Reigning NBA champions GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS will play CLEVELAND CAVALIERS in the NBA finals for the fourth successive year  after  a  STEPH CURRY inspired second half comeback gave the defending champions  a 101-92 victory over HOUSTON ROCKETS.

Curry scored 27 points as WARRIORS overcame a 15-point deficit to triumph in their game seven, securing a 4-3 series victory overall.

The  CLEVELAND  CAVALIERS  however  defeated the BOLTON CELTICS  on Sunday to set up the mouth-watering encounter.

The Championship series begins on 1 June as the CAVS visit the WARRIORS in OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA.

The WARRIORS  were  champions  in 2015 and 2017, while the CAVS claimed the 2016 title.
