Celtics with an all-time gritty win in Game 3 vs. Cavs

James scored just 11 points as the Cavs blew a 21-point second half lead and lost their first playoff game of the post season 111-108 on Avery Bradley's 3-pointer that rattled in with 0.1 left on the clock.

Boston Celtics' Jaylen Brown (7) defends against Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James (23) during the first half of Game 3 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals, Sunday, May 21, 2017, in Cleveland.

James notched his eighth straight playoff game of at least 30 points, and did it in a 2017 playoff-low 33 minutes.

The Boston Celtics, without having its superstar guard on the court, secured an unlikely road win against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

The Celtics trail the Cleveland Cavaliers 2-0 in the series with game three set for Sunday night in Cleveland.

"The Cavs just suddenly decided, 'Well, we can just go home.' And they pretty much did, mentally".

"We have guys who have chips on their shoulders", Stevens said. They ended the game with 10 steals and 9 turnovers compared to the Cavaliers 5 steals and 15 turnovers. Celtics coach Brad Stevens wasn't about to take any credit for "stopping" James. Avery Bradley, whose three-pointer from 26 feet with a tenth of a second remaining was the winning basket, said the Cavs should expect to see from the Celtics more of that same desperate basketball James mentioned. "So when it bounced around, I was actually hoping it went in, obviously, but not completely disappointed that it was bouncing up there". We just have to go out there and play. We just kept fighting. But I'm glad it kind of hurt, that it happened the way it did - let our foot off the gas a little bit, didn't keep the pressure on them like we have been accustomed to.

Coutinho explains why he'd snub Barcelona for Liverpool stay
It's a fantastic competition and I think in last 10 years Liverpool was not part of it too often, three years ago once only maybe. Money-wise? We have enough money. "I'm really proud of the boys, they did well", Klopp said.

Stephen Curry added 21 points and became the franchise leader in postseason points, passing Hall of Famer Rick Barry. "Al Horford made a great screen and Marcus Smart made an even better pass, and I was able to knock down a shot".

Irving led the Cavaliers with 29 points and seven assists, while Kevin Love added 28 points and 10 rebounds.

He initially suffered the injury in the Game 6 loss to the Wizards in team's the second-round series on May 12 and seemingly aggravated it Saturday.

Still, the Cavs were in control leading 77-56 in the third quarter after making 14 3-pointers in the first half.

"He's got to be aggressive, get downhill, play like he's been playing, play confident", said Smith after practice Monday.

"I would rather have adversity and win", Lue said with a laugh. These guys and the coaching staff did a really good job of just encouraging me, especially when my shot hasn't been falling. That's all I've got to say about my performance."James' rough night continued after the final buzzer".
