Following a resounding 116-86 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love said that the key to the team getting back into the series has been Tristan Thompson’s defense on Boston Celtics All-Star Al Horford.
Tristan has always been great in stepping up and taking the challenge in any series, Love said. You’ve got to give a lot of credit to Tristan because Horford is really the one that makes them go. He can play a little bit of the point forward. He can do a lot of the intangibles that even for their team might not show up on the box score as well. But he did a great job on him tonight, and he’s done a great job on him the last two games.

He’s 37 now? God dang, Lue said. We’re playing him too many minutes. We need him, though. We need him.
Like a dad getting carded at the bar while visiting his child at college during parent’s weekend, Korver didn’t mind one bit that Lue got his age wrong.
I wish I was 36, Korver said. I loved being 36.

It’s that kind of series, said Tucker, who grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds in a team-high 44 minutes. I came out for 30 seconds and I went right back in. Coach told me, ‘They’re going with their guns, so we gotta match guns with guns.’
