Kyrie Irving, LeBron James Make History In Cavaliers’ Game 5 Win Vs. Warriors

Don’t count out the Cleveland Cavaliers quite yet.

The Golden State Warriors had a chance to clinch back-to-back NBA championships Monday with a Game 5 win over the Cavs, but LeBron James and Kyrie Irving made sure that didn’t happen with a 112-97 victory.

Irving and James became the first teammates in NBA Finals history to both score 40-plus points. Both players finished with 41 points.

Here are some of our favorite highlights on a night to remember for Irving, James and the Cavaliers.

This means there will be a Game 6 on Thursday night in Cleveland. Tip-off is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET.
