Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry combined for seven 3-pointers in the third quarter Saturday night, rallying the Golden State Warriors from a 10-point halftime deficit to a 115-86 run-away in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals in Oakland, Calif. The teams will get a travel day Sunday before meeting one final time in Houston on Monday night, with the Game 7 winner advancing to the NBA Finals to face either the Boston Celtics or Cleveland Cavaliers, who play their Game 7 in Boston on Sunday. Riding a two-game winning streak but without injured point guard Chris Paul, the Rockets shocked the defending champs with an early burst of four consecutive 3-pointers to help produce a 39-22 lead after one quarter.

Shaq and the rest of the NBA on TNT crew suggest Advil will solve Kevin Love’s concussion issues

Concussions and long-term brain damage remain some of the most serious issues in sports, but don’t tell that to the four talking heads of NBA on TNT. Kevin Love is out for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics and that is probably going to hurt the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are 1-4 at Game 7 site TD Garden between the regular season and the playoffs. When the topic came up in the pregame show of Game 6 of the Western Conference finals, Shaquille O’Neal threw out what he would do in Love’s situation, possibly as a joke.

Celtics coach defends ‘outstanding’ Horford over Game 6

To any detractors of Al Horford, Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has his back. Horford came under media scrutiny following the Celtics' 109-99 loss at Cleveland in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals Friday night. In the series-tying defeat, Boston's veteran center only took two first-half shots and went scoreless in the first two quarters as the Cavaliers took control of the game — primarily in the second quarter.

LeBron, back in Boston, for another Cavs farewell

74007d52836649a6bc2076040895a18f

LeBron James and the depleted Cleveland Cavaliers won't get any sympathy from the Celtics when they return to Boston for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. Already laboring to reach his eighth straight NBA Finals with a supporting crew made mostly of cast-offs and throw-ins, James lost the only other All-Star on the roster on Saturday when Kevin Love was declared out for the series finale with a concussion. Now, in what could be his final game in a Cleveland uniform — again — James will have to do it largely on his own.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without forward Kevin Love for game seven of the NBA Eastern Conference finals against Boston on Sunday after the forward was placed in the league's concussion protocol. The Cavs and Celtics will be battling to determine who will represent the East in the NBA Finals. Love exited the Cavs' game-six win over the Celtics on Friday in the first quarter after a clash of heads with Boston's Jayson Tatum.

No Love for Game 7 doesn’t necessarily mean advantage Celtics

9be46473e4e2b525a7f0c1eee8d8a334

BOSTON –The idea of the Cavs going into a must-win Game 7 without Kevin Love, who's in the NBA concussion protocol and won't play Sunday night, should put the Celtics at a significant advantage, right? One of the keys to Boston's success has been the impact Al Horford makes offensively, particularly at home. Horford has been at his best as a scorer in this series when matched up against Love.

Cavs’ Kevin Love to miss Game 7 vs. Celtics with concussion

201805252014728915926

Kevin Love won't be able to help LeBron James and the Cavaliers in Game 7 against the Celtics. Love was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol and the All-Star forward will miss Sunday's series finale of the Eastern Conference finals, a personal blow and yet another challenge for Cleveland to overcome. The Cavaliers said Love, who inadvertently bashed heads with Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum in the first quarter of Game 6, experienced concussion-like symptoms Saturday before the team's flight to Boston.

LeBron lays out plan for injured leg ahead of Game 7

LeBron James didn't let a little pain keep him from forcing a Game 7 against the Boston Celtics with a monster effort on Friday night. James finished with 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in a 109-99 win at Quicken Loans Arena, tying the Eastern Conference finals at 3-3, but a fourth quarter incident with his own teammate surely gave Cavaliers' fans some worry. As James turned to return up the court after a play, teammate Larry Nance Jr. fell into his right leg and caused it to buckle.
