Cavaliers tie Lakers with NBA postseason record 13th straight win

After easily winning Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on the Celtics' home floor, the Cavaliers would have been forgiven for taking things a bit easy on Friday night in Game 2. 

That, however, is not what happened, not in the slightest. 

LeBron James and the Cavs put forth one of the most dominant games in recent memory -- regular or postseason -- as they took the Celtics apart, going up by 50 at one point before winning by 44. 

With the win, Cleveland remains undefeated in this season's playoffs, moving to 10-0 as they march towards a third straight trip to the Finals. In addition to simply just being an impressive feat, this victory was a historic one. In addition to their 10 wins this postseason, the Cavs -- as you may remember -- won three straight games to closeout the Finals last postseason, giving them 13 straight playoff wins, which ties the Los Angeles Lakers for the most all-time.

Judging by the first two games, it doesn't seem that the Cavaliers will have any trouble making it 14 wins in a row on Sunday night during Game 3.
