The Eastern and Western Conference Finals are set and begin tomorrow with Wariors vs Trail Blazers!

How did we get here?

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.

If you missed NBA Playoff games over the weekend!

These are you semifinal matchups that promise to be exciting!

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.

Since one of the biggest upsets in tennis history at the last US Open when Vinci stopped Serena from achieving a Calendar slam, Serena has been plagued with injuries. But so have the other top 5 seeds for the women at the beginning of this year. Serena did knee surgery and ended up pulling out of the Hopman Cup recently so there were concerns of how well she could do this year.

Well, Serena steamed pass Sharapova in the Quarterfinals and she is looking like she is in good shape to not only face #4 Radwanska in the Semifinal tonight at 9:30pm on ESPN 2, but the whole Championship!

Suga thinks Serena is all business this year and will take all 4 Major Tournaments. History in the making. Go Serena!
