The Cleveland Cavaliers enter Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals with two goals in mind. First, the Cavaliers need to win Saturday's game to avoid a potential sweep on Monday night. Moreover, a win over the surging Boston Celtics will mean this series has the legitimate potential of going seven games. Currently, the Celtics lead (2-0) after a pair of double-digit victories. Therefore, the entire Cavaliers' organization is bracing for what may happen if they fall flat at home.

LeBron James may leave in free agency.

Currently, the biggest story is how well the Celtics have looked with a somewhat depleted roster.

However, the pending free agency of Lebron James is at the forefront of everybody's mind. Even if the Cavaliers aren't talking about it, there's history of James leaving an organization after being eliminated in dramatic fashion. James left the Cavaliers to join the Miami Heat in 2010. Four years later, James returned to the Cavaliers in 2014. He also helped deliver an NBA title in 2016. Therefore, James may believe he has done his job.

So far, James has continued to play well on the offensive side of the ball. He is averaging 28.5 points, 10.5 assists, and 8.5 rebounds in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals. However, James is only shooting 46.7 percent from the field against the Celtics after two games.

Moreover, James is shooting slightly better than 31 percent from 3-point range in the first two games. Unfortunately, he's second on the team in the series. Overall, the Cavaliers are shooting 24.6 percent from 3-point range against the tough Celtics' defense.

In fact, Kevin Love is the only teammate scoring in double figures after two games.

Love is producing 19.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game. Meanwhile, Kyle Korver and Tristan Thompson are scoring eight points per game apiece. If the Cavaliers expect to win Game 3, they will need the role players to step up. It's one reason why the Celtics will continue to focus their effort on limiting the 3-point shot.

The Celtics Face Road Woes.

It shouldn't have been a surprise when the Celtics won the first two home games in the Eastern Conference Finals. So far, they are (9-0) in home playoff games. They won all four home games in the seven-game win over the Milwaukee Bucks in the first-round. They knocked off the Philadelphia 76ers in five games. Three of those wins came at home. Now, they won the first two games to take a lead over the Cavaliers. However, it's what the Celtics do in Game 3 that will mark the series. Remember, the Celtics shocked the 76ers in Game 3 and Philly was never able to recover. Moreover, the Celtics don't want the Cavaliers to regain any momentum they captured against the Toronto Raptors.

If the Celtics have been perfect at home, what have they been doing on the road? Well, they are (1-4) in road playoff games. Obviously, they lost all three games against the Bucks. They also lost Game 4 against the 76ers. They will need a total team effort to steal a road victory on Saturday night.

Currently, the Celtics have six players averaging double figures in the Eastern Conference Finals. Jaylen Brown is scoring 23.5 points per game. Al Horford is producing 17.5 points per game. They are each grabbing seven rebounds per game in the series. Marcus Morris entered the starting lineup to help solidify the forward spot in the postseason. He is producing 16.5 points and a team-high 7.5 rebounds per game in the first two games.

Meanwhile, Jayson Tatum is scoring 13.5 points. Point guard Terry Rozier is pouring in 13 points per game. Marcus Smart is coming off the bench to lead the Celtics with 7.5 assists.

Game 3 is set to tip-off at 8:30 PM on ESPN. Quicken Loans Arena should be at capacity for the pivotal game of the series.
