The Cleveland Cavaliers dominated Game 1 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics, and Kyrie Irving had no problem rubbing it in their face.

Thomas and Tristan Thompson got into a heated exchange during the third quarter, and even though the two were separated, Irving felt the need to remind Thomas about the beating the Celtics were receiving.

Irving started clapping in front of the Celtics’ All-Star and told Thomas to check the scoreboard.

Personally, we love a little gamesmanship.

The Cavaliers took Game 1 at TD Garden by a score of 117-104.
