So with that said I think there's been just two finals where his team wasn't badly outmatched, the Mavs and the Thunder. Lebron choked away the Mavs series and he played awesome in the 1st Spurs series to steal it away. People make a big deal about the Ray Allen shot but Lebron got them back in that game singlehandedly.

Darth, LeBron played great in game 7 of that Heat Spurs series but he did not single handedly get the Heat back into that game. LeBron worst game was towards the end of that game. Go and rewatch every one knows it was Bosh gettin the rebound and kicking the ball out to Jesus who was their savior not no self anointed Kang James. You are the first person who gave LeBron credit for game 6, No No

Just because he didn't hit the final shot of game 6 doesn't mean he wasn't what got them back into the game. He had a bad game until the 4th and then went berzerk the rest of the game and kept it going into game 7.

Weeellllll....Bron is at 40 points and 16 rebounds. Kyrie at 41, 3 minutes to go. I guess we are going back to Cleveland.

Looks that way. Curry w/ a miserable scoring night. Iggy hasn't done much and Clay has been pretty good, but can't hold the tempo alone. I guess Draymond missing is really affecting them mentally. They had a golden opportunity to end this tonight and now have to go back on the road and silence the Cavs fans.

I didn't give them much of a chance even with Green's suspension. Lebron doing what he should always do but Irving was the biggest star tonight. Not often 41, 16, 7 gets overshadowed. I still think Dubs take this in 6 but would love to see it go 7.

It's actually nice to see Kyrie show up in a big way because he's been much maligned his career in Cleve.

I think GSW wins this in 6 as Green will be back.

However, if it goes to 7, CLE will win it and make history as the first team coming back from 3-1 deficit.

^ I think even if it goes to 7 GSW wins. It could be an epic game for sure but it's hard as hell to win a game 7 on the road. And I think winning a game 7 on the road in the Finals would be even tougher. But I agree that GSW probably wraps this up on Thursday. The Cavs will probably need a similar effort from Lebron and Kyrie to win game 6, they can get it from Lebron easily as a lot of it comes down to how aggressive he wants to be, but don't be surprised if Irving stinks it up.

Solid start from the Cavs. A game 7 would be nice, as long as it is a tight game 7.

Dubs pick a closeout game to go cold. They cannot hit the broad side of a barn right now.

They take Lebron and Kyrie out for even 3 minutes and the game can turn around quick.

I have a feeling the Cavs just lost the game at the end of the 3rd quarter there. They stopped moving the ball the last few quarters and refused to guard Klay. Golden Stare probably wins this game now.

The lead is down to 9 from 22.l Dubs really need to close this out tonight as anything goes in a desperation game 7. Plus Eagle $ appears to have a back problem and Curry is holding his hand alot. Not sure they would be physically fit for game 7.

So the refs force the MVP out w/ some silly foul calls. Anyway, game 7 it is. Lebron & Co have to come up w/ the same kind of scoring and intensity for a 3rd straight game. Can they do it?

There was definitely some home cooking tonight. You can be rest assured the NBA is thrilled to see a game 7. With that said the Cavs were the better team tonight. It was a little dicey at the end of the 3rd but Lebron went on a tear for much of the 4th and that was that.

Iggy's health is a big deal for sure. The loss of Bogut also made life easier for Thompson tonight. The Warriors can't let Thompson and one or both of Irving/Love to have big games otherwise they will be in a lot of trouble. Let Lebron get his but shut down the teammates, that formula will lead to a game 7 win.

Unbelievable game tonight. From beginning to end CAVs were in control. It took almost 6 minutes for GSW to even register on the score board.

Momentum plays a larger role than who has home court. So, go CAVs.
