The Houston Rockets didn't have an injured Chris Paul on the court once again, and once again the Golden State Warriors proved the victors with a 101-92 win in the first Game 7 of a Western Conference Finals since 2016, when the Warriors beat the Oklahoma Thunder.

"This is a situation we've never been in before.to win a Game 7 on the road, keep our composure for the whole series", Curry said post game on TNT."All those hurdles and obstacles, we got over them, so it's an unbelievable feeling, man".

"This is a true testament to how hard it is to get to the NBA Finals, how hard it is to have a chance to play for a championship". The victory sent the defending champions to a 4th straight championship showdown against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Golden State trailed by 11 at halftime after being behind at the break by 10 points in Game 6, becoming the first team to win multiple elimination games in the same series when trailing by double digits after two quarters.

Curry couldn't quite explain why he loves the third quarters.

The Warriors weren't anxious, and according to Kevin Durant, it was James Harden's fitness that had Golden State expecting a second-half rally.

The Celtics were up by as many as 12 in the first half and had a plethora of opportunities to increase that lead into the 20s.

He did in the second half. "The great quote from the great Doc Rivers is you always want to go into the Game 7 with the best player, and we have the best player on our team going into a Game 7". As great as they were with that style of play in the offseason, it abandoned them in the Western Conference Finals, no more emphatically than an 0-27 stretch between the second and fourth quarters that set an National Basketball Association playoff record.

The Warriors, who previously played in Philadelphia and San Francisco before becoming the Golden State Warriors in 1971, have played in nine title games, winning four.

"Harden had a different viewpoint".

"We just didn't have that extra juice that we needed", Harden said. Thompson, who missed time with a severe calf injury, wasn't a factor until Lue started him in Game 7 of the in series.

The odds are longer than a Stephen Curry 3-pointer, Kevin Durant's wingspan or Draymond Green's catalogue of technical fouls.

The Warriors averaged 30.2 points on 52 percent from the field and 43 percent from 3-point range in third quarters this season.

Since Steve Kerr took over as head coach in 2014, the Warriors have lost 20 playoff games; 16 of those involved their opponents shooting better from behind the three-point line. "We know what we have here and what we're trying to do".
