I dreamt about this game last night. So here is the breakdown.
Lebron goes for 6 points in the first half while being very passive. Cavs down a couple at halftime.
Lebron goes for 41 in the second half giving the Cavs a 94-92 lead with 1:42 left to play.
C's tie it up on a Rondo drive.
Mo knocks down a big 3 on the next posession making it 97-94 Cavs.
We get a stop then Lebron gets fouled on the next possession and splits the pair making it 98-94 with about 30 seconds remaining.
There is no more scoring from either team.
Cavs win by 4.

One of two things happen:

The Cavs come out content with the win last game and lay an egg.

The Cavs come out wanting seconds and win, either close or in a blowout (all that matters is the final result)

If LeBron comes out and fires up jumpers again but is off...well, we may be in trouble pretty quickly.

Hopefully he plays SMART while playing aggressive. Don't just chuck up jumpers for the sake of it. Play good team basketball. Keep the round ball moving. Play hard, aggressive defense.

If we can jump out early or withstand an early run from Boston I really like our chances.

I agree, he was firing a lot of jumpers at the start in Game 3 but they were falling..

The Cavs NEED to be greedy. They MUST NOT be satisfied with simply taking one on the road. They need to execute like they did last game and LeBron needs to be as aggressive as he was all game on Friday. Boston is going to come out firing on all cylinders. They need this game. I expect this to be the toughest game the Cavs have faced yet in the postseason.

From Windy:

• The Celtics' game plan is expected to have two important facets offensively. One is to attempt to run as much as possible and not allow Anthony Parker to get in Rondo's way as much. This, of course, requires defensive stops and Boston didn't get so many of those in Game 3. The other is to get Garnett more touches. After after averaging 20.5 shots in the first two games, Garnett got just 11 in Game 3.

:chuckles:

Riight.
