Warriors Come Roaring Back, Force Game 7 vs. Rockets
Can it be epic with no King or Warriors? NBA Finals begin next Thursday, and could feature neither of the two teams that have monopolized the championship since 2015. The Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets remain only one conference final victory from supplanting LeBron “King” James’ Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors, respectively, in the finals. But Oakland showed its championship colors Saturday, winning 115-86 against the Rockets and forcing Game 7. Today the fresh-faced Celtics play their own seventh, but to dethrone the king, they’d best not miss.
