CLEVELAND -- Barely 13 hours after their first loss in the 2017 NBA Playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers are back on the practice floor at Cleveland Clinic Courts in Independence.

GAME 3 RECAP

At first, the three-point shot was the Cavaliers’ greatest asset, but when needed most, they could not summon any makes from long distance, and it cost them dearly in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

A last-second three-pointer from guard Avery Bradley gave the Boston Celtics a 111-108 win over the Cavaliers in Game 3 at Quicken Loans Arena Sunday night.

After making 14 of their first 22 looks from long distance, the Cavaliers made just two of their 11 looks from three-point range in the fourth quarter, both from shooting guard J.R. Smith over the last five-plus minutes of play, and two of just 17 following the halftime break. Conversely, the Celtics buried five of their 11 three-point tries in the fourth quarter.
