Celtics Win Game 3 over the Cavaliers

The Celtics gave the Cavaliers a shock today with a great comeback win with 111-108 routing of Cleveland.  The Celtics came in hurting from the 2 game crushes and they thought they were just playing for formality with their top playmaker Isaiah Thomas out on injury for the rest of the season.  This time they proved that being number 1 seed in the East is not an accident for them.

The Cavaliers lead as much as 21points but with a great defensive stop by the Celtics, they were able to make a comeback.  With the great shooting by Marcus Smart (27 points), and helped by Avery Bradley (20 points), they were able to eke out a 3 point win seconds to go into the ball game.  With 10 seconds to go with score tied at 108, Bradley fired off a wayward three pointer and it almost went out, however with the leprechaun backing them up, it went back in.  What a great finish to a great comeback display by the Celtics.

The Cavs were led by great shooting by Irving for 29 points and Kevin Love with 28.  James scored only 11 points this time creating a big vacuum in their offense.

Game 4 will still be in Cleveland, Wednesday May 24 (Thursday Morning May 25 Philippine Time).  Para phrasing, Lebron he said, maybe its time it happened to let the Cavaliers regroup and focus.  

Series is now at 2-1 for the Cavaliers at the Eastern Conference Finals of the NBA.
