HAWKS-CAVALIERS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James shook off an atrocious shooting start and withstood Atlanta's gritty comeback to record a triple-double, and the Cleveland Cavaliers moved within one win of the NBA Finals by beating the Hawks 114-111 in overtime on Sunday night to take a 3-0 series lead.

James missed his first 10 shots, but finished with 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists. The Cavs needed every single one of them to hold off the top-seeded Hawks, who fought Cleveland until the final seconds despite being without injured shooter Kyle Korver and losing Al Horford, who was ejected in the first half.

James hit a 3-pointer with 36.4 seconds left to put the Cavs ahead by one, and the superstar dropped a runner with 12.8 left to make it 114-111.

Atlanta had two chances to tie it in the final seconds, but Shelvin Mack missed two 3-pointers.

HAWKS-HORFORD EJECTED

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Atlanta forward Al Horford has been ejected in the second quarter of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals for throwing an elbow at Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova.

Horford and Dellavedova got tangled on the floor while scrambling for a loose ball. As Dellavedvoa was rolling up on his right knee, Horford brought his right arm down hard to the side of the scrappy guard's head.

The officials took several minutes looking at the play on a video monitor before assessing Horford with a Flagrant 2 foul and ejecting him. He had 14 points.

It's the second time in this series Dellavedova has been involved in a loose-ball situation. While diving for a ball in Game 2, he accidentally injured Atlanta's Kyle Korver, knocking him out of the playoffs with a severely sprained ankle.

Dellavedova, too, had a run-in with Chicago's Taj Gibson in the second round.

REDS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Trevor Bauer pitched into the eighth inning and the Cleveland Indians extended their winning streak to six games with a 5-2 victory over the slumping Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

Cincinnati has dropped eight in a row, its longest losing streak since 2009. The Reds have been outscored 54-19 during the streak that has dropped them to a season-worst seven games under .500 at 18-25.

Cleveland, which has won eight of 10, took advantage of three Cincinnati errors to continue its hottest stretch of the season. David Murphy, Nick Swisher and Carlos Santana each drove in a run.

Bauer (4-1) took a shutout into the seventh when Marlon Byrd hit a solo homer for the only run allowed by the right-hander in 7 2-3 innings.

Rookie Raisel Iglesias (1-1), starting in place of Johnny Cueto, allowed two runs in three innings. The Reds announced Saturday that the rookie from Cuba would replace Cueto, who has a sore right elbow.

MLB-RANGERS-HAMILTON

UNDATED (AP) -- Josh Hamilton is set to start another chapter in his dependence-interrupted baseball career.

The outfielder will start in left field for Texas when they open a series in Cleveland today. Hamilton will mark his return to the Rangers, where he won the 2010 MVP award. The Angels shipped him back to Texas in April after Hamilton's self-reported alcohol and cocaine relapse last offseason. His Rangers reunion comes following shoulder surgery in February and a rehab assignment in the minors.

Houston's Dallas Keuchel (KY'-kehl) takes his 6-0 record and American League-leading 1.67 ERA into his start this afternoon at Baltimore.

Red Sox slugger Mike Napoli brings his newly signed torrid bat to Minnesota for the start of a three-game series. He had a child named Ethan sign his bat in the dugout at Fenway Park on Friday, then hit four homers and drove in eight runs in three games against the Angels.

Bartolo Colon starts for the Mets against visiting Philadelphia, a day after his 42nd birthday. He's 6-3 with a 4.85 ERA going into the matchup.

A little bit of history will be made when Seattle visits Tampa Bay. It will mark the first-ever matchup of big league managers who played in the Little League World Series -- Lloyd McClendon of the Mariners and Kevin Cash of the Rays.

NBA-SCHEDULE

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Warriors are hoping to break out the brooms in Houston tonight and sweep their way into the NBA Finals. Golden State has a commanding 3-0 lead in their NBA Western Conference final with the Rockets, after a dominating 35-point win on Houston's home court Saturday.

One more victory and the Warriors will move into the championship round for the first time since they won the 1975 title. And they have four shots at getting it done.

The Rockets have already overcome long odds this post-season, rallying from down 3-1 in the conference semifinals to knock out the Clippers.

But the Warriors posted the best record in the regular season and are on a roll behind MVP Stephen (STEHF'-ehn) Curry.

They head into tonight's Game 4 knowing that no team in NBA history has lost a series after leading 3-0.
