6 records the Cavs shattered in Game 2
Most 3’s in a quarter? Nope.
How about most 3’s in a playoff game? Nope.
Most 3’s in any game? Nope.
How about, most 3’s in any quarter and in any game (regular or playoffs)? The Golden State Warriors? Ye-nope.
In an unprecedented 48 minutes, the Cavaliers immortalized their place beyond the arc. Whether it’s a streaky King going 4/6 from deep, JR “Ultra-green light” Smith draining six first-half triples or Dahntay breaking the regular season record (23), the Cavs proved that the Warriors aren’t the only ones capable of history.
This past Wednesday, Cleveland clinched records for the most three pointers in…
1. A half regular season (18)
2. A half in the playoffs (18)
3. A regular season game (25)
4. A playoff game (25)
5. A quarter of any game, in any part of the season (10)
Regardless of regular season three-point records or playoff three-point records, the Cavs reminded the NBA on Wednesday that their championship chances reside in their court in the Q. At this point, the only thing that could ruin a Cavs fan’s day (besides potentially losing their first playoff game to Atlanta EVER) is Tim Duncan reclaiming fifth-place in the all-time playoff scoring list (6. LeBron’s newest PR).
Cavs have won 13 straight playoff games vs. the East. Seriously wondering if it'll be 19 straight a few weeks from now.

The only remaining undefeated team in the playoffs travels to Atlanta on Friday in hopes of taking a commanding 3-0 lead. Beware: there’s a new order, and it arrived in Game 2. May the 4th be with you…
