James, made 16 of 27 shots from the floor, added 11 assists, eight rebounds, four steals and three blocked shots helping Cavaliers level the best-of-seven NBA Finals at 3-3, setting the stage for a dramatic seventh-game Sunday at Oakland, California.

"We've been able to beat a great team two straight games to force a game seven. I can't wait," James said. "I'm going to give everything I've got in game seven."

Four-time NBA MVP Lebron James scored 18 consecutive Cavaliers points over the end of the third quarter and the start of the fourth.

Cavaliers are trying their strongest comeback in NBA Finals history by becoming the first team to rally from a 3-1 deficit for the title.

"Records are made to be broken," James said. "We gave it our all tonight and we were able to come away with the victory."

For the Golden State, things did not go down well as a frustrated Stephen Curry, the NBA Most Valuable Player and scoring leader, though scored 30 points but was ejected for the first time in his career, fouling out then hurling his mouthpiece into the crowd in anger to earn banishment to the locker room.

Warrior forward Draymond Green, who is just back from a one-game ban, had to be restrained by coach Steve Kerr in the dying minutes as he argued with a referee over a foul call.
