The purple and gold fans breathed a big sigh of relief as LeBron James and Co. took the lead in a very important series. Any simple mistake could cost them a shot at a second straight title. However, there is still a long road ahead and before that, they have to seal their victory against the Suns.

In the third game, LeBron, Anthony Davis, and Dennis Schroder put up an incredible performance. Since Bron’s injury, he hasn’t played at the highest level, which is what initially cost them the first game. However, Game 3 was a testament to the fact that he has finally found his rhythm. He added 21 points, along with AD’s 34 and Schroder’s 20.

The Suns are hoping that enough rest will help heal Paul’s injury, which is why he did not attend practice on Saturday. Without him, the dynamic of this series has taken a huge turn.
