James drove past Curry for a three-point play with 50 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. That said, the odds indicate that this is looking like James' greatest challenge yet - before this series against the Warriors, the longest odds James had ever faced were +360 in his first Finals appearance against the San Antonio Spurs in 2007.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr went with Looney against Houston but could go a number of ways in this series. Refs do seem to give more leniency to teams regarding this violation when it comes to the end of games, especially a title-winning one.
