Cleveland has won seven straight against the Pistons in the postseason. The Pistons are down 3-0 vs. the Cavs. No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game series (85 occurrences). After two comfortable wins at home, Cleveland struggled to score points at the Palace. But they won. Actually, “struggled” is putting it lightly. For a good part of Game 3, the Cavs looked downright awful offensively. LeBron James huffed and puffed about being pushed and shoved by the Detroit Pistons. Then, he stopped lobbying for help from the officials and blew the Pistons down and almost out of the playoffs. James had 11 rebounds and nine assists. He said he learned he was just short of a triple-double after looking at the stat sheet. “When I got to the locker room, I blamed Mo Williams,” James joked. LeBron James recorded his third career 25 point, 10 rebound, 8 assist game in the playoffs, tying him with Shaquille O’Neal and Baron Davis for the most such games by an active player. King James wore the initial Zoom Soldier III colorway. With POP’s being the Home Edition, the Black/White/Red GR is a good match with Cavs’s road uniforms. Plenty of amazing photos from the game after the jump.
