NBA Recap – Warriors Defeat Rockets in Game 7


Warriors Defeat Rockets in Game 7It was a great season for the Houston Rockets as they proved that they were good enough to go against the Golden State Warriors.  Unfortunately, good enough was not enough to beat them for Game 7 which ended in a 101-92 loss for the Rockets.

For the Golden State Warriors, it was a close call as they found themselves behind by 11 points with only 24 minutes to go.  The Warriors looked dead on the court and it looked like they would miss the NBA Finals this year.  However, during the second half of the game, the Warriors came alive while the Rockets forgot how to shoot.

During the third quarter, Stephen Curry scored 14 points of his 27 points.  This helped turned the game around for the Warriors from an 11 point deficit to a 7 point advantage. In addition, once the Warriors took the lead, they kept it thanks to 11 points from Kevin Durant.
