Warriors, Cavs Prepare for Game 7 of NBA Finals

Posted: Updated:

It's the two most exciting words in sports, game seven.  Tonight the defending champion Golden State Warriors return to Oracle Arena to face off against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.  The Warriors, who set an NBA record by going 73-9 in the regular season are 11-2 at home in the playoffs.  Not too long ago it seemed the Warriors would coast to their second straight title when they pitted Cleveland in a 3-1 hole, but LeBron and Co. responded by winning the next two games, including one in Oakland to force a game 7.  "This is my first crack at it so I'm excited about it."  Said league MVP Steph Curry,  "I know that we've had two sub par games and we need to make a couple of adjustments and we are capable of doing that and we are a resilient basketball team that is ready for this opportunity."

LeBron, to no ones surprise, has been an absolute freak in the Finals, he leads all players on both teams in nearly every statistical category, while averaging over 30 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists per game.  King James could become the first Finals MVP on a losing team.  But Lebron said his main goal is to bring a championship back to he city of Cleveland, where they haven't had a pro sports championship in 52 years.

"I came back for a reason and that is to bring a championship back to the city of Cleveland, northeast Ohio and Caviler fans all over the world"  James said,  "That's been one of my goals but I don't add to much pressure on it I go out and trust what I've been able to do, the work I've put into it and the work my teammates have put in."

Game seven tip off is set for 7:00.
