LeBron James scored 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 13 rebounds, eight assists and two steals in the Cavs’ Game 3 win over the Hawks on Friday.
The Cavs laid back until the second half and then turned the afterburners on as the Hawks devolved under the weight of Cleveland’s attack. Kevin Love — when he wasn’t getting put on to the Twitter highlight reel for the wrong reasons — was very good with 21 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one block and five threes. Kyrie Irving scored 24 points with three steals, three assists and four threes and was good when it counted. The Cavs hit 21 threes and hopefully for their sake they haven’t used up too many bullets too early in the playoffs.
