Cavs Fall 118-113 in Final Minute of Game 3; Three Takeaways

The Cavaliers seemed to have everything going for them throughout Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

LeBron James put on another MVP caliber performance. Kyrie Irving found his footing on offense for the first time this series. Kevin Love was masterful on the defensive end.

They seemed as though they finally found some solutions on defense to keep Golden State’s Kevin Durant and Steph Curry at bay.

For the first time in the Finals, the Cavs actually led in the second half.

In the final three minutes, however, Cleveland watched a nightmare scenario unfold.

Their six-point lead would become a one-point deficit, and after a series of miscalculations, the Cavs dropped their third straight game to the Warriors, 118-113.

Here are three takeaways, for the 0-3 Finals deficit the Cavs must now try to overcome.
