The Cavs took game 3 and protected home court improving to 7-1 in Cleveland during this year’s playoffs. Just like in game three, the Cavs jumped on the Celtics early and led by 19 in the first half.

Boston fought back and cut it to 7 (89-96) with just under seven minutes remaining in the fourth but the home side made key plays down the stretch resulting in a 111-102 victory.

LeBron James scored 44 points to lead all scorers, breaking a historic record. With 2,357 made career playoff field goals he moved ahead of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most in postseason history.

Turkish rookie, Cedi Osman saw the floor for the last 12 seconds while Spanish international Jose Calderon and Croatian center Ante Zizic did not play.

Jaylen Brown scored 25 points to go with 6 boards, 2 assists for the Celtics. French rookie, Guerschon Yabusele did not play.

Game 5 will take place in Boston this Wednesday.
