Kevin Love had 21 points and 16 rebounds posting his second straight double-double.

James posted a workmanlike-line with 38 points, seven rebounds and six assists on 14-of-26 shooting. Even better, he finished 9 of 11 from the free-throw line.

They gave us everything they have and more, James told ESPN after the game. We could play so much better, but its a gutsy win.

The Celtics dropped the 76ers 101-98 in overtime Saturday while the Cavaliers handed the Raptors a 105-103 loss which gives both teams commanding 3-0 leads in their respective seminfinal matchups.

For Boston, it came with a huge helping hand from veteran center Al Horford who scored both the go-ahead basket in overtime along with two free throws to all but seal the deal.
