James made the first team for a record-tying 11th time, matching the mark set by Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone.
A loss on Friday would also leave the Celtics with the formidable proposition of having to win four out of five games to take the Eastern Conference Finals - a almost impossible duty against the Cavaliers that since LeBron James returned to Cleveland in 2014-15 season has a 33-4 postseason record against the Eastern Conference teams.
What we've learned after only one night of basketball between the Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers is that these teams are in different divisions, really because of one player.
Game 2 of the Cavs-Celtics game might be the LeBron James show, but J.R. Smith found a way to stand out in what is a historic beatdown of the Celtics in Boston.

"These opportunities don't come around very much", Hayward said earlier this month.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James dribbles during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, in Boston, on May 7. He's averaging 31, 9.4 and 9.2 against Boston this season.
If the Celtics have a great night shooting, particularly 3-pointers, they can compete with anybody. I don't know what's happening here.
For the better part of three quarters Wednesday night, the Boston Celtics had done little to deter LeBron James from getting to the spots he desired to get to. And 13 of the Cavs star's 14 field goals came inside the paint.
One of the Celtics' issues all night was not sending help when James got into one-on-one situations.
"It has to be a five-man effort; it's not one guy who can really do that", Crowder told reporters Thursday. "One game. They took care of business, and we just gotta take care of business in Game 2".
Asked if he's concerned that any of the projected top-10 point guards, such as Ball, Fox, North Carolina State's Dennis Smith and Frank Ntilikina of France fitting with Ben Simmons, Colangelo replied, "I think any of the guards on the board could complement Ben Simmons". Stevens said. "To me, going through the ups and downs of a year, we usually just talk about development in terms of minutes". While many players on the Cleveland Cavaliers are a capable shooter from a distance, Love happens to outshoot all of them in the National Basketball Association. "Obviously he got comfortable with what we were doing on the defensive end, and he had his way". "But we've been talking, and he's been ready, and tonight was a huge performance from him".

Production won't begin until this fall, and Sony Pictures will most likely reveal most of the cast-list at that time. Fans have longed for a solo Venom film and Sony seems to be listening, making it a top priority with a 2018 release.
They gave double priority to offense and slacked on defense - a strategy good enough for a Western Semifinals appearance. Yet two of the final three games in this series are at TD Garden, where the Wizards haven't won since April 16, 2014.
