LeBron James’ shot still is not falling — he was 14-of-37 shooting in Game 3. Atlanta defended him well, contesting 27 of his 37 shot attempts.
But LeBron still made the plays he needed to — driving dunks, steals, key threes, defensive plays — to carry the load for the Cavaliers and get them an overtime win and a 3-0 series lead against the Hawks. His exhaustion was evident as he fell to the ground after the game ended.
LeBron finished with 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists — his 12th playoff triple-double, moving him past Karl Malone on the all-time playoff list.
