Rockets 27 Missed 3’s, Warriors Vs Cavs In NBA Finals, VGS Leads Capitals 1-0

BASKETBALL

An exciting weekend of basketball determined the NBA Finals matchup. For the 4th straight year, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors will face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

While the Cavs seemed to cruise into the finals in their game 7 win over the Boston Celtics, the Warriors struggled in the first half against the Houston Rockets (who were without Chris Paul). As they’ve been known to do during the playoffs, the Warriors came back strong in the third quarter, and the Rockets melted (missing 27 straight 3’s). According to Elias Sports, the game featured the most consecutive missed 3s in a playoff game in NBA history.

The Finals begin Thursday 9:00 pm. ET at Golden State.
