Conversely, the Celtics buried five of their 11 three-point tries in the fourth quarter.
Lue said Boston head coach Brad Stevens' plays are what throws Cleveland off guard, which is what makes defending the Celtics more hard.
"We know what we did wrong in game three".

Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue refused to point the finger of blame at LeBron James yesterday, a day after a woeful performance from the National Basketball Association star gave the Boston Celtics a postseason lifeline. "If we play harder than they do we can get back in it".
James finished with just 11 points and did not score at all in the final 16 minutes of the game as Boston pushed back from a 21-point deficit. But, a man by the name of Smart played smart and fearless throughout the night and inspired his team to victory. While the numbers are gaudy, the way Kyrie dissected the Celtics' defense was the real treat. Irving weaved through the defense like there was nobody in front of him and pulled off a number of crafty layups that literally made your jaw drop.
"No blame. We're all to blame", Lue said of James' display. The Cavs are better off getting that bad game of their chest when they still are in such a good position.
The Sixers used whatever emotion they had left to upset the Lakers in Game 1, but then exhaustion and injury set in and Los Angeles won the next four games.

Police later announced they'd arrested a woman in connection with the investigation in Blackley, another Manchester neighborhood. Rudd earlier slammed the U.S. for leaking several details on the attack investigation as "irritating" and asked them to stop.
James, who was scoreless in the fourth quarter Sunday in Game 3, had 15 of his 34 points in the final period.
Just as he did in Game 3.
One of the main takeaways from this series has been the ability of Brad Stevens to stay competitive and even defeat the defending champs without his best player.
"We're not in a rush", said Ainge, who added that so far Thomas' meetings have been with team physician Brian McKeon and his medical group.
Conte's 'blazing inferno' ignites a new era for Chelsea
Chelsea have secured the Premier League title with a late victor over West Bromwich Albion . Sometimes we play well, but concede a goal and then it's hard to get back in the game.
Fultz will give the Boston Celtics another great piece to go along with the solid nucleus that they already have. "Somebody just asked me that".
"I thought we played as well as maybe we have the entire playoffs during the first half", Stevens said. He is the only player to be all-NBA and all-defensive team in his first 13 seasons. "So who do we go to get that?' And that's where he's been so big for them and so crucial this year". Smart shot 7-10 from three-point range, ballsy shots about which he was typically unabashed over taking but at which he was atypically effective at making. "I think it started defensively". "I think he's probably going to collect one to two more opinions and then go from there before he ultimately makes a decision on the next step, whether that next step is surgery or a specific rehab program, whatever the case may be". This statement from Lue is even more baffling when combined with the fact that the Celtics have been without Isaiah Thomas since the middle of Game 2.
