The Cleveland Cavaliers have yet to be defeated in this year's NBA playoffs. They haven't lost a single game this postseason and the way that Eastern conference finals matchup is looking right now, it's hard to think the Cavaliers will be defeated any time soon.

On Friday night the Boston Celtics hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of their conference finals series, with Cleveland taking Game 1 on Wednesday. The crowd of more than 18,000 fans at TD Garden was hoping their team will perform better than they did in Game 1 and possibly tie the series at 1-1. Entering Friday's game, Cleveland had won five straight playoff games on the road.

Historic first half by the Cavaliers

Following Cleveland's dominant Game 1 win, in which the Cavs led by as many as 28, the way that Game 2 started it looked like the same outcome is on the way again.

Midway through the first quarter Cleveland led by 11 points (21-10) and at the end of the first period they held a 32-18 lead. Early in the second quarter that lead was increased up to 20 points (38-18) and with J.R. Smith's three-pointer at the end of the second quarter, the Cavaliers had a staggering 41-point advantage at halftime (72-31).

The 41-point lead at halftime is the largest halftime lead in NBA postseason history. LeBron James scored 22 points and dished out six assists in that first half for Cleveland. Cavs' biggest lead of the game was 50 points (103-53) and they ended up winning the game 130-86. The Celtics played the entire second half without Isaiah Thomas, who had a strained right hip. It was an embarrassing loss for the Celtics as they were out-rebounded 45-39 in this one and shot just 37.2% from the field.
