The Rockets were without Chris Paul who missed the game after injuring his hamstring in the fourth quarter of game six.

Building a squad capable of making up the 19-point gap between the Manchester rivals will be Mourinho's main task this summer, and Paul Scholes says a marquee name is required.

But that's not because of a very young LeBron , who finished with 27 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 assists in a road loss to a veteran Pistons team that had won the National Basketball Association title two years before this matchup. If he has one more in him like that, the Cavs' season won't end Sunday. The first one was ridiculous. George Hill had 20 points. Still, the four-time MVP carried his team even after Love banged heads with Boston's Jayson Tatum in the first half and left the ...

But our guess is the Warriors use this as a wake-up call, seize control in Houston and close things out back in Oakland. Watching film was the first objective before taking the court.
