Warriors vs LA Clippers Game 6

KD destroyed the Clippers last Friday night with 50 points to finally send the Clippers home. This series lasted longer than expected. Warriors won 129-110.

Nuggets vs Spurs Game 7

The 2nd seed from the West, the Denver Nuggets whose players are experiencing their first NBA playoffs, moved on to the Semifinals of the NBA playoffs Conference with their well fought win over the San Antonio Spurs, 90-86. The score is definitely not reflective of how the game went. The Nuggets led the majority of the game and had their shots going in. San Antonio played terribly, missing many shots, creating turnovers, giving up offensive and defensive rebounds. Somehow they managed to stay in it and kept it close towards the end, but it was Jamal Murray of the Nuggets that hit the clutch floater with 36.8s remaining in the game and San Antonio could not recover in time. Nikola Jokic was the true star of this series and ended it with a triple double in Game 7.

Raptors vs 76ers Game 1

The Raptors and the 76ers kicked off the NBA Playoffs Conference Semifinals last Saturday. The Raptors don’t usually win Game 1 in a series, but they rolled over the 76ers! They beat the 76ers 108-95. The 76ers just seem to lack enough shooters required to beat the Raptors. Lowry and Leonard led the Raptors to the win.

Celtics vs Bucks Game 1

The Celtics had Giannis a.k.a the Greek Freak on lockdown! I think the Bucks lack the depth to beat the Celtics. If Giannis can’t get past the Celtics’ defense, this series will be over quickly.

Warriors vs Rockets Game 1

Warriors won Game 1 104-100! Suga missed this one, but according to ESPN reports, the Houston Rockets felt cheated by the officiatibg and made it affect them throughout the game. It is felt that even with what they considered bad calls or the lack there of, they should not have allowed the Warriors to beat them with 20 turnovers.
