Boston Celtics Take Down LeBron James And The Cleveland Cavaliers In Game 3 And Shock The World

When everyone counted them out, the Boston Celtics roared back and refused to bow down to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Heading into game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals all the talk was saying the Celtics would get leveled by the Cavs, even more so after it was announced that All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas would be unable to go for Boston for the remainder of the post-season.

But with everyone dismissing their talents, the Celtics defeated the Cavaliers to the tune of 111-108 on the road in Cleveland behind a miracle last second 3-point shot by defensive minded guard Avery Bradley who netted the three ball with .1 left on the clock.

The Celtics were down by as much as 21-points in the second-half having to overcome a scoreboard that read 77-56 before they mounted one of the historic franchises epic playoff comebacks in its history.

Marcus Smart finished with 27 points on 7-of-10 3-point shooting. Game 4 will be Tuesday night in Cleveland before the series moves back to Boston for Game 5 Thursday.

“When it’s a big moment, you know that kid is going to rise to the occasion. He always has,” Brad Stevens said of Smart.

The win narrows Cleveland’s lead to 2-1 in the best-of-7 series and snaps Cleveland’s 13-game record-tying playoff win streak.

Quote of the Night: Kelly Olynyk on Jonas Jerebko’s big night: “He was just happy that Sweden won the world hockey championship. Thought he was on the squad.”

The Boston Celtics will be back for game 4 on Tuesday night in Cleveland.
