John Wall and IT went cold in the late 4th and Bradley Beal kept it going for the Wizards with 38 points. However, the unlikely hero of the night, Kelly Olynyk, came up big for Boston from the bench in the 4th, finishing with 26 points!

Boston will head to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time in 5 years.

Warriors vs. Spurs tonight at 8pm.

San Antonio Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard has been ruled out to play vs. Warriors in Game 2 after aggravating his ankle injury twice in Game 1’s 3rd quarter.

The 2nd time he aggravated the ankle, was by landing on Warriors’ Zaza Pachulia’s foot that slid slyfully where his injured foot would and did land. This occurred after Zaza contested the 3-point shot. Suga thinks it was a dirty play pulled off in a smart way. Cosigned by Stephen A. Smith who took a while to say it was ‘questionable’.

Coach Popovich says Zaza’s closeout on Kawhi was ‘unnatural’.

Zaza has responded saying he is not a dirty player.

The Spurs definitely do not have a chance versus the Warriors without Kawhi.

Celtics vs. Cavs tomorrow at 7:30pm.

It suits the NBA to have a Cavs-Warriors Final and that will be the likely outcome.

The ball is round though and the Celtics have risen to every occasion up to this point. So can Boston as underdogs upset the fairytale ending?

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

Round 1 of the NBA Playoffs is Almost Over. Who is Moving On?!

Round 1 of the NBA Playoffs are coming to an end. The Defending Eastern and Western Conference Champs, Cavs and Warriors respectively are on their way after sweeping their opponents 4-0. The Pacers and Trailblazers have been sent home!

Cavs await the winner of the Bucks-Raptors series. Warriors await the winner of the Jazz-Clippers series.

Rockets vs. OKC

James Harden and the Houston Rockets destroyed OKC 4-1 and are through as well. They await the winner of the Spurs-Grizzlies series.

The remaining teams have been battling it out back and forth, however injuries have played a big part in the outcome.

Celtics vs. Bulls

After the Bulls jumped ahead with the help of veteran, Rondo versus the Celtics they are now behind 2-3. Rondo was finally starting to contribute to the team and play more like the Rondo we know, but he injured his thumb and has had to sit out the last 2 games that they lost.

Jazz vs. Clippers

The Clippers are also without a crucial player, Blake Griffin, who injured his toes. They now trail the Jazz 2-3 in the series. The Jazz look like they may beat them regardless of if Griffin is present or not. However, even though the Clippers do not play consistently well during the season, they are known to be a ‘Playoff team’, so that’s where they show up. Even though the Jazz looks like the better, more complete team, don’t count out CP3 and the Clippers just yet!

Wizards vs. Hawks

The Hawks could not contain John Wall last night. Wizards now lead the Hawks 3-2.

Wall was so pumped up that he wore a cape for his post-game conference interview.

Spurs vs. Grizzlies

‘Grandpa’ Ginobili finally scored some points on Monday night for the Spurs for this series! He then fired up young, Patty Mills who scored raining 3s.

Spurs took the lead in the series 3-2 and play the Grizzlies tonight at 9:30pmET.

Bucks vs. Raptors

The momentum has switched and the Raptors have come alive in the past 2 games. Raptors lead the series 3-2 and they face the Bucks at 7pmET.

Which team will force a Game 7?! Stay tuned!
