LeBron James is in an 0-2 hole for the seventh time in his career. In the previous six Game 3s, his teams went 4-2 SU and ATS. LeBron has come back to win a series twice after losing the first two games: the 2016 NBA Finals against the Warriors and 2007 Eastern Conference finals against the Pistons.

Teams down 0-2 have been profitable in the first half of Game 3, going 78-43-2 (64%) ATS since 2005. Big first-half favorites of three or more points (the Cavs are currently -5.5) have gone 17-7 (71%) ATS.
