Injured Iguodala searching for answers ahead of NBA Finals

This is Le Bron James eight straight trip to the NBA Finals

This is Le Bron James eight straight trip to the NBA Finals

If this was the circus, the ringmaster would bark out, "And now, for what could be his final act as a Cleveland Cavalier, the great LeBron James will try to de-throne the NBA's kings, the Golden State Warriors".

Said Van Gundy, "LeBron James being in the Finals is never bad for business, and obviously the Warriors are such a team of superior talent that [Kevin] Durant, Curry, [Klay] Thompson, they're going to always be a big draw".

All games will air live in a repeat of last year's historic bilingual simulcast starting Game 1, which will be hosten by the Warriors, at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

"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". "Somebody asked, 'Four years in a row getting to the finals, do you appreciate it?' Yes".

Houston's futility from deep - they finished shooting 7-44 from the three-point line - contributed to the Rockets blowing a 15-point lead in the second half and costing themselves a Finals berth. "It's a letdown to me", Van Gundy said. As in, LeBron James may be king, but Steph Curry clearly rules.

Syria Vows to Fight Rebels Despite US Warning
A separate report in a Saudi newspaper said the regime had agreed that Iranian militias would stay 25 kilometres away. The Iranians denied they had fired any rockets.

The Rockets were understandably emotional after losing just one game shy of the NBA Finals, with Trevor Ariza, Clint Capela and P.J. Tucker in tears.

Although a Rockets-Cavaliers matchup may have been more interesting, it's likely that at least 20 million fans will watch Thursday evening to see if LeBron can carry his team against the Warriors' squad of future Hall of Famers. He now worries that his body simply cannot go any further against the strongest team in the National Basketball Association, the Golden State Warriors. Golden State is deeper, quicker, more potent offensively and much more reliable defensively. We've got EXCLUSIVE details on how he's now dreading going up against the mighty Golden State Warriors.

Winning another championship now, leading this group of Cavaliers past a much mightier Golden State team, might even be a bigger challenge. And now, I mean, we're where we want to be.

A large part of Cleveland's hopes of putting the Warriors on the back foot rests on punishing Golden State from beyond the arc. The Warriors lost Game 4 95-92 and Game 5 98-94 without Iguodala, but then the Rockets went down 115-86 in Game 6 and 101-92 in Game 7 without Paul while Iguodala was still sidelined.

And now it's time for one of these teams to earn a title.
