#Cavs and Celtics grades from Game 3. Apologies to Timofey Mozgov and Brandon Bass cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Mike Prada

Mozgov’s been too slow on pick and roll coverages all quarter. Not surprised Thompson is in.

Jared Weiss

Timofey Mozgov getting all bent out of shape. #Cavs #Celtics http://t.co/OMcjHzQfwd

Jared Weiss

Marcus Smart, meet Timofey Mozgov. #Celtics #Cavs http://t.co/JjI5Jw6z0P

Jason Lloyd

J.R. Smith given a technical during scrum even though Mozgov shoved Crowder.

Gary Washburn

We've got pushing with Crowder, LeBron and Mozgov. Officials reviewing to see if there any techs to be handed out. #celtics #cavaliers

Dave McMenamin

Jerebko drops Kyrie on the break and Mozgov comes right to Irving's defense, shoves Crowder out of the way.

Joe Vardon

Mozgov just told Love to use his elbows

Joe Vardon

I mean the #Cavs can get that all night. Love, Mozgov should be ready

Andrew Perna

That Mozgov drive to the left on Zeller was in slow motion.

Jessica Camerato

Mozgov dunks on Zeller. Doesn't get bigger than him on the Celtics.

Jay King

Is Mozgov intimidating? Crowder laughs. "No. Nobody on their team is intimidating."

Joe Gabriele

For #Cavs, @Kyrie Irving, 26pts, 8-18 FG, 6asst, 5reb; Mozgov, 16pts, 7reb, game-high 5blk; @Kevin Love, 13pts, 6reb, 2asst, 2blk.

Kendrick Perkins especially enjoyed Kevin Love reverse jam off LeBron lob. LeBron just 3-of-11 shooting, but Mozgov 7-of-11. #cavs #celtics

Bob Finnan

Who's taken the most shots on #Cavs? LeBron? Kyrie? Nope. Mozgov with 10

Lang Whitaker

Cavs lead 51-50 at half. Classic Mozgov/Zeller duel.

Chris Fedor

Mozgov has four blocks & Isaiah Thomas keeps driving and stopping for pull-up jumpers. Moz should control paint w/ C's lack of size.

Chris Haynes

On last three by Jared Sullinger, David Blatt went Assault and Blattery on Timofey Mozgov. JR Smith went to Blatt and said it was his fault.

Rick Noland

mozgov 8 pts, 0 reb; zeller 9 pts, 4 reb

Al Iannazzone

Mozgov and Zeller are the leading scorers so far, just as you would expect.

Royce Young

Glad everyone tuned into the Mozgov v. TZeller battle we all expected.

Jay King

It's the Mozgov-Zeller duel we've all been waiting for.

Chris Haynes

Timofey Mozgov caught a nice bounce pass in traffic to finish with the flush. Good to see him with some sure hands.

Jay King

Amazing how aggressive Zeller has been. Every time, he just tries to attack Mozgov and get easy buckets.

Rick Noland

cavs didn't get great games from Mozgov, J.R. and still won by 13. doesn't bode well for Celtics
