HEAT 90 – 104 NETS
After 18 points by LeBron in the 1st quarter and what looked like another 61-point performance looming, the Heat found themselves trailing the Nets heading into the 4th quarter by a deficit that would be unreachable as time ticked away. The Nets would take Game 3 in a 104 – 90 win and hand the Heat their first playoff loss, despite LeBron’s 28 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists, not to mention a block and a steal.
“Third quarter was the deciding factor for us. We scored 14 points and allowed them to get whatever they wanted.” – James
Game 4 will tip off on Monday, May 12th at 8:00pm.
