GSW take 3-2 lead, despite 40 from LeBron

LeBron James’ second triple-double of the finals – 40 points, 14 rebounds, 11 assists and 1 steal – wasn’t enough as Stephen Curry hits seven 3-pointers (37 points) and gets one step closer to his maiden NBA Championship.

 

The extra day of rest was noticeable as James came out strong and teamed up with J.R. Smith who was 4-of-7 FGs early on.

 

Veteran Andre Iguodala sustained his impress production, knocking in 14 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists and 3 steals.

LeBron James assisted or scored on 16 of Cleveland’s 17 FGs in the first half (ESPN.com).

Coming into the last quarter the Warriors had a 73-67 lead over the Cavaliers – and then things really heated up.

Harrison Barnes first did this:

Before James and Curry traded some nasty threes.

Each time the Warriors looked like they were going to run away with it, James and the Cavaliers dug deep and stayed within reach.

In the end Curry found his groove that won him the season’s MVP award.

Golden State will have a chance to close out the series on Wednesday at 11:00am (AEST).
