This is not a mistake: Cavaliers have drilled 18-of-27 three-pointers and lead the Hawks 74-38 at halftime. J.R. Smith has made 6-of-10 treys alone. Meanwhile, Hawks are shooting a dreadful 2-of-11 from behind the arc. Game 3 cannot come fast enough for the Hawks, who desperately need to regroup in Atlanta.

Cavs shooting 48.7% overall and the three-point shooting is at 68.4% (13-19). And seriously, this is them cooling off a bit. Cleveland leads 56-32 with five minutes left in second.

J.R. Smith makes a difficult off-balanced three with 3.9 seconds left and then Paul Millsap banked in a heave from near halfcourt but it did not beat the buzzer. Cavs up 35-20 after first quarter.

The Hawks' defense is having all sorts of problems with the Cavaliers' penetration into paint. That's when Atlanta's defense breaks down, leaving one and sometimes two Cavs open behind the arc. Cleveland made 7-of-its-first-9 three-pointers to take a 30-16 lead.

LeBron James fired a sick one-handed, left-handed pass that was an absolute laser to a cutting Kyrie Irving like it was a slant pass thrown ahead of the receiver. The result was Irving finding Kevin Love for a corner three. Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson, who is in attendance at Game 2 here, may wanna try out LeBron at quarterback.

Atlanta avoiding guarding the corner like they're afraid of Marlo or something. Cavs up 27-16 early.

After taking just one shot and missing it in Game 1, Kyle Korver came out and launched two shots in first two minutes. Jeff Teague is also aggressive early, driving and looking to score.

Raptors G DeMar DeRozan is shooting 37-for-133 in contested shots during the playoffs (27.8 percent) and 16-for-27 on uncontested shots (59.3 percent). To be fair, DeRozan has had to carry more of the offensive load with Kyle Lowry struggling with his shot. Toronto may need to diversify its offense more, but that's probably easier said than done at this stage.
