Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks Game 5: Watch NBA Playoffs 2015 Online, Free TV Radio streaming, How to watch Game 5

The Cleveland Cavaliers host the Atlanta Hawks in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday at 8:30 PM ET at the Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron James keeps on showing his experience and dominance in the playoffs as he leads the Cavs in a 2-0 victory over Atlanta before shifting the series into their homecourt. Without Kyrie Irving in Game 2, James carried the Cavs to yet another win. James is averaging 30.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.5 assists in the series against the Hawks.

James is working in all aspects of the game to help his teammates in being at the right place and at the right time. His leadership is clearly being manifested throughout the series that his teammates are getting into it.

Meanwhile, Irving’s status for Game 3 is questionable. Irving has been a key component in the attacks of the Cavaliers throughout the season. Other Cavs players are stepping up big without Irving and Kevin Love.

”If he’s able to play, then he’ll play,” coach David Blatt said. ”He’s a big part of the team, and this series is not finished. But if he’s not able to play, he won’t. That’s the determining factor.”

On the postseason, James averages 27.2 points, 9.9 rebounds, 8.0 assists and 1.7 steals. The emergence of Tristan Thompson has extremely supplied the necessary points and rebounds for the Cavs. Thompson averages 8.8 points and 10.0 rebounds per game in the playoffs. J.R. Smith averages 12.7 points while Iman Shumpert contributes 10.3 points per game.

For the Atlanta Hawks, there’s a mountain to climb after losing their grip on the homecourt advantage since Game One. The No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference must be able to find the solution on stopping the Cavaliers before it’s too late.

Adding into the grim circumstances, the Hawks lost Kyle Korver, their best three-pointer, in the playoffs.

”He’s a huge part of our leadership, our fabric, our fiber,” coach Mike Budenholzer said about Korver, injured while scrambling for a loose ball in Game 2.

While the absence of Korver aggrandizes the situation of the Hawks, they must contain LeBron James.

”There’s no doubt we have to do a better job defending him, both individually and as a team,” Budenholzer said. ”We’ve got to do a better job taking away the passing lanes, a better job arriving on the pass and a better job contesting shots. That’s really not any different than what it was coming into the series. But as you see it, experience it, feel it, hopefully we’ll get better as the series goes on.”

On the postseason, Jeff Teague tops the Hawks in points and assists with 15.9 and 7.1 respectively. Al Horford averages 9.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists to lead in both categories for the Hawks. Meanwhile, after incurring an injury in Game One, DeMarre Carroll now averages 15.4 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.
