The Cleveland Cavaliers pasted the Toronto Raptors 108-89 last night to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. It was also their tenth straight win of the playoffs—they swept both the Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks—and that earned head coach Tyronn Lue a place in the NBA record books. No coach had ever started his career with ten straight playoff wins before Lue did it last night, and the Cavs decided to spring a little celebration on him.

LeBron James organized the sneak attack, telling everyone to grab two bottles of water before Lue came in to address the team. When Lue was done praising his guys, James started to say something, but as soon as he said, "Congratulations to coach Lue," the team pounced and dumped water all over him and his nice suit. They all then got in a huddle and did a little team chant that looked like a whole lot of fun.
