Rockets' Paul out for tonight's Game 7 against Warriors

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green celebrate with teammates after defeating the Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the NBA basketball Western Conference finals Monday

Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors will meet the Cleveland Cavaliers for the fourth consecutive year in the NBA Finals.

Iggy injured his left leg when he and Houston star James Harden banged knees in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. "But making some progress". However, given the NBA Finals coverage is produced by ESPN-this is the 16 consecutive year the broadcaster has covered the final series on ABC-the games will also be available for streaming via the ESPN app.

Two decades have passed since an NBA Finals has been played in Utah, but Jazz fans still have a reason to be engaged in this year's championship. Some people are already exhausted of seeing the same teams facing each other in the NBA Finals, and a lot of them have already made their own predictions on the outcome of the series. "I want to just try to maximize as much as I can and be as good as I can". Cleveland's Jeff Green recalled watching Durant as a rookie when they were teammates in Seattle, and one thing impressed above all. The only intrigue in the series is which game Cleveland wins (I'll take Game 3) and how because the Cavs have gone backwards this year and the Warriors are still the Warriors.

"I don't know if she believed me, and I don't know if you guys believe me, but I really felt that", James said.

"Just being alert and taking away those easy like - losing him in transition or we turn our head, he moves and he gets a three wide open or an offensive rebounds, he moves and we don't lock into him". Kyle Korver has been dealing with the tragic loss of his younger brother and he didn't receive consistent playing time while JR Smith is averaging just 8.5 points in these playoffs. While Houston, who was obsessed with beating Golden State, might have fallen short, they did give the Cleveland Cavaliers the blueprint to success. "Then you get into the relatability of a guy". All three are some of the biggest names for some of the biggest sports apparel companies in the world, Nike (NKE - Free Report) for James and Durant, and Under Armour (UAA - Free Report) for Curry.

But just because these two teams have met the past three years, that doesn't mean there's nothing to talk about heading into this series.

With such a unusual season the Cavaliers have been playing as the underdog throughout this postseason. "I had loved him at Arizona and was hoping that he slid to us with that pick".

"They've been tested. We've been tested", Lue said.

Last month, Kerr became concerned his team's defense wouldn't return to its top form after Golden State struggled late in the regular season and even endured a particularly poor stretch in which the Warriors dropped seven of 10 games. "We're gonna miss that, but we're just going to have to play a different style of basketball without him being here".

When the Cleveland Cavaliers hit their low point this season, even their superstar began to wonder about their chances of recovering.

"It will be interesting to see how competitive LeBron James can make this Finals, but any game they get in this Finals would be a huge upset to me", Van Gundy said.
