In an interview from CBSSports.com LeBron James said "I think tonight as a group, even when things broke down, we just covered for one another. We made them make extra passes. We made them make extra dribbles. We were flying around, and I just happened to be one of the guys on the floor that wanted to fly around as well."
All five Cavaliers starters were in double figures, Kyle Korver who came off the bench contributed 14 points. It was a well balanced attack from the team LeBron James had a game high off 27 points and 12 assist. J.R. Smith didn't leave a goose egg on the stat sheet this time and scored 11 points and 5 rebounds. Can we expect the same type of performance from the Cavs in Game 4 we will have to see.
