The entire Celtics team went 11-22 on three-pointers in the second half while the Cavaliers missed just about every shot they took. "We know that. Just expecting him to be better in Game 4", Smith said.
As much as this series was about James, Irving helped turn the tide of the series with a 42-point effort in Game 4.
Cleveland Cavaliers'Kevin Love (0) jesters to the crowd during the second half of Game 4 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics, Tuesday, May 23, 2017, in Cleveland. Thats what I always think, when people of his stature or people like him, youve got to play confident the whole night and play aggressive. For what he does, what he brings, its not enough.
"He knows that. We know that".
The Cleveland Cavaliers made it to the free throw line 13 times during the first quarter of Game 3. LeBron James struggled with just 11 points and six turnovers. The Cavs, in the long run, likely aren't too anxious about losing a close Game 3, given the way they dominated in the first two games. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games, 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five Conference Finals games.
After back-to-back humiliations at home, the BostonCeltics went to Cleveland-without top scorer Isaiah Thomas-and ended the Cavs' flawless playoff run with a 111-108 win in Game 3. "It's going to take a full 48-minute game to do it".
Durant, who attracted controversy after his blockbuster move from the Oklahoma City Thunder a year ago to the Warriors, was delighted to be back in the NBA Finals once again. "But like I said (following Game 3), I'm not going to be critical of the best player in the world". And best of all, Tristan Thompson had a phenomenal game, including what felt like 15 offensive rebounds (seven, in reality) and a thunderous blocked shot. But this to me was a ideal example [of the Cavs saying] 'We're going to win the series. "He sent everybody a text, and then Kelly just called him, or he might have been calling Kelly right after the game, so it was nice to see a smile on his face".
If they are to somehow find a way to beat the Cavs on their home floor a second straight game, it'll most likely come after fending off a strong surge from James.
"LeBron James understands how to play the game, and he understands what this team needs from him", Avery Bradley said.
It speaks to just how weird Game 3 was that Jerebko nearly had as many points as LeBron James, who had a shockingly ineffective performance. "We fought and came out with the victory".
Boston trailed 2-0 in the first round against Chicago, but won the next four.
Boston is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 games. Johnson was replaced in the starting lineup for Game 2 by Gerald Green, but after a 44-point loss and with Thomas out, Stevens went back to Johnson in Game 3.
Boston'sJonas Jerebko's baseline jumper put the Celtics ahead 108-106 with 30 seconds left before Irving scored on a drive to tie it with 10.7 seconds left. My teammates did a great job of keeping us in the game and building that lead.
As far as the incident with the fan, we can only assume it was because the guy heckled the Cavaliers superstar, so he played his "I'm LeBron James, Superstar" card and had the fan dismissed from Quicken Loans Arena.
In the following game after he scores less than 20 points, James has averaged 27.8 points.
