Cavs win it 121-108 in dramatic fashion, coming back from down nine in the fourth quarter to go up 3-0 on the Hawks in the second round. They're now 7-0 in the playoffs.

I'm taking that Jeff Teague shove as the physical expression of, "Yeah, we've all had enough of this matchup now."

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

Frustration sets in for Hawks as Jeff Teague blatantly shoves LeBron James into the stands with 30 seconds left. Teague gets a flagrant-1 as Cleveland takes a 3-0 lead and moves within one win of sweeping the Hawks for second straight year.

The Cavs are 20-for-35 from 3 tonight. Channing Frye is 7-for-9 from deep off the bench for 27 points. This is some wild stuff.

Brian Windhorst ESPN Senior Writer 

Cavs have hit 60 3-pointers so far in this series. On 111 attempts. Both those numbers sort of stunning.

LeBron time: Cavs on a 10-2 run with James directing a switch onto Kyle Korver and calling for clear out before driving and dunking. Then James starts a play throwing ball into paint to Kevin Love, who passes to JR Smith, who draws two defenders and finds James open for a 3. Then James assists Channing Frye for a fast break dunk to push Cavs up 106-103 with 5:56 left. Entire Cavs bench runs to floor to celebrate with players on floor as timeout is called.

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

The Hawks need to pull this game out not only to survive but because they're getting the type of breaks they haven't seen all series. LeBron James just slipped and lost the ball as he was heading full steam toward the basket and stopped to make a move on a Hawk defender. Can't remember a time when I've seen LeBron fall down on his way full speed toward basket on a break. Hawks up 91-85 heading into fourth.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Cavs cut into the lead a little bit, but can't get over the hump, still trail ATL 91-85 after 3Q. Love 18p 9r 4f; LeBron 14p on 5-of-12 11r 5a; Frye 16p 5r; Tristan 7p 13r; Irving 12p.

Hawks caught fire, closing second quarter with a furious 23-7 run. Kyle Korver was running off screens hard and with only one thing in mind -- shooting a 3. He buried 4-of-6 in first half -- his two missed 3's coming on airballs but Hawks will take an aggressive Korver any day. Al Horford also has come to life with 15 points. Kevin Love has not scored since accounting for Cavs' first 13 points. And Love slipped and fell as Kris Humphries put a move on him and drove in for a layup during Hawks' run. Atlanta leads 63-55 at half.
