Golden State Warriors will play Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals for a fourth successive year following their Western Conference final win over Houston Rockets
Star player Steph Curry masterminded an impressive second half revival to lead his team past Rockets 101-92 in what was the deciding game in the series.
His 27 points played a crucial role in helping the reigning champions overcome a 15-point deficit to secure a 4-3 series victory.
Golden State Warriors will now face Cleveland Cavaliers in the final as they target a 3rd title in 4 seasons after winning in 2015 and 2017.
2016 title winners Cleveland Cavaliers had earlier booked a place in the NBA finals with a 4-3 series win over Boston Celtics via an 87-79 victory in the final game.
Speaking after the game, Curry said: “Basketball is a 48-minute game and no matter how badly we played, how many shots we missed, there’s always time to turn it around.”
“The second half was unbelievable. [We’re] happy to be back in the finals.”
“This is a situation we’ve never been in before: to win a game seven on the road and keep our composure for the whole series.”
“All those hurdles and obstacles, we got over them, so it’s an unbelievable feeling. Winning a championship is hard – so this is a testament to that.” he concluded.
The NBA final series starts on the 1st of June as the Cavs visit the Warriors in Oakland, California.
