2015 NBA Finals: Cleveland Cavs Take 2-1 Series Lead
I touch base with Cleveland Cavaliers’ superfan @RaysFanGio as we discussed the Cavs’ exciting Game 3 win over the Golden State Warriors. Cleveland’s LeBron James put together another legendary performance by pouring in 40 points, grabbing 12 rebounds, dishing out eight assists, and collecting four steals.
By averaging an incredible 41 points over the last three NBA Finals games, James has now scored more points than anyone in NBA Finals history over that span. Gio and I debate whether or not LeBron’s amazing three game string ranks as the greatest of all time.
Cleveland fan favorite Matthew Dellavedova had a huge impact in Game 3 as well. The scrappy Australian tallied a playoff career high 20 points and also posted five rebounds, four assists, and countless hustle plays that excited the home crowd at Quicken Loans Arena. We break down the overnight sensation of “Delly” and what he brings to the table that allows him to be so successful.
The Cavaliers enjoyed a 17 point lead after three quarters and even held a 20 point advantage in the third period. However, Cleveland’s euphoria quickly turned into panic as the Warriors eventually trimmed the lead to one point late in the game. Warriors’ expert marksman Steph Curry erupted for 17 fourth quarter points and left the Cavs rattled.
How was Golden State able to make such a furious comeback? Will the Cavs protect their home court advantage in Game 4? And can LeBron keep up his torrid pace in this year’s NBA Finals? You won’t want to miss this NBA Finals breakdown of EPIC proportions!
