Game 3 starts on Wednesday at 9PM ET, with the Cavaliers reuniting with their fans at Quicken Loans Arena. They hope to earn their first win of the 2016 NBA Finals, as they trail 2-0 at the hands of the Golden State Warriors. Cleveland might be without their star power forward Kevin Love, who received an accidental elbow from Harrison Barnes to the head this past Sunday. He initially stayed in the game, but left after experiencing dizziness. If he is not ready come game time, the Cavs will likely turn to their big russian Timofey Mozgov in the starting five. He has played a total of fourteen minutes during the first two games of the finals.
