It took a bit, but the Cavaliers are finally rounding into form and clicking on all cylinders. They've been taking it to the rim and scoring most of their points in the paint so far in the first period.

Boston better make sure they win Game 5 at home or they maybe the first team to blow a 3-0 in NBA history.

Exactly, and the Bulls had large point differential in there regular season and playoffs during their 6 championship years, whereas the Cavs this season only averaged 1 more point than their opponents, and had an extremely close series with Indiana.

In a sense Boston are less likely to lose from 3-0 than anyone in the NBA because their coach doesn't make tactical mistakes.
And Philly are now known for being unclutch, so you'd think they'd have to thrash Boston and avoid tight finishes.

Yep that particular game will certainly be difficult for Boston, and Philly have now figured out that attacking the paint is key for the whole team (instead of just Embiid doing it), so I can see them taking care of business at home if they get that chance.

The Cavs up by 28 points end of third.

DeRozan ejected for his foul on Clarkson.

Time to blow it up Toronto. Derozan/Lowry is a failure...get younger stars and try again.

This isn't that surprising. Toronto just cannot get it done.
