The Rockets pulled away in the second, with Harden outstanding as the hosts moved 15 points clear with both Durant and Curry struggling from three-point range.

"Yes", he said, "because it's really hard".

The Golden State Warriors have been installed as overwhelming favorites over James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the fourth straight Finals meeting between the two teams. 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 don't even think about that", Harden said of playing without Paul. All the Warriors had to do was defend for five seconds, and they'd enter the second half with a single-digit deficit that so often disappears at the feet of their vaunted offense.

The Stanley Cup Finals hit the ice for Game 1 between newbies the Vegas Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals in Sin City on NBC, but the real sports showdown last night was on TNT in Game 7 of the National Basketball Association playoffs' Western Conference Finals.

In response to Kerr's comments, Thompson said the Warriors were not anxious because they were more than capable of making an 11-point lead vanish within minutes. "You have to have endurance, you've got to have resiliency, you've got to have confidence in yourself, no matter how the game's going up until that point, that you can turn it around". "And with our team, there's just so much firepower, we're going to get going".

In the end, the Rockets went 7-for-44 (15.9 percent) from 3-point range, while shooting 29-for-46 (63.0 percent) on 2-point shots.

He scored the Cavs' opening basket and never looked back, finishing with 46 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists and three steals. Overall, the Cavs shot 47.1 percent from the field, including 39.1 percent from beyond the arc.

"The other Cavs" turned into a punchline this season, something Stephen Curry says he hates. "So if we can get our act together, we'll be fine", Kerr grumbled before walking off after only one question. Houston shot 24 percent (6 of 25) in the third and while missing all 14 of its 3-point attempts.

Houston finally found a little offence after that, using a 7-2 run to cut it to 99-92, but their rally bid came up short.

The Golden State Warriors strike a familiar pose after wrapping up the Western Conference final in seven on Monday night. But after his layup cut Golden State's lead to 89-83, Warriors star Kevin Durant avoided an offseason of intense criticism by pushing back in the best way he knows how. Their offensive production gave Golden State the lift that they needed in order to get the separation to come out on top on the road.

At that point, it was just too much ground to make up.

If the Cavaliers win this championship, it might be time to declare the regular season irrelevant. Klay Thompson opened the game hot - and was 4-of-5 from the field - but his effectiveness was dulled to some extent because he'd uncharacteristically landed three fouls in the first four minutes of action, forcing Steve Kerr to yank him early.

The Celtics' 79 points were a playoff low against the Cavs.

Like most Game 7s, it wasn't pretty.
