CLEVELAND-- The Cleveland Cavaliers ended their playoffs win streak at 13 games with their loss to Boston Sunday night.

The Celtics won 111-108 with a three pointer in the final seconds in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Cleveland led 35-24 at the end of the first. Kevin Love went five for seven on three pointers in the first quarter, while Kyrie Iving put up three 3s himself.

The 3s continue to fall for the Cavaliers in the second quarter. Cleveland led at the half, 66-50. Love's seven three pointers at the break set an NBA record.

The Celtics went on a 8-2 run in the third, then hit a few threes to bring them within 5 of the Cavaliers.

With less than 7 minutes left in the game, the Celtics trailed by just one. Kelly Olynyk gave Boston the lead late in the fourth.

LeBron James was surprisingly quiet the whole game. He put up just 11 points and didn't score in the fourth quarter.

Game 4 is Tuesday night at the Q and Game 5 is in Boston on Thursday. If necessary, Game 6 would be Saturday in Cleveland.

The Cavs dominated the Celtics Friday night, 130-86. They led by a record 41 points at the half. James scored 30 while Irving had 23 and Love had 21.
