Both the Eastern and the Western Conference finals have turned out to be more than a handful for fans of NBA.
In the East, Lebron James and the Cavs pushed their best-of-seven series to its seventh game after their 109-99 win in Game 6. In the West, Golden State Warriors also forced Game 7 after their 115-86 Game 6 win over the Rockets.
Saying that the NBA post-season has been eventful is an understatement. Most fans never expected events to play out this way because it has been more competitive than expected. With Game 7 looming in both conference finals, which teams will confirm their place in the final?
In the East, Cleveland Cavaliers have found it increasingly difficult against Boston Celtics. And the reason is not far-fetched. For the Celtics, it has been all about team work. From Al Horford to Tatum, all the work has been evenly spread across board with no player having to do too much work.
But the reverse has been the case for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Since this final began, it’s like Lebron James has been the only Cavs player featuring in the final. Everything the Cavs have achieved so far in this best-of-seven series – including forcing a Game 7 – has been down to King James and his legendary performances.
He has single-handedly dragged the Cavs this far. Whether his teammates have turned up or not, Lebron James has cared less. He has decided to go solo with this one.
Whether Lebron James is more ambitious than his teammates or not is arguable. But the obvious is true: Without Lebron, the Cavs would have been eliminated a long time ago.

In the West, it’s been a battle between two of the most talented sides in the NBA franchise. On one side, there’s Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and co. On the other, there’s James Harden, Chris Paul and co. And this is just one of the reasons why 4 out of their six meetings so far have ended with a match total of over 200 points.

Both teams have players who are notorious for scoring a lot of points, both in the regular season and during the post-regular season. Unlike the Cavs, these two teams have heavily relied on strong team-work, downing the shots from downtown when it matters, dribbling through a crowd of players and confusing opposition teams with tactical moves.
For the Warriors, it’s been all about different players stepping up for each other. Whenever Steph is not getting the points, Klay Thompson takes over. And when Klay is off form, Kevin Durant takes over. It’s almost the same with the Rockets, who rely heavily on James Harden and his intelligent style of play.
