The Pistons once again gave the Cavaliers all they could handle, but as they did in the first two games, failed to execute late.
Cleveland now holds a commanding 3-0 lead and will look to close the series out here on Sunday.
Detroit was in it throughout the entire game once again as they got a lot of production from a lot of players, something that hasn’t been there all series long.
Detroit had 4 players score in double figures, led by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who had 18.
The key here again was Andre Drummond. while he finished with 17 points, he had just 7 rebounds.
Cleveland completely took him out of the game, especially late, as they continued to foul him and put him on the line, where he struggled.
With their backs against the wall the Pistons have quite the mountain to climb. Look for them to really pull out all the stops here in Game 4 as they’re desperate to somehow get more production on both ends of the floor.
Cleveland led by just for with about a minute and a half to play and 0.7 on the shot clock. Love found Irving in the corner on an inbound and Irving hit a fade away three as the horn sounded to put the Cavaliers up by 7.
Lebron James, Irving, and Love all celebrated at half court with gigantic smiles on theirs faces as Cleveland fans saw all that regular season drama was gone.
Love, James, and Irving accounted for 66 of Cleveland’s 101 points as Lebron set the pace with 26. The Cavaliers have shown they have the ability to work it inside and with their outside shooters, they can hit from anywhere on the floor.
This team is extremely dangerous and so tough for the opposition to defend.
Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson has also been a nice player here in this series. Thompson has dominated the offensive glass, as he grabbed 8 in Game 3.
