The Scoop: cleaning up yesterday’s action in the Association…
NBA Finals (Game 6)
Top DOG of the Night: LeBron James (41 points, 11 assists, 8 rebounds)
From tip-off, you knew this series would be extended to seven games. Led by another masterpiece from LeBron (41, 11 & 8), Cleveland ripped off a 13-2 run to start the game and turned in an intense, defensive effort all night long.
Trailing by as many as 24 points, GS made a couple runs to get back into the game but could never get over the hump. Stephen Curry rediscovered his shooting touch but became the first MVP since Shaquille O’Neal (in 2000) to foul out of a Finals game:
Play of the Day:
The two best words in sports: GAME 7. We were destined to come to this point: two teams, with completely different storylines, battling for the ultimate prize.
LeBron & Steph fighting for supremacy. Now, you better believe Steph is pissed off after tough calls & failing to wrap up the series before a winner-take-all scenario.
But will his Dubs be able to find an answer for the surging Cavaliers, featuring the most critiqued athlete of our generation laying it all out on the line for his starved city?
