LeBron James pours in 41 points in blowout win to force Game 7 in NBA finals

LeBron James had 41 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers forced a Game 7 in the NBA finals with a 115-101 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.

James who scored 18 straight points during one stretch finished with 41 for the second straight game in another overpowering performance for the Cavs, who have come back to tie the best-of-seven series at three games apiece.
