Celtics complete comeback to stun Cavs at buzzer

Vera Richards | 24 May, 2017, 03:56

And then, when the Cavaliers actually did get open looks, they didn't convert as they had in the first half, when Kevin Love shot 7 of 10 on 3-pointers and scored 22 points.

The Cavaliers dropped to 10-1 in the post-season with their first loss since game four of last year's finals against Golden State.

Game 4 of the series is on Tuesday night in Cleveland. But somehow James produced just one point over the last 16 minutes - he took only six shots - as Cleveland blew a 21-point second-half lead in losing Game 3 on Sunday. At that point, James walked toward the fan and asked him what he has ever done.

LeBron was in a sour mood during his postgame press conference, and being ridiculed in your own arena by a guy who plays in the North Coast Athletic Conference may have had something to do with it.

"I had a tough game period, not just in the second half". He was the scoring engine in the second half, putting up 19 and inspiring his teammates with fearless play. "Me personally, I didn't have it". But me personally, I didn't have it.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Marcus Smart's performance.

There wasn't much to gush about, that's for sure. James had been leading the team in win probability added before that (plus-13 percent per game) and ranks eighth overall this postseason.

In the following game after he scores less than 20 points, James has averaged 27.8 points.

Typically, James bounces back following poor games.

In Game 3, Boston fell behind by as many as 21 points but for the most part stayed within arm's reach of the Cavaliers which was a major improvement over Games 1 and 2 in Boston. James had just 11 points (three in the second half) on 4-for-13 shooting, including 0-for-4 on three-pointers.

"It was a weird game", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

Bradley finished with 20 points, making 8 of 23 field goal attempts including 3 of 8 from beyond the arc.

"He knows that. We know that. Just expect him to be better in Game 4".

Boston's 111-108 victory moved them within a game of Cleveland and keeps the franchise's hopes alive despite losing star point guard Isaiah Thomas for the remainder of the postseason.

"No blame. We're all to blame", Lue said Monday of James's display. Jerebko spoke to the 'Inside the NBA' crew after the game, "We just kept fighting". “We have to play a lot better.

"The guy is a tremendous basketball player". They made a lot of plays. They're a pleasure to coach because there's never any finger pointing. "We only had two fast-break points, so they neutralized what we wanted to do".

James, who is trying to win his seventh consecutive conference title, tried to find a silver lining on an otherwise forgettable night. "I feel like you have to have some type of adversity in order to be successful".

Let's break down how it happened. "They were able to get back and get their defense set, and we really didn't attack the way we're capable of attacking".
