"He allowed us to go one on one against the mismatches and can't nobody stop him one on one", Lue said.

The Warriors advanced to their fourth straight NBA Finals with a 101-92 win Sunday over the Rockets. However, this isn't the same as its been in the past. Of course, they still have their star-studded Hamptons Five lineup.

Scoring a 10.3 in metered market results, last night's Warrior-Rockets game was the highest-rated National Basketball Association game this year on cable or broadcast.

Kevin Durant was the key man for the Warriors, scoring ten points in the third period as the 2017 Champions took a 76-69 lead heading into the final quarter.

The top-seeded Toronto Raptors followed and they believed they could finally end their losing run against the Cavaliers and dethrone the King. LeBron's detractors often ding the four-time MVP for his 3-5 career record in the NBA Finals, but looking at the pre-series odds provides some useful context. However, they're back again and that should be seen as an accomplishment after a drama-filled season. Houston was a team that was built for one goal - beating the Warriors. "They are clearly the favorite, without question, but the luxury of having the best player in the world in that situation, anything can happen".

By now, it's common knowledge LeBron James has made it to eight consecutive NBA Finals - with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat.

It's ridiculous and he does it at this level and with the pressure, and with the scrutiny - doesn't matter. Tatum admitted that James seeking him out after the final buzzer meant a lot to first-year player.

If they were going to lose, it would have been in the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets.

Thanks to a stunning series by LeBron James, however, they managed to survive that scare. GSW hit back with Kevin Durrant and Steph Curry who registered his first of many three-pointers of the evening. To put that number in perspective, one would have to bet $1,000 to win $100 on a Golden State series victory. The Warriors are at their best when Curry is bending a defense to his will and he needs the ball to do that.

The Warriors responded by raining down 3's.

You just try to console them as much as you can. "We win as a team, we lose as a team". Maybe when I was 11 or 12 and we lost the cup final or something".

According to SportsLine date scientist Stephen Oh's simulations, the Warriors have a 74.3 percent chance of winning this series.
