Avery Bradley's game
winning three
The Eastern Conference Finals shifted to The Land last night for Game 3 as the Boston Celtics, playing without their leading scorer and star point guard in Isaiah Thomas, were looking to stave off the Cleveland Cavaliers and avoid going down 0 – 3 for the series, had a tall task to tame, Alliteration, I Love It! The Cavs pretty much picked up where they left off in Games 1 & 2, as they raced out to a 66 – 50 halftime lead. But in the 2nd half, the Celtics on the advice of their head coach stated “if we fight hard enough, they will let us back into this game” and that’s exactly what happened as the Celtics kept knocking on the door and the Cavs let them back in as Marcus Smart got the start and came up Big Time with 27 points and he went for 7 for 10 from behind the arc and posted career best playoff numbers in points, field goals at 8 and three point field goals at 7. But the Seal the Deal Moment came in the waning seconds of the game as Avery Bradley’s three danced around the rim before dropping through the net with less than a second left and the Celtics upset the Cavaliers 111 – 108 to notch their first win of the series. Kyrie Irvin, Kevin Love and Tristen Thompson each had a huge game for the Cavs, but it was their leader in LeBron James who had one of his worst playoff performances of his career and finished with just 11, a career low in points at home in the playoffs, but he did contribute 6 rebounds and 6 assists had this to say about his game….

Game 4 will be on Tuesday night and the Celtics now have reason to believe they can tie up the series 2 games apiece.

LeBron James wins the
