The Cleveland Cavaliers enjoyed yet another big performance from beyond the arc in Friday's 121-108 win over the Atlanta Hawks in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinals matchup, becoming the first team to make 20 or more three-point shots in consecutive playoff games, per Sportsnet Stats.
After setting an NBA single-game record (regular season or playoffs) with 25 three-pointers made in Wednesday's 123-98 Game 2 victory, the Cavaliers sunk 21 of their 39 trey attempts (53.8 percent) during Friday's comeback win, taking a commanding 3-0 series lead in the process.
Cleveland also turned in a nice performance from distance in a 104-93 Game 1 win, making 15 of 31 attempts (48.4 percent) in the only contest that's gone down to the wire so far.
Although Atlanta entered the fourth quarter with a 91-85 lead Friday night, the Cavs led by at least five points for the last five minutes of the contest, ultimately outscoring the Hawks 36-17 in the final frame.
Cavaliers forward Kevin Love hit the dagger with one minute, 36 seconds remaining, as his fifth and final three-pointer of the game gave Cleveland a 116-106 lead.
However, reserve forward Channing Frey was the biggest contributor from long range, making seven of his nine three-point attempts after sinking just two out of six through the first two games of the series.
As a team, the Cavaliers have made 61 of their 115 three-point tries in the series, good for a ridiculous 53 percent conversion rate.
