If Cleveland can wrap up the sweep, they will have 9 days off before the NBA Finals and they'll need every one of them.

LeBron hobbled, still victorious

After the Cavs' Game 3 win, LeBron told TNT: "You could play doctor right now, how many injuries I got right now. But at that point, I felt like it was mind over matter. ... I was able to push through. But all credit to my teammates right now."

LeBron extends lead

LeBron James has done it all for Cleveland tonight. 37 points, 18 rebounds, 13 assists, and his latest basket put the Cavs up by 3 with 12.8 seconds left in overtime.

LeBron James has the superstar numbers -- 35p 18r 13a -- but Tristan Thompson has been "the guy behind the guy."

LeBron answers Teague's big 3

After Jeff Teague hit a 3-pointer to put Atlanta ahead by 2, LeBron James answered with a corner 3-pointer of his own -- his first of the game -- to put the Cavs back up by 1 point with 36.4 seconds left.

Cavs clinging to lead, LeBron limping

Cleveland is up 109-106 with 2:35 left in overtime, but just called timeout to get LeBron James some extra rest. The Cavs' star has been noticeably limping for much of overtime, and sat down on the scorers table as soon as time was called.

Besides Tristan Thompson, Iman Shumpert also has five fouls, which could be an issue in overtime.

Yet another "Millsap doesn't look right" game. Look up at the box: 22 and 7, 5-10 FG & 11-11 FT. Good defensive work.

Stephen A Smith @stephenasmith
