Steve Kerr said after the game.
The Rockets played themselves out of the playoffs and they did it by lazily launching 3-pointers instead of attacking the paint.
It was the largest halftime deficit overcome by a road team in a Game 7 in National Basketball Association history.
Following the Warriors win Monday night, NBA twitter was sounding off about having to watch a 4th straight NBA Finals between the Warriors & Cavs, and it's safe to say many people are sick and exhausted of seeing the same old story line.
But the big story in, and the big problem for, Houston will be the injury to superstar guard Chris Paul, who missed Game 6 - when the Rockets had an opportunity to wrap up the series - with a hamstring injury. Thompson got going and so did Durant. At the most critical point of the season, Harden no longer had Paul to share the playmaking or the pressure burden that the Rockets had purposefully split between them all season, hoping to keep both fresh and impactful throughout a long playoff run. Iguodala averaged 8.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.7 steals per game in the first three bouts of the series. Rockets star Chris Paul is out with a hamstring strain that he suffered during the closing seconds of Houston's Game 5 win.
"I guarantee if we start the game out like we did (Saturday) and they jump out to the lead, it's going to be 10 times harder to make it a game", Curry said. The Warriors did that in both Games 6 and 7.

The Rockets have not qualified for the Finals since 1995 when they won the second of back-to-back titles, the only two titles in franchise history. But again, I know the fans of Houston, especially myself, to have him on your side is incredible. Even with a record blizzard of three-point misses, there was never so much as a passing thought to change up and try something different. He'll be back. Like I said, he'll be even better.
