In the fourth quarter, league MVP Steph Curry was tossed from the game. The crowd was already on their feet, but that sent them into overdrive.
With a little more than 2 minutes left in the game, all the Cavs starters came out.
James put up 41 points, 8 rebounds and 11 assists. It was a big game for Thompson, who had 15 points and 16 rebounds.
This NBA postseason has already been one for the record books.
Against the Atlanta Hawks, the Cavs set the NBA record for most 3-pointers with 25. On Monday, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving became the first teammates to score more than 40 points each in an NBA Finals game.
Cleveland is hoping to make history again by becoming the first team to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the title. Right now, the Warriors lead the best-of-seven series, 3-2.
