FLIP FOR WHY

Golden State Warriors



“Every game in the series takes on a different shape, but Game 7s are 10 times that because you throw everything you have out there on the floor. Just one last effort to get a win.’




Warriors' Steph Curry before rallying his team to a Game 7 win to make Finals.
  • Won 2 of the last 3 NBA Finals.
  • Deep bench with sharp-shooters.

Cleveland Cavaliers


“It’s ridiculous, and he doesA it at this level and with the pressure, with the scrutiny – doesn’t matter.”

Celtics coach Brad Stevens on LeBron.
  • LeBron James has gone to the Finals every season since 2010 – longest streak since 1960s.
  • With a weak roster, he played all 48 mins of Game 7 vs. Boston Celtics getting them to the Finals.
