WATCH: Celtics' Avery Bradley wins Game 3 with last-second 3-pointer vs. Cavs


Coming off a 44-point loss in Game 2, the Boston Celtics, minus Isaiah Thomas, go into Cleveland and win Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals 111-108, thanks to a last-second 3-pointer by Avery Bradley.

After Kyrie Irving tied things up with an impressive layup, the Celtics had possession with just about 10 seconds remaining. 

Boston ran a perfect play, as Avery Bradley came wide open off an Al Horford screen, and his 3-point effort rattled around every inch of the rim before dropping in to give the Celtics the come-from-behind victory.


The Celtics overcome a 21-point deficit and do it without their ailing star. The series, now a lot tighter as the Cavs only lead 2-1 and not 3-0, is guaranteed to go back to Boston for a Game 5.
