Andrew Bogut, who sat out on Tuesday with a sore ankle, could return for Thursday's game against the Bucks.

Bogut probably got more of a rest than an injury miss tonight, but coach Mark Jackson said after the game that he might use Bogut against the Bucks. Stay tuned.

Terry Rozier struggled during Boston's Game 7 loss on Sunday, shooting 2-of-14 from the field for four points, four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

Neither team could get their perimeter shots to fall, and Boston finished 7-of-39 from deep -- Rozier himself was 0-of-10. He filled in admirably without Kyrie Irving (knee surgery) in the playoffs, but shot a combined 37-of-98 from the field (37.8%) during the Eastern Conference finals. With tonight's game, he's just the third player since 1963 to attempt at least 10 three-pointers without a single make -- James Harden went 0-of-11 from deep in Game 5 vs. Golden State this week, and John Starks went 0-of-11 vs. Houston in 1994. Rozier shot 38.1% from deep this season, easily a career-high, but it's safe to assume he'll continue working on his range all summer.

The Cavaliers advanced to the Finals with an 87-79 road win on Sunday, taking Game 7 behind LeBron James' 35 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and two blocks.

LeBron played every second of the game in yet another masterful performance, as coach Ty Lue was true to his word -- asked before the game if he planned for LBJ to play all 48 minutes, Lue replied, "Not all 48, no ... but if I have to [play him] I will." James committed eight turnovers but also made 12-of-24 FGs and 8-of-11 FTs, bullying his way to his eighth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals. He's won 24 straight Eastern Conference playoff series and this latest achievement was all the more impressive since Cleveland fell down 0-2 and lost Kevin Love (concussion) in Game 6. Rival teams in the East have yet to figure out how to stop LeBron, but he'll face a stiff test vs. either the Rockets or Warriors in the Finals, beginning May 31.

Kevon Looney (sore left toe) and Andre Iguodala (leg) are being listed as questionable for Monday's Game 7 against the Rockets.

This is the first we're hearing of a toe injury for Looney, but it would be surprising to see a sore toe hold him out of an elimination game. Steve Kerr already said he doesn't expect Iguodala to play tomorrow, so he sounds a bit closer to doubtful than questionable. Check back for another update following Monday morning's shootaround.

LeBron James (leg) confirmed that he'll be good to go for Sunday's Game 7 in Boston.

"It’s been better, but I’ll be ready tonight," said James of his right leg. Larry Nance fell back into James' leg during Game 6, but LBJ played through it, and that's exactly what he'll do tonight with Cleveland's season on the line. He didn't sit out a single game during his age-32 season, and Game 7 will mark his 100th game of the year, tying the most games he's ever played in a single season.

Jeff Green will start Game 7 against the Celtics on Sunday.

He'll replace Kevin Love and start his first game since Game 1 of the first round against Indiana. Green logged 31 minutes in Game 6, his most of the playoffs. He had 14 points, but he'll probably have to score at least that much if the Cavs want to advance to the NBA Finals for a fourth straight year.

Stephen Curry scored 29 points during a 115-86 victory in Game 6 against the Rockets on Saturday, adding five rebounds, six assists, five 3-pointers and matching a postseason career-high three blocks.

He started off slow but picked it up in the second half hitting four 3-pointers and scoring 16 points. This was a statement game for Curry and it’s no secret that the Warriors are at their best when Steph is running the offense. The Rockets certainly knew that as they held the Warriors to 93.0 points per game in the previous two as they kept the passes down, but Steph dominated during the second half as the Warriors crushed Houston 64-25 in the second half. Curry is averaging 30.2 points per game inside Oracle this series compared to just 18.6 in Houston, so we'll see if that trend continues in a critical Game 7 on Monday.
May 27 - 12:38 AM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com, the chances of Chris Paul (hamstring) playing in Game 7 on Monday are "less likely than likely, but working every angle to try."

You don't hear that verbiage on an injury too often, but it still seems like he's closer to doubtful than anything else. Without Paul, even at home, the Rockets will have an uphill battle ahead of them to make it to their first NBA Finals since 1995. We'll know more after he's re-evaluated once the team returns to Houston.
May 27 - 12:37 AM

Klay Thompson scored 35 points, making 9-of-14 3-pointers with six rebounds, two assists and four steals in Game 6 against the Rockets on Saturday.

He loves Game 6 elimination games. You might remember Klay going off for 19 points in the fourth at OKC in Game 6 during the 2016 Western Conference Finals, and he was asked about it after the game. "I don't wanna go home. We worked too hard this season to go home," Klay said after tonight's win. This is the first time both Conference Finals have reached a Game 7 since 1979. Back then there was no 3-point line, but there will be plenty of those in Houston on Monday when Klay and the Dubs come to town.
May 27 - 12:20 AM

Andre Iguodala (leg) said he considers himself questionable on Monday against the Rockets.

There really hasn't been much optimism on Iguodala. Coach Steve Kerr said today that he wouldn't play him until he can run, and he's also having trouble moving laterally. The Warriors really couldn't find a fifth option until the second half, so maybe Kerr mixes it up. Expect to see Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston, Nick Young and maybe even Pat McCaw see some run.
May 26 - 11:57 PM

James Harden scored 32 points with seven rebounds, nine assists, three steals, four 3-pointers and a postseason-high nine turnovers in a 115-86 Game 6 loss against the Warriors on Saturday.

He did all he could to keep Houston in this game, but the Rockets had 21 turnovers as the biggest problem today. Harden now has five career playoff games with at least nine turnovers, giving him the most such games ever (LeBron James has three). On the plus side, Harden was able to snap out of a brutal 0-of-22 slump from deep with a couple treys in the first quarter. He'll need it to come together in Game 7 at Toyota Center on Monday.
May 26 - 11:57 PM

Clint Capela scored two points (1-of-4 FG, 0-of-2 FT) with 16 rebounds and an assist in Houston's 115-86 Game 6 loss to Golden State on Saturday.

He didn't score until the 5:58 mark in the fourth quarter and the Rockets were -32 when he was on the floor. This was his lowest scoring game of the postseason and worst +/- of the entire season. Capela was big on the boards, but he'll need a better performance in Game 7 if the Rockets want to win.
