The Warriors are colossal - possibly historic - betting favorites over LeBron, the Cavs

In Houston Monday night, the Warriors got their act together and came back from a double-digit deficit to beat the Rockets 101-92 in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals.

Three years ago, he missed the entirety of the Cavaliers' NBA Finals series with the Warriors due to a separated shoulder.

Many are considering James' efforts this postseason to be one of his greatest accomplishments, as the squad he's surrounded by this season has been arguably worse than the team he dragged to the Finals back in 2007. I know the whole iso thing was a big thing around our team. The Warriors trailed by as many as 15 points in the first half of Game 7, before mounting a comeback. But it's just cool that every opportunity you step on the floor in the playoffs, the farther you go, somebody is going to challenge you.

Apparently, Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni told Warriors All-Star forward Kevin Durant during Game 7 that his team would have won the series if (Chris) Paul played. It's hard to be negative about anything that includes No. 23, but there's a good chance that No. 23 will see his mistakes while watching film and improve on that ahead of the Finals. "They were one half away from winning a championship". "We're been playing really physical, getting stops".

Despite having been the best player in the National Basketball Association for the better part of the past decade, LeBron James is no stranger to underdog status.

Ramos said: "Sometimes football shows you it's (sic) good side and other times the bad". Salah took off from the field in tears. He is in hospital for an X-ray.

If Van Gundy were a neutral fan or bookmaker, that opinion would not be surprising. For those that have faith in LeBron James and the underdog Cavaliers, their odds are set at +650, meaning a $100 bet would earn a $650 return should they pull off the upset.

Stop me if you've heard this one: The Golden State Warriors will play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the best-of-seven NBA Finals.

"So, the next round is going to be LeBron James, somebody I can match up with". They marched through the Eastern Conference. He's not a scorer for us as Chris (Paul) is for Houston, but a huge component.

To reach this point was no easy task for either Cleveland or Golden State. "We know what we have here and what we're trying to do". "The games will either excite people, the results will either excite people".

"If James and the Cavaliers win Game 1, the interest is going to skyrocket, because they're going to have done what very few except for them, maybe, think they can do, which is win in Golden State", Van Gundy said. "And you have to have those momentum changers and stoppers, and the last two games, we didn't have them". Cleveland is not expected to seriously contend in this year's series, according to the oddsmakers.
