Lebron James and the Cavaliers withstood a fourth quarter push by the Hawks and took a commanding 3 game lead in this series with a 114-111 win in overtime. James recorded a triple double with 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists to lead all scorers in this game. Without Kyrie Irving there to help, other Cavs players had to step up and they did with four other players finishing the game in double digits scoring. J.R. Smith had another solid game with 17 points, 10 rebounds, an assist and two blocks.
The big story in this game was the questionable ejection of Al Horford in the first half after getting in a dust up on the floor with Matthew Dellavadova. The loss of Horford hurt the Hawks as they were already without Kyle Korver for the rest of the season. Even with the ejection, Jeff Teague led his team and even got the lead in the third quarter before James took over the game with 15 points, six rebounds and six assists in the quarter to put the Cavs up 10. Teague finished the game with 30 points, six assists and seven rebounds.
Atlanta is one loss away from having their season end so the pressure is on and they'll need to play their best game of the season when they face Cleveland on Tuesday.
In head to head matchups, the over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Cleveland and 12-5 in the last 17 meetings. The Hawks are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Cleveland and the underdog is 4-0 against the spread in the last 4 meetings.
