The Cleveland Cavaliers set a number of records against the Boston Celtics on Friday night (May 19), in their Game 2 victory in the Eastern Conference Finals.
One of the most amazing records was when they set a new postseason mark for largest halftime lead with 41 points, reports ESPN. The score at halftime was 72-31.
The Cavs eventually won 130-86, a 44-point victory that matched the fourth-largest road playoff margin in NBA history.
Cleveland also scored the most points in a playoff game in franchise history and won by their largest postseason margin, while the victory was the team’s 13th consecutive playoff victory, dating to last season, which tied the Lakers run from 1988 and 1989 for the all-time standard.
LeBron James hit an individual mark as well. He scored 30 points — his ninth consecutive playoff game with at least 30 points. That ties the all-time playoff record held by Michael Jordan, who accomplished the feat twice. James also tied Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s mark of 10 straight games with 25 points and 50 percent or better shooting, set in 1970.
