LeBron delivers huge shot as Cavs win critical Game 3

In a pivotal Game 3 in Washington, LeBron almost single-handedly guided the Cavaliers to victory in a down-to-the-wire 97-96 thriller. LB, who finished with 41, drove to the basket in the final seconds and muscled one in to give the Cavaliers the lead. With nearly five seconds remaining, Gilbert Arenas had a good look at a three but couldn’t knock it down. The Cavs fell behind in the first half but with the help of Larry Hughes and some good defense in the third quarter, they were able to climb back in the game. Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 15 points and 8 rebounds but fouled out in the fourth.

In his first career road playoff game, LeBron took it as just another game and was as impressive as ever.

“I said I wouldn’t have two bad games in a row,” said James, who had 10 turnovers and shot 7-for-25 in the Game 2 loss. “I watched Game 2 over and over, and I saw the adjustment they made on me from Game 1 to Game 2. Me being the player I am, I had to counterattack, and I was able to do that.”

With the win, we go up 2-1 in the series and regain home-court advantage. For us to win the series and possibly advance further in the playoffs, however, we need more production out of those players not named LeBron. Specifically, Marshall tonight contributed only four points in 29 minutes.
