LeBron shines in fourth quarter as Cavs win Game 3

LeBron James recorded his second postseason triple-double as the Cavaliers beat the Pistons 86-77 in Game 3 Saturday night. LeBron had 15 of his 21 points in the pivotal fourth quarter where the Cavs outscored Detroit by 12. With the game in striking distance, LeBron and Damon Jones put it out of reach with two huge three-pointers late in the fourth. Behind a raucous crowd, the Cavs played solid defense in the final quarter to inch closer in the series.

LeBron came up big and took control down the stretch but the performances of Varejao and Marshall cannot be overlooked in the game. Varejao finished with 16 points on 6 of 7 from the field and Marshall had several key rebounds as well as a couple of key blocked shots in the fourth quarter. The Cavaliers finally showed some signs of life and as long as they bring the same energy and hustle in Game 4, this series could actually turn out to be very competitive.

Detroitís cocky, loud-mouthed forward may have possibly provided the Cavaliers with some bulletin board material after the game.

Rasheed Wallace warned the Cavaliers not to feel too giddy.
“They did what they were supposed to do,” he said. “We are still going to win this series. We’re not going to let one game discourage us.”
