The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors 115-101 Thursday night to become the third team in NBA Finals history to force a Game 7 after trailing 3-1 in the series. The improbable comeback and LeBron James' 41-point performance drew plenty of social media reaction from across the sports world, most notably from Stephen Curry's wife, Ayesha.
