Rockets GM Daryl Morey: We should have won Game 7

LeBron James followed up his jaw-dropping block with an epic full-court staredown

In an era where so many thought this Warriors' team was untouchable, Houston managed to push Golden State to the brink.

Paul was sorely missed in the third quarter of Game 6 where the Warriors turned a first half deficit into a blowout victory. Golden State seized the lead by outscoring Houston by 18 points in the third quarter. At one point, the Rockets missed an inconceivable 27 consecutive three-point shots, including going 0-for-14 in the third quarter.

Game 1 begins Thursday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

In beating Boston, the Cavs also became the first team to win on the road in the Eastern Conference finals series.

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.

History may note that from the beginning of the season, National Basketball Association fans bemoaned what felt like a near certainty that, in the 223 days between the Cavaliers tipping off the National Basketball Association season on October 17 and the Warriors closing out the Houston Rockets on Monday night, we'd see a tetralogy for Warriors-Cavaliers. Game seven, you get some nerves. The Rockets got 30 points on 27 shots combined from James Harden and Eric Gordon in the first half. "This is one of the most challenging seasons I have had".

Stop me if you've heard this one: The Golden State Warriors will play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the best-of-seven NBA Finals. Golden State has proven how hard it is to win even three consecutive championships, which hasn't happened since the Lakers did it at the beginning of this century.

Iguodala, the 2015 Finals MVP, has missed the past four games after bumping knees with Houston Rockets All-Star James Harden in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals. Boston was 7 for 39 from 3-point range, with Rozier missing all 10 of his attempts.

"Our goal going into the series was to make him exert as much energy as humanly possible and try to be as good as we can on everybody else", Stevens said.

"We just couldn't quite knock them down, and to no fault of anybody". They claimed their second championship in three years in five games. Perhaps as a result, Kerr plans to play his top four starters - Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson - for at least 40 minutes each.

Much has been made of LeBron James leading a less-than-stellar supporting cast to the NBA Finals, with some arguing that it's the greatest achievement in a career that includes three NBA championships and eight straight Finals appearances.

"All those hurdles and obstacles, we got over them, so it's an unbelievable feeling. We're where we set out to be and where we knew we could be at this point". James is now 6-2 in Game 7 situations after losing his first two. They made tough shots. Their performance earned them home court advantage throughout the playoffs, and when they worked the Western Conference Finals to a Game 7 at home, their shooting needed to hold for just one more game to give them a shot at a title.
