KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"First of all, they've done that all year against everybody", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said of the Warriors' third-quarter surge.

Curry scored 14 of Golden State's 33 points in the third quarter as Houston's shooting didn't just go cold, it froze.

Entering the third quarter the Rockets led 54-43, but had missed nine 3-pointers in a row.

The Warriors host Game 1 of the final on Thursday and Game 2 on Sunday.

Golden State has won two of their three meetings back in 2015 and 2017, while Cleveland pulled one back in 2016 with their historic comeback from down 1-3 to claim the city's first-ever National Basketball Association championship.

We went ahead and compiled of some of Twitter's reactions to the Warriors & Cavs meeting again in the Finals, which you can see for yourself below.

The Golden State Warriors strike a familiar pose after wrapping up the Western Conference final in seven on Monday night. Maybe more than the style of play is who is executing it and the Rockets just didn't have the shooters the Warriors do. At the most critical point of the season, Harden no longer had Paul to share the playmaking or the pressure burden that the Rockets had purposefully split between them all season, hoping to keep both fresh and impactful throughout a long playoff run.

James led that comeback to Cleveland's first title, and now he's got a shot for another unlikely one.

The Cavaliers will take on either the reigning champion Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets in the championship series.

He said Saturday would be remembered as the day Ireland "stepped out from under the last of our shadows and into the light". Andrew Little said the result of the Irish referendum indicated that attitudes and values towards abortion were changing.

"I love everything about the kid", James said afterwards, despite Tatum's exuberant chest bump after his dunk.

Mike D'Antoni coached the Houston Rockets to 65 games this season and led James Harden to what is nearly certainly an MVP award.

Tucker's 3 was the first of seven straight points for Houston which cut the lead to 89-83.

James Harden had 32 points as the top-seeded Rockets' bid to return to the finals for the first time since 1995 fell short without Chris Paul, who was nursing a hamstring injury.

After a resounding win in Game 6 that's exactly where the defending champions are, preparing for a winner-take-all game today for a spot in the NBA Finals.

Kerr said the raw talent of the Warriors line-up, with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson suddenly clicking, was decisive. "They've got it and we've got it".

"We just couldn't quite knock them down, and to no fault of anybody".

"The second half was unbelievable", Curry said.

Those expectations finally became too much in the most important game any player on the team - with the exception of Aron Baynes - had ever participated in. "Whether we figured it out, win or lose, we showed a lot of fight, a lot of grit and resiliency to stay positive as we went through the series no matter what the situation was". If James hadn't averaged 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists throughout the playoffs, the Cavs wouldn't have advanced past the first round if they even made the postseason to begin with.
