Cavaliers vs. Celtics Game 3, NBA Playoffs 2015: Time, TV schedule, radio and more

Cleveland looks to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their opening round series versus Boston. Here's how you watch.

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and the rest of the Cavaliers head to Boston tonight to take on the Celtics in game three of their first round showdown. Despite being overmatched, Brad Stevens has his team playing Cleveland pretty tough thus far. Game one turned into a blowout, but in game two, Boston kept fighting back, cutting the lead to just four points with 3:30 to play. It'll be interesting to see how both teams respond to a new environment in the series' third game.

This is the fifth time LeBron has faced off against the Celtics in the postseason. In 2008 and 2010 his Cleveland teams fell to the Paul Pierce-KG-Ray Allen triumvirate, but in 2011 and 2012 (with Miami) James got over that hump. He's just 3-9 all time as a playoff visitor to the TD Garden... but this Cavs team, and this Celtics team, are sliiiiightly different than they've been in the past.

Either way, the crowd should be amped. It'll be a great environment and a great game to catch on tv as well. Here's where and when you can find it tonight:

Time: 7:00 EST
