Cavs dump Warriors to force Game 7, makes NBA Finals history

On Thursday night (Friday in Philippine Time), the Cavaliers won Game 6 of the NBA Finals on its home court against the defending champion Golden State Warriors, 115-101, to force the do-or-die final shot of the series.

Cavs have succeeded from the agony of the 2015 NBA Finals when the Warriors sealed the championship in Game 6 at Quicken Loans Arena. Reports said that only 2 of 32 teams down 3-1 in the Finals have managed to take the series to seven games, the last time in 1966.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving scored 41 and 23 points respectively to devastate the Warriors.
