The Rockets will look to advance to the Finals tonight

Cavaliers are waiting to know the victor between Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors who will play the Western Conference Final on Tuesday.

"I don't want to go home", said Thompson, who made nine three-pointers.

"This is the last chapter for our team this season", said James.

For just a while, it seemed like maybe, just maybe, we were headed for the unthinkable. Meanwhile, the Rockets are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss of more than 10 points and 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a loss.

In the first close game, the lowest-scoring and the first victory for a road team in the series, James played all 48 minutes, scoring 12 of his points in the fourth quarter for his sixth straight Game 7 win.

Golden State Warriors came back from a 17-point first-quarter deficit to beat the Houston Rockets 115-86.

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". Scott Foster will be the lead official tonight with Mike Callahan and Derrick Stafford. Callahan and Stafford aren't too bad, but Foster is regarded as one of the worst refs in the business.

Soon, the rout was on.

"If I get the nod from the trainers, Chris and the doctors, then he'll be ready to go", D'Antoni said. "Probably if any of those three disagree, he's probably not going". "It was sort of a head scratcher". Those are things, like I said, when you're done playing the game, you can only dream and wish that you could be a part of that once again. It started with defense in the second half, and then the 3-point barrage began, led by the Splash Brothers.

His fellow Most Valuable Player candidate James Harden or former MVP Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors?

Eric Gordon, starting in place of Paul, scored just three of his 19 points after the interval. "I've learned so much", Tatum said.

Harden scored 32 points and handed out nine assists but also coughed up nine turnovers as the Rockets surrendered an early 17-point lead and fell 109-99 in Oakland. The offense will need to be better than those games, but locking down the perimeter is a must. Tom Heinsohn (9) and Sam Jones (9) have made more consecutive appearances in National Basketball Association history. "So nothing changes for us". "But we knew this was hard". We're still confident. We're a confident group.

And while it's easy enough to say that the Warriors simply shot better Saturday, there was a bit more to it than just that.

"Effort. Intensity. Passion", Thompson said of the Warriors' second-half surge.
