West Finals – Game 7 Preview

Well here we are. Warriors vs Rockets. Six games in and no clear-cut winner. Both teams have dealt with injury. Both teams have dealt with blowout losses and wins. Both teams have won on the other’s home floor. So it’s only fitting that it would come down to this.

Game 7 in Houston on Memorial Day.

Immediate Advantage: Warriors

Golden State comes in with the Game 7 advantage as they last played a game 7 two years ago – in fact, that same playoff they went 1-1. And they are 2-1 in Game 7s under Steve Kerr. The only loss – the one that haunts them the most – The 2016 NBA Finals Game 7 in Oakland two Junes ago.

Another advantage – the last eight defending champs that faced a game 7 the next season – HAVE WON! Including the Dubs in the aforementioned Game 7 two Memorial Days ago against Oklahoma City (Quick editorial note: OKC has NEVER recovered since then – but I digress).
