That said, the Celtics, Raptors, and now the Hawks are teams to watch against the Cavaliers, but again, a seven-game playoff series is another story for those teams, including the Celtics. Both teams have two games remaining. The last time these teams played, on March 3 in Atlanta, the Cavs set an National Basketball Association record by making 25 3-pointers (on 46 attempts).
Instead, Cleveland allowed the Hawks to get back into the game despite leading 93-67 at the start of the fourth quarter, and the Hawks got the benefit of a few very questionable calls that helped them earn a 126-125 overtime victory. But Atlanta scored the first nine points of that quarter and found itself down by just four points when Mike Muscala drilled a three-pointer from the corner with just under a minute to play. Millsap made all three free-throws to cut the Cavalier lead to two points. James was then whistled for a foul on a three-point attempt by Paul Millsap with 8.3 showing on the clock.
"Give them all the credit", Millsap said. For Stevens, he saw his team in play in the second half with the kind of fight and grit that we haven't seen much of lately.
James made a couple of mistakes in the closing seconds of regulation.
Millsap finished with 22 points and Hardaway scored 21. Irving dropped 45 points on 16-for-39 shooting. The Cavs still led 87-85 with 9:02 left in the fourth quarter. "This is our team and if we continue to do that, we will be able to score".
Even though it isn't a good look for the Cavaliers to end the regular season in a slump, they can still get back on track with games left against the Miami Heat on April 10 and on April 12 against the Toronto Raptors, so regaining the No. 1 overall spot in the Eastern Conference with the tiebreaker over the Celtics isn't necessarily a given. But, you know, it could come back to bite them, too. If his knee is at all bothering him, it's worth keeping an eye on. The Celtics need to regain their focus and take care of their own business over these last three games, because if they don't, they could once again find themselves relying on tiebreakers to determine their seeding. On the season, Atlanta averages 102.9 points per game on offense while giving up 104.2 on defense.
While he wants to get Irving and James some rest once the seeding is determined, Lue plans to use the remainder of the regular season as a tune-up for JR Smith, Kevin Love and Kyle Korver - all of whom missed significant chunks of time in the second half of the season because of injury. Tipoff from Philips Arena in Atlanta will be at 3:30 p.m. ET.
The Cavs are on a dismal run, splitting their last 10 games with five wins and five losses - not what you'd expect from the champions heading into the post-season. That win seemed to signal a change, an acknowledgment that the postseason was quickly approaching and it was time to get serious.
The Hawks stretched the lead to 20 points in the third quarter when Howard drove past Horford on consecutive trips down the floor to make it 83-63.
The last time a team leading by more than 26 points ended up losing the game was the Los Angeles Lakers, losing to the Dallas Mavericks in December 2002, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
