5 amazing facts from the Cavaliers’ 44-point beatdown of the Celtics

This was unfair.

The Boston Celtics told themselves they’d put forth a much better performance than their lackluster effort in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. That … did not happen.

Instead, the Cavaliers rolled over them in Game 2 like they were a rec-league team going against the top varsity program in the state. They led by 41 at halftime (an NBA record) and eventually polished off a 130-86 victory to take a 2-0 series lead.

The Cavaliers didn’t quite set an record for the biggest blowout in NBA playoff history. That mark is 58 points, a record held by the 2009 Nuggets (against the Hornets) and 1956 Minneapolis Lakers (against the St. Louis Hawks). They also didn’t set a record for largest margin of defeat for the Celtics — that number is 52 points.

But the Cavaliers planted their flag in the ground anyway, shouting to the rooftops that their best is significantly better than anyone else’s best in the East.

Here are a few amazing facts about this game:

1. Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and LeBron James made 27 shots in this game. The Celtics as a team made 31.

2. Those three players scored 54 first-half points. The Celtics as a team had 31.

3. The Cavaliers made 10 threes in the first half. The Celtics made 11 shots total.

4. A No. 1 seed has never lost like this.

5. In their last three games at TD Garden, the Cavaliers have outscored the Celtics by 80 points.

Let me read that last one again.

In their last three games at TD Garden, the Cavaliers have outscored the Celtics by 80 points.

That’s an average margin of victory of 26.6 points. This series is over.

Anderson Cooper: If Trump ‘Took A Dump On His Desk,’ Jeffrey Lord Would Defend It

It appears CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has had enough of people making excuses for President Donald Trump’s questionable actions.

Cooper on Friday was asking Jeffrey Lord, a CNN contributor and Trump surrogate, about the president reportedly calling former FBI Director James Comey a “nut job” to Russian officials at the White House. But Lord continued his unconditional support for Trump, saying U.S. presidents can say whatever they want.

“I don’t care what he says to the Russians. I mean, he’s the president of the United States,” Lord said. “If he wants to say that, if Barack Obama wants to say whatever, if George Bush says I looked in his eyes …”

Cooper, apparently fed up, interrupted: “If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.”

The sharp comment made Lord laugh.

Cooper’s not the only one frustrated by Lord’s on-air ramblings.

Last year, Lord claimed there were no people of color in the United States, which upset Latina political commentator Maria Cardona. In April, he called Trump the “Martin Luther King of health care,” to the shock of fellow TV panelists. 

So, when Cooper dropped his “dump-on-his-desk” comment, some people said it was a long time coming.

Trump’s aides are starting to realize what they’ve gotten themselves into. Poor babies.

Break out the world’s 20 tiniest violins—one definitely will not be enough for the sad story of the Trump staffers. They went to work for a man who even casual observers could see was unstable, abusive, and unable to accept responsibility for his actions, and now they’re suffering under an unstable, abusive boss who blames staff for his own screw-ups. And instead of getting to have the fun of stripping health coverage from tens of millions of people and giving giant tax breaks to billionaires, the Trump staff are, well, scrambling to deal with their boss’s many screw-ups and then being blamed when it’s not possible to avoid bad headlines.

One Republican operative in frequent contact with White House officials described them as “going through the stages of grief.” Another said some aides have “moved to angry,” frustrated with a president who demands absolute loyalty but in recent days has publicly tarnished the credibility of his team by sending them out with one message — only to personally undercut it later with a contradicting tweet or public comment.

Some of them are taking it in the true Trump spirit:

And a third said that others are sticking around purely for self-interest, hoping to juice their future earning potential. This Republican added that any savvy White House staffer should be keeping a diary. “The real question is, how long do you put up with it?” this person said. “Every one of those people could get a better-paying job and work less hours.”

And they’re starting to put the blame for their situation where it ultimately rests:

The Trump White House has always been full of leaks to the news media. But the latest waves of anonymous griping have subtly shifted from warring aides bickering among themselves to staffers training their frustrations on the president, as well. Those who remain fully loyal to Trump report a growing sense of isolation.

Poor sad babies. When they get around to realizing how they got themselves into this position and what’s wrong with this picture beyond that they personally are taking blame for someone else’s recklessness, we can start to talk about whether maybe, after years of atonement, they deserve sympathy. For now, they deserve every bit of misery they’re living through—it’s not half of what they’re working to deliver to immigrants and Medicaid patients and millions of other Americans and for that matter people around the world.
