CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers didn't shoot a single free throw in the first half of Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert made sure to let his 440,000-plus followers on Twitter know, before thinking better of it, in a since-deleted tweet.

Although Gilbert didn't provide any context to his post, his message was clear. After two games in which the Cavs found themselves on the wrong end of multiple questionable calls by the officials, Gilbert seemed to once again feel his team wasn't being officiated fairly.

For what it's worth, it didn't take long for Cleveland to attempt its first free throws of the night after Gilbert's post, as LeBron James drew a shooting foul on an and-1 layup 22 seconds into the second half. And although Gilbert ultimately opted to take down his post, he didn't do so before multiple followers were able to snag screenshots.

After leading the Warriors 58-52 at halftime, the Cavs now trail Golden State 69-64 with 7:44 remaining in the third quarter. With a victory, the Warriors would take a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, putting them one win away from their second straight NBA Finals victory over the Cavs.
