Watch “Full sequence: LeBron James blocks Victor Oladipo, hits game-winning 3 in Game 5 vs. Pacers | ESPN” on YouTube here:

Suga predicts the Pacers will be eliminated in Round 1 and the Cavs will meet the Raptors next if they don’t choke versus the Wizards.

OKC vs Jazz

Wild Wild Westbrook showed up and saved OKC from elimination by rookie team, Utah Jazz with mad moves. Series is now 2-3.

Rockets vs Timberwolves

The Rockets destroyed the Timberwolves and sent them packing. They play the winner of the OKC-Jazz round next!

76ers vs Heat

The 76ers sent Dwyane Wade and the Heat packing in fine style. They await the winner of the Celtics-Bucks series.

Celtics vs. Bucks

How are the NBA Playoffs looking?! Some teams are all tied up!

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Cavs vs. Pacers

LeBron James has managed to bring back the Cavs versus the Pacers. He had two big games scoring 46 and 32 points. The series is now drawn 2-2. He surely can lead the Cavs to beat the Pacers, but if the Pacers stay focused and make shots when it counts and they really want to beat the Cavs, they can. LeBron has sent home the Pacers for the past few years, can the tables turn on him this time? Either way, Suga doesn’t see LeBron James in the NBA Finals this year.

Raptors vs. Wizards 

The Wizards came back versus the Raptors in a heated game last night to tie the series at 2-2.

Celtics vs. Bucks

Giannis and the Bucks have been on a roll versus the Celtics coming from 2 down to tying the series 2-2 yesterday.

76ers vs Heat

Embiid and the 76ers lead the Heat 3-1.

WESTERN CONFERENCE

Trail Blazers vs. Pelicans

Anthony Davis and veteran, Rajon Rondo beat the NBA odds, leading the New Orleans Pelicans to sweep the 3rd seed in the West, the Portland Trail Blazers! They are likely to meet the Warriors next for a much harder series.

OKC vs. Jazz

Ricky Rubio of the Jazz scored the 1st triple double for Utah in the Playoffs since John Stockton! Rubio’s impressive performance helped the Jazz take game 3 and go up on OKC 2-1 in the series. Westbrook of OKC said in a post-game interview that he is going to shut him down!

Rockets vs Timberwolves

After a few close games, the Timberwolves finally got a win versus the Rockets. The Rockets are still up 2-1 in the series.

Warriors vs. Spurs

The highlight yesterday was the San Antonio Spurs playing with pure heart without their beloved Coach Popovich, whose wife died. The Spurs avoided the sweep by the Warriors and routed them 103-90. Aldridge and Rudy Gay played well for the Spurs, but the man responsible was none other than 40-year old Manu Ginobili with 16 points! Manu is now 3rd in all-time Play off 3-pointers made with 321, just passing Reggie Miller. Ray Allen still leads with 385, followed by LeBron James with 337.

With last night’s 132nd win, Manu with teammate, Tony Parker are the winningest duo in NBA Playoff history, taking over from his past teammate, Tim Duncan who was also paired as a duo with Tony Parker.

They head back to Golden State for Game 5, where it is likely that the Warriors will wrap things up. But it was a good win for the Spurs!

Don’t you just love this game?! Stay tuned!

The Bucks and the Grizzlies were sent Home last night in the NBA Playoffs!

The Raptors sent the Bucks packing in 6 with a late 3-pointer by former Spur, Cory Joseph. They will move on for a rematch with the Cavs in the Playoffs.

Nothing but respecr shown between the two oldest players on the court who still played well this series. Vince Carter (L) and Tony Parker (R).

The San Antonio Spurs also move on from a spectacular series with the Memphis Grizzlies. Last night it was veteran, Tony Parker who stepped up big time with 27 points. Kahwi Leonard who played more minutes led the team to victory with 29 points.

Game 7s look doubtful for Round 1. If Suga had to choose 1, I would go with CP3 and the Clippers forcing a Game 7.

Here’s your Schedule for tonight! Enjoy!

Upsets Already in Round 1 of the NBA Playoffs!

Current NBA Playoff Bracket status:

PhotoGrid_1492490014944-1

Round 1 of the Playoffs have begun and we have already had 2 upsets. The Bucks beat the Raptors at home and the bigger story is the Bulls beating the Celtics in their house as well. However, even though the Bulls is the number 7 seed going into the Playoffs and the Celtics is number 1, the match ups are competitive. You cannot ignore the talent and experience of Rondo and D. Wade and the freshness and hunger of Jimmy Butler. This should be an interesting series.

The Pacers have kept close to the Cavs but have failed twice to overcome them. They don’t have what it takes to beat the Cavs this year.

In the West, The Trailblazers held their own versus the Warriors but the Warriors are just in a different class. They will keep the Warriors on their toes this series though.

The Jazz upset the Clippers to take Game 1 but I think these teams will go back and forth like the Hawks and Wizards in the East. They are the number 5 and 4 seeds respectively.

The Rockets rolled over OKC in Game 1. Suga believes OKC has what it takes to upset them but they have a lot of work to do.

The Spurs rolled over the Grizzlies in a Game 1 blowout. Game 2 was more competitive though, where the Grizzlies chipped away a 26-point deficit to a 4-point deficit. The Spurs regrouped and stretched the lead again to win and go up in the series 2-0.

During the game there was visible frustration from Zach Randolph for not getting foul calls, but it was their Coach Fizdale who was the most upset of all.

He went on a huge Post-game tirade on the Refs and is likely to get fined.

Watch “Grizzlies Coach David Fizdale was ABSOLUTELY TRIGGERED and GOES OFF on the referees!!” on YouTube here:

Coach Fizdale’s data does raise eyebrows but he should have quit while he was ahead. It’s not like he was playing a team like the Cavs. He was playing a team with class as well. ‘Kuwiet Kawhi’ is definitely not the type to cry for free throws. It just happens he got a lot.

Coach Fizdale has a ring from being on the Coaching staff for Miami so those Refs better recognize.

I assume they will come out hard at home. Hopefully the data is more reasonable for the rest of their series.

We’ll be looking out for the ‘They’re not gonna ROOK US’ T-shirts.

Westbrook is Now Officially the Triple-Double King!

Oscar Robertson held the record for the most triple-doubles in an NBA season. He scored 41 triple-doubles in the 1961-1962 season with the Cincinnati Royals. The 12-time All Star was also a key player for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1970-1971 season, helping them to win their only NBA title.

Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook set the record last night with his 42nd triple-double, passing Oscar Robertson.

He did it in fine style with 50 points, grabbing 16 rebounds and dishing out 10 assists in a 106-105 win over the Denver Nuggets.

Congrats Russ!
