The Cavaliers and Bulls are not teams that are used to shootouts – especially in the postseason. But that’s what Thursday’s Game 3 turned out to be. Unfortunately for Cleveland, the Bulls had just a little more ammo. The Wine and Gold trailed by as many as 21 midway through the third quarter but clawed their way back – cutting Chicago’s lead to 11 after three and down to a single point with 3.8 to play. But after Luol Deng split a pair of free throws, Anthony Parker‘s halfcourt shot drew front iron – giving the Bulls the 108-106 win and cutting Cleveland’s series lead to 2-1. LeBron was simply sensational down the stretch – going 6-for-7 in the final quarter, 14-for-26 overall. James barely missed a triple-double, finishing with 39 points, 10 boards, 8 assists, 3 blocks and a pair of steals. The Cavaliers have never lost a playoff series after winning the first two games, going 6-0 all-time.
