2014-15 NBA PLAYOFFS FIRST ROUND FROM GAME 3 ON….
Now with the first two games in this year’s playoffs in the books, it’s time for change of sceneries and let’s see if it meant for change of results.
Now from the Eastern Conference Playoff so far:
There were no change of results in the Washington Wizards-Toronto Raptors series as the Wizards brought out the brooms as Paul Pierce continued to back up his statements and validating “This is why you brought me here!” The Cleveland Cavaliers also brought out the brooms in their series over the Boston Celtics. Not only were brooms brought out of their series, but fines, suspensions and an arm were brought off too (pictured above from Inside The NBA’s ‘Gone Fishing’ portion from Kelly Olynyk). Even without J.R. Smith for the new two games and Kevin Love likely out for the remainder of the playoffs, they will be fine, because you got LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. And it only adds when they will have home court to begin the next season. The Cleveland Cavaliers are in chill mode as the Chicago Bulls are playing a disappearing act with the Milwaukee Bucks. And in the final series, the same goes for the Washington Wizards who are in chill mode as a sighting that has nearly been forgotten in Deron Williams decides to show that he isn’t washed up yet. He has no choice but to show up…particularly with that five-year $100 million contract!
Now from the Western Conference playoffs thus far:
The brooms were brought out by the Golden State Warriors, that included overcoming a huge deficit in Game 3 and the New Orleans Pelicans deciding not to rebound on the defensive end in key points. Now they are in good and easy position as they are waiting on the winners of the Portland Trail Blazers-Memphis Grizzlies series, who are both dealing with key injuries. The Houston Rockets just ended the Dallas Mavericks’ miserable end to their season last night. And the series of all series with the Los Angeles Clippers-San Antonio Spurs heads back to San Antonio with the Spurs up 3-2. Coach Pop continues to apply the “Hack-A-Shaq” strategy again on DeAndre Jordan, in which he was 7-16 from the stripe. And again, Tim Duncan continues to prove that ‘age is nothing but a number’ hitting for 21 points and making a key block on Blake Griffin. So let’s see if Austin Rivers can put on another Alamo show in attempts in bringing it back to the Staples Center for a deciding Game 7!
