Basketball fans are in store for an NBA Finals rematch after the defending champion Warriors rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to upend the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-88 in the series deciding Game 7 of the Western Conference finals on Monday night. 

Stephen Curry, the regular season's first-ever unanimous MVP, led all scorers with 36 points bringing his PPG average upto 26.7 for the 2016 playoffs.

LeBron James and the Cavaliers - who ousted the Toronto Raptors in six games to win the Eastern Conference - will once again bid for Cleveland's first professional sports title since the Browns won the NFL Championship in 1964. In case you're wondering, that was three years before the Packers beat the Cheifs in the first Super Bowl.

In 2015, Golden State defeated the Cavs in six games with Andre Iguodala taking series MVP honors. It's worth noting that this time around Cleveland will have deep-shooting big man Kevin Love. He was injured (shoulder) in the Cavs's first round series with Boston last year, forcing him to miss the remained of the postseason. In this year's playoffs, the 6-foot-10 Love is averaging 32.5 minutes and 17.3 points per game.
