A DAY IN THE NBA PLAYOFFS 4/21/19

THEY WERE 4 GAMES YESTERDAY ON EASTER SUNDAY! WE WILL BE TAKING A LOOK AT ALL THE TEAMS THAT WERE IN ACTION.

SCORES & THOUGHTS:

BOSTON CELTICS 110

INDIANA PACERS 106

BOSTON WINS SERIES 4-0

BOSTON WILL FACE THE WINNER OF THE BUCKS AND PISTONS SERIES! BOSTON TOOK CARE OF BUSINESS AND SWEPT 🧹 THE PACERS. A GOOD SIGN FOR THE CELTICS IS THE PLAY OF GORDON HAYWARD. HE PLAYED STRIKINGLY WELL SCORING 20P OFF 7/9 SHOOTING. GOING FORWARD THEY WILL NEED HIM TO CONTINUE TO PLAY WELL.

THE PACERS DID NOT HAVE THEIR ALL STAR IN VICTOR OLADIPO. THROUGHOUT THIS SERIES THE PACERS SHOW GRITTINESS AND TOUGHNESS THEY SCRAPPED BUT WERE THEY WERE OUTMATCHED BY THE CELTICS! ALL IN ALL THE PACERS HAD A GOOD YEAR.

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS 113

LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS 105

WARRIORS LEAD 3-1

IN GAME 4

THE CLIPPERS PUT THEIR HEART INTO THIS GAME. THE CLIPPERS WERE UP IN SCORE TOWARDS THE END OF THE 3RD QUARTER. DUE TO THEIR ROOKIE SHAI GILGEOUS-ALEXANDER WHO FINISHED WITH 25P! LOU WILLIAMS HAD A POOR GAME. HE STRUGGLED MIGHTILY SHOOTING 2/10.

FOR THE WARRIORS CURRY HAD A BAD SHOOTING NIGHT BUT HE MADE FOR THAT BY DOING EVERYTHING ELSE. KLAY GOT HOT IN THE FIRST HALF SCORING 27P. KLAY FINISHED THE GAME WITH 32P. KEVIN DURANT FINISHED WITH A BIG GAME AS WELL.

TORONTO RAPTORS 107

ORLANDO MAGIC 85

RAPTORS LEAD 3-1

IN GAME 4

ORLANDO GOT EXPOSED LAST NIGHT AS THIS SERIES MORE THAN LIKELY IS OVER. NEXT GAME IS IN TORONTO AS THEY’LL BE LOOKING TO CLOSE. THE MAGIC HAD AN OPPORTUNITY EARLY BUT COULD NOT MAINTAIN THE LEAD. AARON GORDON HAD HIS BEST GAME OF THE SERIES DROPPING 25P 7R 5A! POINT BLANK THE MAGIC DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TALENT TO COMPETE WITH RAPTORS.

FOR TORONTO THEY JUST GAVE THE BALL TO KAWHI AND HE GOT BUSY! WATCHING HIM IN THIS SERIES IT IS HARD TO ARGUE THAT HE IS NOT THE BEST PLAYER IN THE EAST!

PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS 111

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER 98

BLAZERS LEAD 3-1

IN GAME 4

FROM OKC SIDE IM NOT SURE WHAT ELSE THEY CAN DO WHEN WESTBROOK AND GEORGE ARE HAVING BAD SHOOTING NIGHTS. THIS TEAM NEEDS TO GET IT TOGETHER QUICK. BEFORE THEY WET THE BED AGAIN AND MESS AROUND AND GET ELIMINATED IN THE FIRST ROUND.

WHICH WOULD BE THREE YEARS IN A ROW FOR RUSS AND TWICE FOR PG-13. RUSSELL WESTBROOK 14P ON 5/21 SHOOTING WILL NOT CUT IT IF THEY WANT TO ADVANCE TO THE SECOND ROUND. I EXPECT THEM TO PLAY BETTER BUT IM NOT SURE IF THEY HAVE ENOUGH TO WIN THREE GAMES IN ROW!

FOR PORTLAND THEY LOOK MORE FOCUSED , DESPERATE AND DETERMINATED TO GET OUT OF THE FIRST ROUND THIS YEAR. DAMIAN LILLARD HAD A SOLID GAME FINISHING WITH 24P 8A. THEY ALSO HAD VERY GOOD GAME FROM CJ.
