"LeBron is incredible", Curry said Monday, a few hours before tipping off against the Houston Rockets in the decisive game of the Western Conference Finals. Throw in some awful defensive communication errors by the Warriors, and the Rockets were raining threes in the first half - 11-of-22, with Gordon going 4-of-4.
"We just couldn't quite knock them down, and to no fault of anybody".
Boston shot just nine-from-35 from beyond the arc at the TD Garden, leaving the Celtics with too much to do during a dramatic elimination showdown as 33-year-old James booked his place in the National Basketball Association finals for the eighth consecutive season.
He averaged 37 minutes over the first five games of the series against Golden State, scoring 47 combined points in victories in Games 4 and 5.
Golden State coach Steve Kerr is trying to figure out why his team has struggled to put together complete games in this series, but is proud that the Warriors have found ways to win despite their up and down play. "The guy's a machine".
Then came one of their trademark third-quarter surges. The 22-year-old scored two points and grabbed two rebounds and a steal in four minutes in Game 6.
Soon, the rout was on. They're champs. They're going to come back fighting, and they did. James has insisted time and time again during the 2017-18 campaign that he would not make his decision about where he will play next year until the Cavs season was over. "We've just got one chance".

He said Alberto's biggest threat will be its heavy rains, with forecasts of anywhere from 4 to 12 inches of rain in some areas. Alberto will bring widespread heavy rain in the Panhandle of Florida and Alabama later today and tonight.

Oil prices tumble on surprise jump in US inventories
As of 1628 BST, front month West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures on the ICE were 0.866% lower to $71.58 a barrel. Allaying fears of a steep rise in oil prices, OPEC countries have made a decision to step up production of crude oil.
"Obviously we want to have him", Rockets forward PJ Tucker said. "It was sort of a head scratcher. But the defense eventually kicked in, and obviously that led to transition, and the shotmaking in the second half was just awesome".
How have Rockets fared in Game 7s?
"I mean, the bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", said Lue.
Golden State stymied Harden on consecutive possessions early in the fourth with smothering defense led by Nick Young and several helpers, then Thompson hit a 3-pointer from the left wing at 9:40 for an 89-77 lead.
"A lot of miscommunication", Harden said. We'll just keep taking it day-by-day. The Warriors dominated the Rockets 115-86 on Saturday to force a decisive game seven which will take place Monday in Houston.
"Nothing changes for us". "We know what we have to do". We're a confident group. "We did just enough to win". I just had so much fun out there each and every night, no matter if we won or lost, just how we competed and always gave it our all.
Cleveland became the first team to win on the road in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference championship series and the first to beat the Celtics at home in the postseason.
