The Eastern and Western Conference Finals are set and begin tomorrow with Wariors vs Trail Blazers!
How did we get here?
Bucks vs Celtics – Game 5
Giannis and the Bucks took care of the Celtics easily, 116-91 to reach their 1st Eastern Conference Finals since 2001.
Warriors vs Rockets – Game 6
The Warriors took care of the Rockets without KD (injury) on Friday night. They won 118-113. Steph Curry was scoreless in the 1st half, scored 10 in the 3rd, then 23 in the 4th Quarter! Klay Thompson also facilitated crucial plays and scored 3-pointers when it mattered. Kevon Looney was sensational off the bench with 14.
KD was diagnosed with a mild calf strain since he left Game 5 last Wednesday in the 3rd quarter. A calf strain takes 7-10 days to heal, but he should be re-evaluated this week.
Two Thrilling Game 7s!
Nuggets vs Trail Blazers
The Nuggets had as much as a 17-point lead. The Trail Blazers broke a Game 7 Playoffs record for biggest comeback. The 4th quarter was all CJ McCollum with shots and blocks, scoring 37 points and leading his team to the Western Conference Finals to meet the Warriors.
Seth and Steph Curry will meet. This is the first time that 2 brothers will meet in the Conference Finals of the NBA Playoffs.
Raptors vs 76ers
This game was close from start to finish, but the end is what will be remembered in NBA Playoffs history and by the Raptors forever.
Kawhi Leonard (41 points) hit an epic dagger at the buzzer! He threw an over 18ft high bouncer that bounced off the rim 4 times before falling in to give the Raptors a 92-90 victory and a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals.
