There will be a Game 7 in the NBA Finals on Sunday night in Oakland.
The Cleveland Cavaliers became just the third team in NBA history to force a Game 7 after being down, 3-1, in the series after a 115-101 win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 at Quicken Loans Arena Thursday night.
Small forward LeBron James guided the Cavaliers to the victory with a 41-point, 11-assist effort in 43 minutes of play. In addition to his offensive production, James pulled down eight rebounds, stole four passes and blocked four shots.
Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving (23 points), shooting guard J.R. smith (14) and center Tristan Thompson (15 points, 16 rebounds) joined James in double figures.
The Warriors’ backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 55 points, but Curry fouled out with 4:22 to play in the fourth quarter and was assessed a technical for an emotional outburst with an official following his final infraction of the night.
