Chalk another one for Al Horford's stat sheet, as Mike Scott tossed one up to Horford, who finishes with the alley-oop with ease.

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.

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.

Horford demolishes Love on poster dunk

Kevin Love probably won't try to take a charge the next time Al Horford is coming down the lane.

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.

Cavs trail 63-55 after a sloppy first half. Love 13p on 4-of-11 8r 2a; LeBron 10p 5r 3a; Frye 9p 4r. After controlling turnovers all postseason, the Cavs have 11 turnovers in the first half leading to 15p for the Hawks.

Korver's three gives Hawks the lead

Kyle Korver didn't get the start in Game 3, but he is 4-of-6 from beyond the arc as the Hawks are out in front at halftime.
