LeBron James Helps Cavs Edge Hawks

James drives on in their match

The Cleveland Cavaliers were once again without Kyrie Irving, and just as he did in Game 2, LeBron James once again overcame a poor shooting night to carry the Cavs to victory over the Atlanta Hawks.
James, who moved past Karl Malone for sixth on the all-time playoff scoring list, finished with a ridiculous 37 points, 18 rebounds, 13 assists, and three steals as Cleveland took a 3-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals with a 114-111 overtime victory.
The Hawks failed to capitalize as James slogged through an 0-for-10 start from the field early in the game, then rallied from a fourth quarter deficit to force overtime, with Jeff Teague even getting an open look at a potential game-winning three as the buzzer sounded on regulation.
Already without the injured Kyle Korver, Atlanta was forced to finish the game without All-Star big man Al Horford, who was ejected for dropping an elbow on Cavs guard Matthew Dellavedova in the second quarter.
With the victory, the Cavs moved within a win of their first Finals berth in eight years, with James moving within a game of his fifth straight Finals appearance.
