Enes Kanter (31/22/1) had a monster game for New York as he matched a career-high for rebounds. Kristaps Porzingis (22/7/0) also contributed but was just 6-of-19 from the field.
CAVALIERS (24-10) 92; WARRIORS (27-7) 99
The defending champions secured the win in this finals rematch behind big performances from their All-Stars. Kevin Durant (25/7/3) led the way, Klay Thompson (24/7/2) had a strong night and Draymond Green (12/12/11) posted a triple-double.
Kevin Love (31/18/0) produced a terrific individual performance and was the leading scorer for Cleveland with a dominant double-double. LeBron James (20/6/6) put up decent numbers but had a bad night by his standards as he shot just 7-of-18.
WIZARDS (19-15) 111; CELTICS (27-10) 103

ROCKETS (25-7) 107; THUNDER (19-15) 112
OKC's big three inspired a big win at home as MVP Russell Westbrook (31/6/11) once again led the charge. Paul George (24/5/4) and Carmelo Anthony (20/5/0) also played their part by producing efficient shooting nights to make it five straight wins.
Houston was missing Chris Paul once again and relied heavily on James Harden (29/8/14) and he posted a near triple-double. Eric Gordon (20/3/1) and Trevor Ariza (20/4/1) also contributed offensively but it wasn't enough to prevent a third straight loss.
TIMBERWOLVES (21-13) 121; LAKERS (11-21) 104
Minnesota proved too strong for a slightly shorthanded Lakers team as Jimmy Butler (23/5/8) led them in scoring. Karl-Anthony Towns (21/10/2) put up a double and Taj Gibson (23/9/0) shot an efficient 11-of-13 from the field.
L.A. was without Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram so the task of scoring was firmly on the shoulders of rookie Kyle Kuzma (31/3/4) and he once again put up big numbers. Jordan Clarkson (17/6/7) stepped into the starting lineup and did well but they proved to be no match for the T-Wolves.
