The Cleveland Cavaliers are holding a 3-0 lead in this Eastern Conference finals series and can secure its place in the finals for the first time since 2007 with another win Tuesday night. They picked up two big wins at Atlanta (97-89, 94-82), but struggled in Game 3 home in Cleveland as Atlanta managed to force overtime where Cleveland eventually prevailed 114-111. The Hawks won the season series 3-1, and perhaps it’s too early to write off the Hawks just yet?
