Twitter jokes from ugly Cavs-Celtics Game 2

After being embarrassed by the Cavaliers in Game 1, the Celtics seemed weirdly confident going into Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Isaiah Thomas told reporters at practice the day before:

“We’re not scared of Cleveland. They’re not the Monstars. They’re not on ‘Space Jam.'”

Jaylen Brown told reporters the day of the game:

“There’s bigger threats in my neighborhood than LeBron James, so I have no fear – I have no fear whatsoever of LeBron.”

Then, the game started and the Celtics got completely destroyed in front of their home crowd for the second time this week. Thanks to a J.R. Smith buzzer-beater, the Cavs jumped out to a 41-point lead at the half.

Following Game 1, I shared a roundup of funny jokes from Twitter, but for this game, the best jokes were already shared by halftime.
