Cavs school Celtics, trim deficit in Eastern Conference finals

Cleveland outscored Boston by 28 in winning three of the last five.

If this series goes back to even, I am not sure the Celtics can whether a LeBron James storm.

The Cavaliers got just what they needed in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. Boston coach Brad Stevens said the Celtics would have to consider lineup changes "because of the way (Cleveland is) playing".

James, before the series began, said: "He's their rock. He's a great player and that's what he does, so we have to fix that". "They played very, very hard, they got into us, but at the same time, we have to do our stuff better through that". "It's going to be a great atmosphere". "Doesn't get better than that", he said.

"Personally, I think I did a (poor) job defensively with LeBron", Morris said.

LeBron James scored 44 points in the latest Cavaliers victory, while Kyle Korver scored 14. In Game 3, a fifth of their shots came after 6+ dribbles by a single player. They missed numerous layups and even a handful of dunks.

Moments later, James drilled a 3-pointer from the left wing to finally put away the young Celtics, who will now feel the enormous pressure of trying to hold off the three-time champion. Horford sounded confident he would have more opportunities in Game 4. And on the road, literally it's just you against everybody else. Terry Rozier notched 16 points and 11 assists, Al Horford tallied 15 points and Marcus Morris scored 10.

Boston's starters held their own, but none of them was able to match James when it mattered most. However, Stevens did not rule anything out for the Celtics. Both have been sitting on the bench with their teammates in Boston. The four-time MVP could opt to leave OH for a second time or he could opt to re-sign with the Cavs for another season and then put pen to paper to another long-term deal or leave in the summer of 2019. Only Michael Jordan (109) has more. Hill went on to make his first three shots.

Like most fans, Lue has been stunned - but not necessarily disappointed - by the number of lopsided wins in the playoffs, especially in the semifinals. "Thought we came out, the way I played, the way I performed, how not aggressive I was in the first half, I look at that as fuel to come out in Game 4 and be excited about it and be ready to play and ready to fight".

"This is a learning process for me", Clarkson said.

The Celtics looked overwhelmed and over matched, and if they are anything close to that in game four, it will be over really quick.

Home court closeness should practically be non-existent.
