), the Cavs couldn't get there without contributions from the "others", as Shaquille O'Neal always describes role players. The Warriors posted a plus-68 scoring margin in the third quarters for the series. That's tied for the largest point spread in a Finals game since 1991, according to ESPN Stats & Information. And when you get to the Finals, that's really, really hard to picture in your own mind how a team could win. Cleveland's Kevin Love is in the concussion protocol and will need to complete a series of tests before he's cleared to return, and Golden State's Andre Iguodala - a former NBA Finals MVP - wasn't able to finish the Warriors-Rockets series because of a bone bruise in his leg. So LeBron's going back to the Finals for the eighth year in a row.

The Warriors have been installed by Las Vegas bookmakers as heavy favorites to retain their National Basketball Association crown as they face the Cavaliers for a 4th straight year starting in Game 1 on Thursday, May 31 (Friday, June 1 in Manila).

Curry and Kevin Durant, meanwhile, played like the MVPs they've been, at least in the second half. That's what you want. Unless, of course, your best player is the best player. That makes Steph Curry and company easily the largest favorites since 2002, which is as far back as SportsOddsHistory's records go.
