LeBron James was brilliant up against elimination, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 115-101 win over the Golden State Warriors, Thursday at Quicken Loans Arena.
James had 41 points, 11 assists, eight rebounds, four steals and three blocks in what could have been a closeout game for the Warriors. Kyrie Irving added 23 points on 18 shots.
Golden State, meanwhile, was led by Stephen Curry, who scored 30 points on 20 shots before being ejected for the reaction to his sixth foul in the fourth quarter. Klay Thompson pitched in with 25 points.
Game 7 is set for Sunday at 8 p.m. ET at Oracle Arena.
