Community Shootaround: NBA Finals Game 6

The sixth game of the 2016 NBA Finals takes place tonight in Cleveland, exactly one year after the Warriors dispatched the Cavaliers in Game 6 of the 2015 NBA Finals to win their first championship in 40 years. The Cavs are hoping history won’t repeat itself tonight — a Cleveland win would force a Game 7 in Oakland on Sunday.

After the series opened with a pair of dominant wins by the Warriors, the two teams have looked a little more evenly matched over the course of the last three games. The Cavaliers won at home in Game 3, then each team stole a game on the other club’s home court to give Golden State a 3-2 lead as the series returns to Quicken Loans Arena.

The Cavaliers have looked excellent at home throughout this year’s postseason, with the lone exception of their Game 4 loss to the Warriors, and they’re coming off an impressive Game 5 win in which LeBron James and Kyrie Irving each exploded for 40+ points. However, the Warriors were missing Draymond Green in that game, and if shots aren’t falling quite so easily for either James or Irving tonight, things could look very different.

Today’s Community Shootaround discussion question is a simple one: How do you expect Game 6 to play out? Will LeBron and Kyrie carry the Cavaliers to another win? Could another Cleveland player to step up to help lead the Cavs to victory? Or is tonight’s game going to be the final contest of the 2015/16 season? Will Green’s return result in the Warriors’ second straight road victory? Will the Stephen Curry and/or Klay Thompson show win out?

Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on Game 6. We look forward to hearing what you have to say.

I expect it to go to game 7 where the cavs will lose again another finals, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they lose today either. I feel like home-court will help the supporting cast of the cavs, like Love, JR, etc. But I wouldn’t put money on it.

The Green Effect will dismantle the Cavs coupled with the Splash Bros bombs, GS should repeat.

Warriors in 7. Cavs will win tonight with home court advantage. I believe the Warriors are too good to lose 3 games in a row. The only way the cavs can win an game 7 is if kyrie and lebron can perform like they both did in game 5 and even that may not be enough. In order for the cavs to even have a shot in game 7 they need either JR or K Love to contribute on the offensive end. Also Cleveland has to hope that one of the splash bros are off in game 7.

I believe in divine intervention lol. As a Cleveland sports fan, I have to. With all that being said, klay seems the more likely of the two to go off at this point. Curry looks tired and beat up. If Cleveland can get some production from someone other than bron or kyrie, we have a legit shot to win this thing. Like hake Taylor said “there is only one thing to do. Win the whole f$&@(g thing”. Go cavs!!

Agree Curry looks hurt rather than tired.

I want a game 7 and everything is pointing towards it being a game 7 but I have a feeling Golden State will come out and dominate and put this away tonight. I’m really hoping we get a good game tonight, no blow out and the Cavs can pull off a win at the end so we get one more game. Not ready for the season to be over. Would love to get a game 7 on Sunday so that way the NBA draft doesn’t seem like such a long wait lol. Either way I am excited about this game… Read more »

This series has been like a backyard fight both teams going back-and-forth landing haymakers. Tonight is Golden State’s turn to take a swing. I think Golden State will hoist the trophy up in Cleveland again!

I think LeBron keeps the hot hand but not sure Kyrie will. If JR is hitting threes and someone can off the bench and contribute or if Love is playing well we see Game 7

The question now is who wins game 7 I’m sticking with Lebron and the cavs especially with kyrie playing like this
