The NBA Finals are almost here and there is just one spot open. Having clinched the Eastern Conference Finals in an electric game 7, the LeBron James led Cleveland Cavaliers await the winners of the Western Conference. LeBron James has already proved his worth by single handedly lifting his team to the Eastern Conference Finals, and now to the NBA Finals. His dominant performance in literally all the games, has shown the world how much this means to him.
While the Houston Rockets have had an excellent season so far, the Warriors have had quite a few hiccups in their journey. It started with Curry’s injury and is ending now with Iguodala having to sit out the last three games. Will he be missed? Obviously. Can the Warriors win without him? We will have to wait and see.
Houston, on the other hand have had a fit and complete squad for most of the season. Unfortunately, their star point guard, Chris Paul was seen holding his hamstring at the end of game 5, and sat out for game 6 – which the Warriors won to force a game 7. Now they play at home and would love to have Paul back, but the support staff will determine his fitness levels just before game time.
Win or Go Home Scenario
Does the injury to Paul open a door for the Warriors to come back and win the series 4-3? Will the likes of Curry, Durant, and Green step up and snatch away any hopes of playing the Finals against the Cavs for Houston? Or will James Harden, aka, The Beard, have something to say about it? Its a tough call to make, but it looks like it is shaping up to be a nail biter.
