The Boston Celtics didn’t look like they even belonged on the same floor as the Cleveland Cavaliers, in game-2 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals last night. Cleveland completely dominated the number one seated team in the east, and lead at the half, by 41-points which is a new NBA record.

Isiah Thomas only scored 2-points against the Cavalier defense and ended up leaving the game with a hip strain. The Boston defense had no answers in stopping the Cavs from scoring at will.

The Cavaliers shot 48.7% from above the 3-point line, and LeBron James made 4 of 6 from above the arc.  In the end the Boston Celtics would fall to the Cleveland Cavaliers 130-86.

They let the Cavs score more points in a play-off game than Cleveland has ever done. Now down 2-0 to Cleveland, it doesn’t look good if you’re a fan of the Celtics. The news gets even worse for Boston.

They have to play games 3 & 4 in Cleveland. Game-3 takes place Sunday at Quicken Loans arena, and if the Cavs play the way they’ve played, the Celtics have little hope of stopping them.

It’s starting to look as though the Boston Celtics could get swept. They don’t look anything like the Celtics that faced the Cavs during the regular season, and we all know it’s difficult to come back once you’re down 2-0.

Cleveland is as focused as I’ve ever seen them. They are clearly on a mission to get back to the finals, and I don’t think the Boston Celtics have a prayer of stopping them.
