Check out this end of game action in this Fantastic Finish.

The victor will take on the Cavaliers, who beat the Celtics last night in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, sending LeBron James to the Finals for the eighth straight year.

The MVP frontrunner promptly got skewered on social media for the perceived lack of sportsmanship.

Houston coach Mike D'Antoni bemoaned Paul's absence when asked about the Warriors' dominance in the third quarters.

For the game, Houston shot 7 for 44 from behind the arc. The Rockets couldn't have played better in the first half. Tucker was 2 for 5 and Gerald Green went 1 for 4, and the last miss of the group came from Joe Johnson, who went 0 for 1.

They might have to do it without star Chris Paul, who is dealing with a strained right hamstring that kept him out of Game 6.

"We're not going to be coy with it", D'Antoni said.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala recently got a second opinion on his injured left knee and is still trying to figure out what's wrong, league sources told ESPN.

"Monday", he said. "Please don't miss a game". We had an opportunity tonight and last game without Chris.

James Harden led the Rockets with 32 points but made just 12 of 29 shots from the field.

Maybe it's as simple as a team not being able to sustain that level of intensity for 48 minutes, so they subconsciously dial it back in the first half. The Rockets missed all 14 three-point attempts in that quarter as part of 27 misses from long range, a record for the National Basketball Association playoffs.

James and the Cavaliers secured their spot in the 2018 NBA Finals on Sunday, with a late surge that led them over the youthful and injury-plagued Celtics in Boston 87-79, in a thrilling Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals series.

"I'll be good, though", he said.

The Warriors will be without one of their key players in their most important game of the season yet. Even with a record blizzard of three-point misses, there was never so much as a passing thought to change up and try something different.
