They're the defending champs until someone eliminates them. I remember a while back when the Kobe and Shaq Lakers were down 3-1 against the Kings and came back and won the series and then the title. I don't think OKC are choke artist like the Kings but Golden State is a strong team.

No. They had plenty of rest between playoff series. Curry  is all banged up and that happened  during the playoffs. Draymond  Green playing like shit doesn't  help either. Warrior's "deathlineup " of going small was countered by OKC small lineup. OKC still bigger. Warrior's  can't  guard the rim with all the length OKC has. Offensive rebounding by the Thunder is killkng the Warriors. If the warriors  can force Westbrook  to shoot  jumpers instead of him driving for layups the Warriors will see another day.

If Curry can play 5 more injury free seasons, he absolutely will be regarded as one of the top 10 all time.

That's the rub, he needs about 5 more seasons at this level to be considered top 10 of all time.

Absolutely not saying that.  However, I am using the Derrick Rose test.  5 seasons ago, after he'd won his MVP and was looking like the second coming of Isiah Thomas, people were jumping on the Rose bandwagon saying he was absolutely going to go down as one of the greatest of all time.  Then the injuries happened, and now not only is he out of the discussion, he's more or less just an afterthought.

Same thing could happen to Curry, thus the caveat.  But--as Curry enters his prime, mind you--even if he just has five average (for him) healthy seasons, he'll absolutely be in the GOAT discussion.

Never count out the team facing elimination!! I'm surprised that the Blues lost last night in SJ. Golden State can still pull this out.

I was trying to look this up

Team down 3-1

Comes back to tie 3-3

Team that came back to tie I think usually loses , in theory they have 'spent themselves' winning back-to-back 'must win' games. Can't find a scenario where the team that 'came back to tie' was probably the better team though.

This game 7 is a big game for the entire OKC franchise. If they win this game and make the finals I think they win it all. If they blow a 3-1 lead against Golden State they'll fall apart, within 2 years they'll be lucky to even sniff the playoffs..

I was thinking the same thing, which is sad. OKC is a team that could've and should've had multiple championships over the past few seasons. Can you imagine how great a team this would've been had they not traded Harden?

Eh, I think trading Harden was addition by subtraction, that dude is completely "all about me"..if he had stayed Durant or Westbrook would have already gotten the hell out of there I'm sure demanding a trade or something..

Is this you Benlen ?????


from cbssports.com:

San Francisco and the surrounding areas are one of the most expensive places to live in the country. From rent to food, the cost of living is San Francisco is often greater than a place like New York City. So it shouldn't be too surprising that tickets to Game 7 of the Western Conference finals between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder in Oakland are ridiculously expensive.

Tickets are so outrageously expensive that according to ESPN's Darren Rovell, a fan purchased two tickets courtside tickets for a total of $58,000. Rovell also reports that the Warriors sold out of tickets within minutes of putting them up for sale:

The Warriors put the few remaining tickets on sale Sunday night, with prices ranging from $230 to $2,150. They sold out in less than five minutes.

Those prices did not include any floor seats, which were sold out. But someone did go to the Warriors' resale site, run by Ticketmaster, and purchased two floor seats for $29,000 each.

I wish I had the guts to spend 70% of my salary on two Warrior tix.
For a 10 year period I had free tickets to Warrior games. Place was so emptied that I would have a box all to myself and my cousin. I would look to my left and right and there would be emptied mezzanine seats. Love having my own bathroom. LOL

That was like going to Royals games when I first moved here in 98. I'd go see the Blue Jays everytime they'd come to town, buy the $6 upper deck seats and go and sit down a few rows up from 1st base and still have a row to myself. Now that they won the World Series, ticket prices and seats are out of control.

Cavaliers nothing but isolation plays. If they wanna do that you mind as well play Mosgov instead of that useless Dellavelova. Use Mosgov height.

Lebron frustrates me more than any professional athlete I've ever watched. Even now if he drives to the hoop he's unstoppable..he's either going to score or get fouled. He'll do that a few times at the start of a game but then settle for jumpshots and passing the ball the rest of the game..TAKE IT TO THE HOLE DAMNIT, it's guaranteed points but damn..

If you took Michael Jordan's killer instinct and put it in Lebron's body he'd have averaged 40 a game for his career instead of 30 and probably come close to averaging a career double double..

Boy Cleveland is shitty. Where's all those 3 pointers the Cavs were making against the Hawks and raptors? Kevin Love is just like Harrison Barnes...runs to a spot and hopes he gets the ball. Can't play defense either.

63 point swing from Game 2 to Game 3. The Cavaliers are a MUCH better defensive team without Kevin Love.

Draymond Green suspended for Game 5.


from cbssports.com:





Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, the league announced on Sunday. Green was assessed a flagrant-1 foul for hitting Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James in the groin late in Friday's game. James was assessed a technical foul for his role in the altercation that ensued.

Green had already picked up a flagrant-1 foul and a flagrant-2 foul in the playoffs. Once a player has three flagrant foul points in the postseason, another flagrant foul automatically triggers a suspension.

"The cumulative points system is designed to deter flagrant fouls in our game," NBA vice president of basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe said in a statement. "While Draymond Green's actions in Game 4 do not merit a suspension as a standalone act, the number of flagrant points he has earned triggers a suspension for Game 5."

Ayesha Curry has an unlikely ally backing her since-deleted conspiracy claims against the NBA.

Less than 24 hours after Stephen Curry's wife went on a Twitter tirade following Golden State's Game 6 loss to Cleveland, Boston Red Sox ace David Price joined the chorus of second-guessers who think the NBA is rigging the outcome of this year's Finals.

I believe the #nba is fixed now....pretty bad

— David Price (@DAVIDprice24) June 17, 2016
Price's comments follow Ayesha Curry's explosive allegations on Twitter that the NBA Finals are "absolutely rigged for money ... or ratings." The accusations came on the heels of Stephen Curry's late-game meltdown, in which the two-time MVP fouled out, hit a fan with his mouthguard, and received his first career ejection.

Curry's frustrations were indicative of the Warriors' as a whole, after LeBron James' prolific 41-point performance helped the Cavaliers force an improbable Game 7 in Oakland on Sunday.

Ayesha Curry later apologized for the deleted tweet, saying she had become caught up "in the heat of the moment" because her husband's sixth foul was "uncalled for."

She only said the same thing I have been feeling since the refs helped the Lakers against Sacramento years ago in the playoffs.

That and the fact that they were really really fast to say that Tim Donaghey acted alone in his actions without even bothering to make it appear they were investigating his claims

Ratings were down for game 6, Every game has been blowout.
Both teams have scored exactly 610 points.
I will guess a rating of 45 for game 7
