Kerr Joked About Resigning During Warriors' Game 7 Comeback Against Rockets

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James right celebrates a basket during the second half in Game 7 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics

"I'm just proud of the way we battled", Klay Thompson said.

But just as they have done throughout the playoffs, the Warriors found an extra gear in the third period, with Curry and Durant suddenly finding their range from three-point distance to come roaring back into the contest.

Rockets ace James Harden, who finished with 32 points, said his team's second-half performances in Games 6 and 7 had decided the fate of the series.

It will be the eighth-finals in a row for James - and a fourth for the Cavs. It's the fourth straight such title that the Cavs have won with LeBron James leading the team to an improbable run to the 2018 NBA Finals. According to ESPN Stats & Info, that ties Lakers-76ers Game 1 in 2001 as the biggest point spread in an NBA Finals game over the last 25 years (underdog Philly scored a six-point upset win, its only victory of the series).

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

But don't be too upset if you're unable, at the moment, to legally place a wager on the Warriors to win these NBA Finals in the Golden State - the Dubs are such prohibitive favorites that you're better off keeping your money. "Forty-eight minutes, it lasts a long time and there's so many opportunities to get yourself going as a team". "The great quote from the great Doc Rivers is you always want to go into the Game 7 with the best player, and we have the best player on our team going into a Game 7". Coach Kerr told us that might have been the worst offensive half we had all year yet we're only down 11 points, so we were actually encouraged, believe it or not.

Green's 3-pointer with 4:56 left in the third quarter gave Cleveland their first lead since the opening minutes at 53-51. No, we've got the right formula. Houston was 7-of-44 from 3-point range in the game. But surviving two elimination games and winning a Game 7 on the road - deep into a season they were widely expected to dominate - is a start.

Golden State are the overwhelming favourites to defend their crown and make it a third win over Cleveland in four years.

"It was asked of me tonight to play the whole game", he said.

The home side's continued misses, meanwhile, proved to be their downfall as they missed all 14 of their three-point efforts in the third quarter, part of a sorry run of 27 consecutive three point misses during the game - the longest drought during a playoff game in National Basketball Association history as their overall Game 7 total was 7-for-44 from beyond the arc.

Paul averaged 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.8 assists during the playoffs and was competing in the conference finals for the first time in his career.

The Celtics have had more time to get used to their injuries: Gordon Hayward has been out since the first game of the season, and Kyrie Irving has been sidelined since March. Capela was a huge factor, hitting seven of eight shots for 14 of his 20 points in the first half.

There is going to have to be a lot of critical discussion around the organization on whether taking 40-50 three pointers, particularly in a game where you are making 15 percent of them, is a good idea.
