NBA Finals: James & Irving each score 41 points as Cavs force Game 6


06-14-2016 15:58 BJT

The NBA Finals. Golden State held a 3-1 stranglehold over the Cleveland Cavaliers, and needed just one more victory to clinch their second straight title. But the Dubs would be short-handed, as they would be playing without suspended power forward Draymond Green.

And in his absence, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving would have a field day, getting into the paint without the G-state star patrolling the lane, as the Cavs would look to extend the series to six games.

And fans at Oracle showing their appreciation for the suspended forward -- also having fun at LeBron's expense. Early on Klay Thompson is able to get the foul line jumper -- the Warriors shooting guard would have a big night. LeBron James would also be stellar shooting the ball -- as the opening half was close. Thompson would show off his range as he hits from well out -- and that gives his side the lead. Klay would finish with 26 at the break. And 37 in the game.

And LeBron would show his toughness. Beating Mo Speights on the perimeter and then throwing it down. The three-point play ties things, as we go into halftime all square at 61. The king had 25 at recess. Already missing the suspended Draymond, the Warriors lose another rim protector as Andrew Bogut goes down -- with a knee injury. He would leave the game. Second half -- and Kyrie Irving starts to get hot -- and hits from the land beyond. It is in an 8-point game

More from the Cavs point guard as he once again finds the range -- and he is keeping his team in front. Steph Curry would try and bring the Dubs back -- hitting from the land beyond, He had 25 but the deficit is still 6. Irving would be a beast in the second half -- as he gets the hoop and the harm, on his way to a 41-point explosion. That signals the fans to exit the building.

Cleveland hold on for a 112-97 victory as LeBron and Kyrie become the first teammates to each score 40 or more in an NBA finals game, as they force game six in the series.
