Oakland (US): Versatile Cleveland playmaker LeBron James and Stephen Curry, currently the biggest NBA stars, have a date with destiny in today’s decisive seventh game of the 70th NBA Finals.

Back-to-back 41-point games by “King” James sparked victories that pulled the Cavaliers from a 3-1 hole to level the best-of-seven series and set up a tension-packed, winner-take-all spectacle. Defending champion Golden State, using tough defense and team depth, was on the brink of repeat titles while James and the Cavaliers showed grit and refused to quit.

Now the Cavaliers are on the verge of completing the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history, becoming the first team to win the crown after trailing 3-1.
