Warriors coach Steve Kerr later said there had been no hint of panic at halftime even as the Warriors trailed.

Golden State scored 33 points in the third quarter for the second straight game while Houston managed just 15 points on Monday night after it scored 16 in the third in Game 6.

For the quarter the Rockets went 0-for-14 from deep, and went on a stretch through the fourth quarter where they missed an National Basketball Association playoff record 27 3-pointers in a row.

Ahead of Game 1, the Warriors will be huge favorites to win the series, and fans aren't too excited to see it.

The Warriors are listed as -1000 moneyline favorites to beat the Cavs in their fourth straight Finals meeting (bet $1,000 to win $100), which equates to an implied probability of around 91 percent.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala recently got a second opinion on his injured left knee and is still trying to figure out what's wrong, league sources told ESPN. Who you got winning it? Stephen Curry led the way with 14 points in the frame - only one fewer than the Rockets - and hit 4 of 5 3s, including one with 3:58 remaining in the quarter that gave Golden State the lead for good.

From 1980 through 1989, the Boston Celtics or Los Angeles Lakers played in the Finals every season, but never more than twice consecutively against each other.

They will play Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets, who meet in a game seven decider on Monday. Golden State has proven how hard it is to win even three consecutive championships, which hasn't happened since the Lakers did it at the beginning of this century. "We just didn't have the same energy that we had in the first half, the pace", Harden said. But suddenly Houston chose to start chucking 3-pointers at an even higher rate. Johnson went 0-14 in the Game 7 of the 1978 NBA Finals.

Jayson Tatum scored 24 points to lead the Celtics, who lost at home for the first time this postseason in 11 games. Gordon shot 2 of 12 from 3-point range, slightly better than Harden's 2of 13.

"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". After scoring 35 points in Game 6, he collected three fouls in less than four minutes to force him to sit out most of the first quarter. "Whether we figured it out, win or lose, we showed a lot of fight, a lot of grit and resiliency to stay positive as we went through the series no matter what the situation was".

Their main trouble in the second half, though, came from behind the arc. I took umbrage with those. Just seems like the ycame out a little more determined than we were in the beginning. 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. In the fourth quarter Sunday, he made 4 of 6 shots, grabbed three rebounds and collected four assists.
