Avery Bradley beats Cavaliers on beautiful Brad Stevens after-timeout play

This was so good.

Brad Stevens is the king of plays after a timeout and he proved it again in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. He used one of his classic after time-out plays to get Avery Bradley a wide open shot with 0.1 left on the clock to beat the Cavaliers 111-108.

To get the play going, Avery Bradley goes down to set a screen for Jae Crowder, who curls to the basket.

After the pick, Bradley pops out to the three-point line. J.R. Smith got completely turned around and Smith actually followed Crowder to the basket with Iman Shumpert, leaving Bradley wide open.

It’s actually a play the Celtics run often when they need a basket, but the Cavaliers weren’t ready for it, especially Smith.
