The Boston Celtics were no match for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. The basketball world was stunned by the utter beatdown the Celtics endured, with Cleveland putting up one of the most impressive first half performances in postseason history en route to an easy 2-0 series win.
Naturally, the internet reacted with a mix of horror and glee. Many Cleveland fans began calling the win the Boston Massacre, a reference to the March 1770 shooting of Boston colonists by British soldiers that went on to spark the American Revolution.
Someone even went to change the Wikipedia entry for the Boston Massacre to make LeBron and the Cavaliers responsible for the atrocity.
Meanwhile, Inside the NBA went a little less U.S. history and a little more Warner Brothers in its recap of the game on Friday night.
