I'm not sure how to wire up the LED Matrix corrctly. I followed the steps in this guide: https://github.com/hzeller/rpi-rgb-led-matrix/blob/master/wiring.md In this tutorial the matrix has 3 GND pins. But in the wiring diagram below the GND is only connected with 1 pin (pin no. 6). Can I also use the pins 9 and 14 for the other GND or must all GND wires connected with the same pin?

All grounds are the same. They are all connected to each other internally. It does not matter if you use one or several. Do what is most convenient.
