Apparently LeBron James was serious with his “I didn’t feel all that great” comments after Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals (despite scoring 38 points in a 117-104 Cavs win over the Celtics).

LeBron is on another level in Game 2, with 22 points (9-of-14 shooting from the field), six assists, three rebounds, three blocks, and two steals.  He’s led the Cavs to a 72-31 halftime lead in Boston. Yes, 72-31, on the road. 41 POINTS! That’s the largest halftime lead in NBA playoff history!

Check out some of LeBron’s ridiculous plays from the first half:

Kevin Love has also scored 18 points (and pulled down eight boards):

Celtics fans are not having an enjoyable time (and this is why you should never face paint):

And the Cleveland set the record for largest halftime lead on this hilarious J.R. Smith buzzer-beater to summarize how things went in the half:

Can we just start the NBA Finals already?

UPDATE: The rest of the game didn’t go much better for the Celtics.
