Watch: Boston Celtics Stun Cleveland Cavaliers On Last-Second Avery Bradley 3-Pointer

Avery Bradley attempts a three-pointer.

So, the Cleveland Cavaliers' road to the NBA Finals won't be as easy as previously thought.

Down by 20 early in the third quarter and without their star Isaiah Thomas, the Boston Celtics stormed all the way back to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Guard Avery Bradley's game-winning three-pointer was the difference, as it rolled in to give Boston a 111-108 victory.

Here's the finish below. Al Horford probably got away with an illegal screen, but no way was that getting called in that situation.

Celtics guard Marcus Smart, a 28 percent shooter from three-point range during the regular season, went off tonight, scoring 27 points and making 7-of-10 from beyond the arc. Bradley chipped in 20.

For the Cavs, it was a very quiet night for LeBron James, who produced just 11 points, six rebounds and six assists. Point guard Kyrie Irving scored 29 points, including the game-tying lay-up with 10 seconds left, but it wasn't enough.

Smart money says LeBron goes off in Game 4 and then the Cavs close it out in Game 5, but kudos to Boston for this win.
