Celtics-Cavs TV rating for Game 7 ties ESPN record

Boston Celtics: Game 7 will be the Jayson Tatum show

There is something appropriate about the Houston Rockets' championship aspirations hinging upon the availability of guard Chris Paul.

"If I get the nod from the trainers, Chris and the doctors, then he'll be ready to go", D'Antoni said.

Team doctors will re-evaluate Paul on Monday, with the decision on his availability to be determined by tipoff.

The Golden State Warriors look primed for another NBA Finals berth after blowing past the Rockets in a 115-86 in Game 6 to level the series.

"It was one of those things where we felt like we had some good momentum going there", said Horford. "But we knew this was hard".

"I'm the leader of this team, and I'm going to give what I've got". "Probably if any of those three disagree, he's probably not going". This got the guys wonder who in the league is the most clutch, and they narrowed it down to the top five.

That blocked shot preceded the Irving 3-pointer that delivered Cleveland its first major professional sports title in 52 years and climaxed a rally from a 3-1 deficit in the series against a team that had won a record 73 games in the regular season. Rather than be coy about his injury or list him as "questionable", the Rockets' staff have chose to take a more optimistic approach. He will miss his fourth straight game Monday.

Patrick McCaw will be available for Golden State and Kevon Looney has been upgraded from questionable to probable, the Warriors also said.

Houston's James Harden had dominated the early stages as they marched to a 39-22 lead after the first period, and he finished with 32 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.

"Right around the trade deadline, no matter if we made a trade or not at that point in time; I kind of just switched my mindset on saying, "let's get the most out of this season I can", Lebron added. He shot 13-of-23 from the floor including 9-of-14 from 3-point range.

LeBron James played one of the most important playoff games of his career on Sunday night. "We need them to be the loudest they've ever been". Paul has not yet been officially ruled out for Game 7 but the rumors are that he isn't likely to play.

After Game 6, D'Antoni revisited a moment from the offseason when the team convened in the Bahamas.

The advantage seems to be with Harden and the Rockets, whose 65 regular-season wins had earned them home-court edge throughout the National Basketball Association playoffs, including their Game 7 tussle with the Warriors today, an edge they aim to take advantage of.

For starters, Golden State, in an effort to force the Rockets into defensive catch-22s, has begun leaning considerably on pick-and-pop sets in which Thompson comes over to set a screen for either Curry or Durant.
