Last night was an incredible night for basketball fans. Game 6 was highly anticipated and both the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors came to play. The Cavaliers forced a Game 7 after beating the Warriors 115-101. LeBron James led the way by putting up monster numbers yet again. He had 41 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds in last nights game which followed an amazing performance in Monday’s Game 5 (41 points, 7 assists, and 16 rebounds). With him was Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson who also had exceptional games. Irving put up 23 points and Thompson shot 6-6 with 15 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in what some say may be his best playoff performance ever.
The Warriors’ splash brothers had a good performance, but the rest of the team struggled from the field. Stephen Curry had 30 points and Klay Thompson had 25 and they were the only players on their teams that shot more than 10 times. Draymond Green shot 3-7, Andre Iguodala shot 2-5 and Harrison Barnes missed all 8 of his shots.
Stephen Curry fouled out with a little more than 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter which led to him throwing his mouth guard and getting in the face of officials before walking to the locker room.
A very physical and emotional game, but a great one. We look forward to seeing the outcome of one of, if not the most anticipated Game 7 of NBA Finals history.
Game 7 will be played at Oracle Arena on Sunday, June 19th at 7:00 PM CT
