Kyrie Irving made a fastbreak layup and immediately went down holding his ankle. However, after being checked out on the baseline, he got up to a standing ovation and stayed in the game.

Jae Crowder checks out and heads to the locker room after going down awkwardly. Crowder was trying to walk off the injury but Brad Stevens sent in Jaylen Brown.

Encapsulating his struggles in one play, LeBron James caught a perfect outlet pass from Kevin Love, went up for a huge one-handed slam -- and missed the dunk that would've given the Cavs the lead.

Celtics had three turnovers in the first half. They committed four in the first 3:17 of the third quarter.
