NBA Finals 2015 Game 6 Results: Warriors vs Cavs for the Championship

NBA Finals 2015 Live Game 6 Score & Results: Golden State Warriors defeat Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6, 105-97, to become 2015 NBA Champions! Andre Iguodala is Finals MVP. READ on for my live updates of the game. Scroll down please...

TWO THINGS: In this NBA Finals 2015 Game 6, airing now on ABC in the US and ABS-CBN in the Philippines, the Golden State Warriors (GSW), with series lead 3-2, are looking to finish off the Cleveland Cavaliers (CLE) and win the championship, while the Cavaliers will try to re-establish themselves as the "hotter team" and force a Game 7.

WHAT I WANT TO HAPPEN: Cavs beat Warriors in Game to force Game 7.

WHAT IFS? If the Golden State Warriors become NBA Finals 2015 Champions, it will be their first in 4 decades, and most likely, the Season Most Valuable Player Steph Curry could also be the Finals MVP. But is it also possible that LeBron James (who's incredibly awesome in the whole of NBA Finals 2015: 2 triple-doubles, 2 almost) will get the MVP crown even if he's from the losing team? I happened only once in NBA history (Jerry West in 1969).

From Game 1 to 5, Steph Curry averages 26.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists, whereas LeBron is averaging 36.6 pts, 12.4 rebs, 8.8 assts.
