In other words, James is headed to his eighth straight NBA Finals appearance and he has never looked as sharp as he does now. "It's what you play for, to be in a situation where you're one win away from going to the finals".

According to oddsmakers, the Warriors are a 6-point favorite to win on the moneyline.

Boston was up 43-39 at halftime after leading by as many as 12 in the first half.

"And to come on the road where all the games have been lopsided, both home teams have pretty much been in great shape at home, and to come here in a hostile environment, Game 7, Eastern Conference finals, this and Game 7 of the NBA Finals in 2016, right there". They have to be exhausted, and that's no way to go into a series against Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors, who blew Cleveland away in five games previous year, or James Harden and a Rockets team that can be every bit as potent on one end and lock teams down on the other.

"I can't wait 'til Tuesday", Durant said. He exhausted late in Game 5, when the Celtics won their 10th straight at home this postseason.

"But to make it this far has shown him that there is something special in Cleveland, and he is more likely to stay with the team after this season is over whether they win the championship or not".

It seems as though the team actually does have no idea about how Paul's recovery is going to progress these next handful of hours before game 7. "If I get the nod from the trainers, Chris and the doctors, then he'll be ready to go", D'Antoni said in a conference call with ESPN.

In Paul's absence Saturday night, the Rockets lost 115-86 at Oracle Arena, pushing the series back to Houston tied 3-3.

"We said we want to do this for Kevin", Lue said. "We worked too hard this season to go home".

The Rockets tied the Raptors for best home record in the National Basketball Association during the regular season by going 34-7. We need them to be so hoarse at the end of the game from screaming, that everybody loses their voices.

"They're going to bring it", he said. Game 7 now heads back to Houston, but Chris Paul is reportedly considered unlikely to play. "They're champions. So our guys compete".

The Warriors are also dealing with injuries as Kerr said Andre Iguodala, who has missed the last two games with a bruised left leg, is doubtful for Monday's game.

Based on metered market ratings, Game 7 on ESPN was the highest-rated telecast across all of television for Sunday, May 27.
