NBA fans will want to to watch live online as the Golden State Warriors attempt to close out the Finals on the road in Game 6 against the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night — a victory that would give the Warriors their first NBA championship in 40 years. Golden State won their first and only NBA Championship in 1975 when the Warriors led by Rick Barry swept Wes Unseld, Elvin Hayes, and the Washington Bullets 4-0.
Things have not gone nearly as smoothly for the current edition of the Golden State franchise, whose acknowledged leader is NBA MVP Stephen Curry, as they’ve come up against a one-man force in Lebron James, the only player since 1985 to score 35 points with 11 rebounds and 11 assists in a playoff game. James has done it three times this year, twice in the Finals.
Since 1985, players with 35/11/11 in playoffs: LeBron (2009), LeBron (2010), LeBron (2015), LeBron (2015), LeBron (2015).

Even with his team needing two straight wins to win the NBA Finals series, James remained unnervingly confident heading into Game 6. Buy why? What made him so sure of himself?
“I feel confident because I’m the best player in the world,” James said. “It’s that simple.”

After falling behind 2-1 in the series, Golden State Coach Steve Kerr moved center Andrew Bogut to the bench and shifted to a “small-ball” lineup that emphasized quickness and mobility.
Despite the continued incredible performance by James, with Cavaliers stars Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving both out with injuries, the Warriors speed and aggression simply wore the Cavaliers down. Cleveland must now rely on pure will plus another historic night from Lebon James to push the NBA Finals to a deciding Game 7.
