Warriors’ Andre Iguodala ruled out for Game 7

Boston Celtics: Game 7 will be the Jayson Tatum show

They have to be exhausted, and that's no way to go into a series against Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors, who blew Cleveland away in five games a year ago, or James Harden and a Rockets team that can be every bit as potent on one end and lock teams down on the other.

The 33-year-old James played all 48 minutes and finished with 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists for the Cavaliers who are in the league championship for the fourth consecutive year. "Probably if any of those three disagree, he's probably not going". "We reached so often in Game 5, and when they go to the line, it's free points".

The Warriors opened the third with an 11-0 burst to go ahead 62-61 on Curry's 3 at 9:17, also getting a pair of 3s from Thompson and a dunk by Durant.

James led the Cavaliers in the first half with 17 points and 10 rebounds but they trailed for much of the half in front of a crowd of 18,600 at the Boston Garden.

Houston's Most Valuable Player candidate James Harden dominated early, finishing with 32 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Yet, Warriors coach Steve Kerr downgraded Iguodala's status to "doubtful". "The guy's a machine".

Tatum's jam brought the Celtics within two points with 6:42 to play, and he gave Boston a lead with a three-pointer less than a minute later.

Soon, the rout was on.

He's going to have to keep doing that for a couple of more games, at least. But they do not have James, who - to borrow a term from former Cleveland general manager David Griffin - has the ability to dictate outcomes like no one else. Korver said. "But we got 23 on our side". "It was sort of a head scratcher".

That sentiment rang especially true throughout the postseason, with the Indiana Pacers almost taking a 3-1 lead in the opening round before some clutch 3-point shooting from Korver in Game 4 saved the season. "But the defense eventually kicked in, and obviously that led to transition, and the shotmaking in the second half was just incredible". The Warriors outscored the Rockets 55-20 in the second half before both coaches subbed their key players with 4:28 left.

"I was so impressed with Boston and their young players and what they've built", Kerr said. For the better part of the last calendar year, the Cavs' franchise has experienced no shortage of ups and downs - slow climbs and faster falls - and yet James and Co. still find themselves in the same place they started this ride last June, en route to a fourth straight NBA Finals.

"Nothing changes for us", Harden said.

"We like our formula against these guys", Kerr said, "and we feel confident that we can carry this through to Game 7 on the road and continue to make things as hard as possible on Houston without fouling".

"Effort. Intensity. Passion", Thompson said of the Warriors' second-half surge. I have to tip my ht off to every guy on this team for really making an imprint on this game and making it tough for Boston to get comfortable.
