Celtics' Thomas sits out 2nd half with right hip strain

This was the last thing the Celtics needed, with the severity of his injury still being unknown as well as his status for Game 3, this could be the finishing blow to the Celtics Finals hopes.

Thomas and Al Horford combined to go 0-of-10 in the first half with a total of two points.

In the video above, watch a recap of the Cleveland Cavaliers Game 2 win over the Boston Celtics.

Kevin Love continued his strong play, with 21 points and 12 boards. He was seen laboring up the floor after making contact with the Cavaliers forward and the Boston medical staff decided he shouldn't play in the second half.

"It was definitely a blow", said Celtics guard Avery Bradley, about losing Thomas. That guy is a tough guy and he plays through a lot.

It was a night the record books will not soon forget with the Cavs leading by a record 41 points at halftime and eventually cruising to a record-equalling 13th-straight playoff victory.

Not only did the Cavs get the largest halftime lead in National Basketball Association postseason history (41 points), the Cavs also gave Boston its largest halftime deficit of any home game since the start of the shot clock era.

Thomas missed all six of his field goal attempts and scored two points in 17 minutes. The Cavs haven't played a home game since beating the Toronto Raptors, 125-103, on May 3. They're not on 'Space Jam.' Like, they lace up their shoes just like us.

The Cavs scored the most points, and won by the largest margin in a playoff game, in franchise history.

And LeBron James says the Cleveland Cavaliers can still do better.

"I'm a guy who lives in the moment", James said, downplaying the performance.

After Celtics coach Brad Stevens finished detailing the hip injury that leaves Isaiah Thomas questionable moving forward and after he tried to explain how his team had just endured the most lopsided loss by a No. 1 seed in National Basketball Association history, Stevens was asked where the Celtics go from here.

Said Green: "I think, for IT not to play, he'd have to have one of his legs cut off or something".

Only rookie Jaylen Brown, who said pregame he had no fear of LeBron James, impressed with 19 points on 70 percent shooting.

Even though the Celtics ended the regular season with a better record, the Cavaliers still have the best player on the planet who is operating at a level unlike anything he has shown before. "I don't care if you win by 200 points". This league knows what I bring to the table. "Move" and he hit a pair of first-quarter 3-pointers.

This one more like rubbing the Celtics' noses in the fact that they just couldn't stop him. Celtics players rallied around the notion that they've rallied out of an 0-2 hole once already in these playoffs, against the Chicago Bulls.
