James scores 31, Cavs beat Celts 103-95 for 3-0 series lead

BOSTON (AP) LeBron James got to the arena early. When he left the Cleveland Cavaliers had a chance to put an early end to the series.

James scored 31 points in his first playoff game in Boston since a masterful performance in the 2012 postseason. And Cleveland moved one win away from a sweep in its first playoff series in five years with a 103-95 victory Thursday night.

James arrived an hour early at the morning shootaround, accompanied by teammate J.R. Smith. It was a sign of his leadership, according to coach David Blatt.
