Five Keys: Cavaliers vs. Celtics – Game 3
Key: Home Sweet Home
After the Celtics held serve through the first two games of the 2018 ECF up in Boston, the Cavaliers find themselves in the position of having to win four of their next five games to defend the Conference crown.
That defense of the home floor begins on Saturday night, when the Wine & Gold try to bounce back from a pair of discouraging losses in Beantown – including Tuesday night’s loss that put them in their current two-game bind.
In that defeat, Cleveland took a seven-point edge into the halftime locker room before being outscored, 59-39, after intermission. All five Celtics scored in double-figures and Boston’s starting guards completely dominated Cleveland’s as the third-quarter funk reared its ugly head at the worst possible moment.
