LeBron makes it 8 straight after superstar showing in Game 7

LeBron makes it 8 straight after superstar showing in Game 7

The Warriors held the Rockets to 25 points in the second half, a team record for fewest points allowed in any half of a playoff game. The NBA superstar and his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, won a hard-fought game against the young Boston Celtics to advance to the 2018 NBA Finals.

The Cleveland Cavaliers advanced to the NBA Finals with a victory on Sunday night against the Boston Celtics, but even in the celebration there is still a big question hanging over the teams head, what is LeBron James going to do this offseason. That's what we worked the entire regular season for, is a home-court advantage.

Gilbert told ESPN that his son Nick, who underwent laser ablation brain surgery in February which was widely reported, needed a second surgery in Washington, D.C., in April as a follow-up and spent much of the time that came after that in Boston for more treatment.

"Nothing changes for us", Harden said. "He and Zaza (Pachulia) were just talking to me, so they really encouraged me and helped me out a lot". We're still confident. We're a confident group. "It's just so intense in the playoffs and getting to the Finals and now the Finals, I don't think - and I know he doesn't - I don't think even our guys are talking (about anything other than) what's in front of them". So I think it's a game-time decision, whatever it is, probably doubtful.

An very bad start followed by three quarters of utter dominance, spot-on shot-making and lovely defense - even against one of the game's greatest and hardest to stop in James Harden.

They will play Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets, who meet in a game seven decider on Monday.

"Obviously we want to have him", Rockets forward PJ Tucker said.

Florida woman escapes abusive boyfriend by slipping a note to vet's staff
At the victim's home, deputies found two bullet holes in a hallway, which passed through drywall and into another room. While at DeLand Animal Hospital, she is believed to have slipped a note to a staff member asking for help.

Apparently, the answer is going down 17 to the Houston Rockets in a playoff elimination game. 'For me to be able to lead these guys is a treat'. "It's what we're built for".

But after playing all 48 minutes in his 100th game of the season, punctuating one of the greatest series a player has ever had with 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists, he sure looks capable of more.

Thompson said the Warriors would be ready. "We didn't communicate. We gave up wide-open threes", he said.

Thompson insisted the Warriors remain equally focused, adding: "If we take the same focus and execute the game plan like we should, I have all the confidence in the world in this team".

James has reached the NBA Finals in eight straight seasons, including four in a row with Cleveland.

The nine-time All-Star injured his right hamstring in the final minute of Houston's game-five win when he collided with Warriors guard Quinn Cook while driving to the basket, forcing him to miss Saturday's 115-86 loss to Golden State.

They succumbed to GSW twice, 118-108 and 99-92, while suffering the same fate in their season series to the Rockets, 120-88, and 117-113.

The Rodney Hoods, Jordan Clarksons and Kevin Loves have had more bad moments than good in the postseason, their scoring abilities seemingly stolen by the basketball gods to test James' greatness.
