LeBron James put together his second straight 41-point performance in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, which the Cavaliers won 115–101.

He is the first player to score 40 points in back-to-back games in the Finals since Shaquille O’Neal did it 16 years ago.

James torched the Warriors all night, getting inside and finishing tough looks, and hitting jumper after jumper, even through tight contests.

The four-time MVP finished with 11 assists, eight rebounds, four steals and three blocks in addition to his tantalizing offensive performance.
