Yaaaawn. As excited I was for last night’s slew of games, I am equally as disinterested in tonight’s matchups.
Both series are tied at two games apiece, as the teams vie to see who gets the honor of being eventually wiped out by the Cavs.
That Hawks and Wizards game is so early that it will probably be over by the time the West coast gets home from work and turns on the TV. I guess I’m rooting for the Hawks? They’ve got Bazemore, and thereform my heart.
Bulls and Celtics has been a shockingly fun series. Rajon Rondo was playing inexplicably well prior to breaking the thumb on his shooting hand. The Bulls haven’t been able to hang with the Celtics without him and are running out of time to figure it out.
Playoff Scores from last night
Thunder 99, Rockets 105 (HOU wins series 4-1)
Grizzlies 103, Spurs 116 (SAS leads 3-2)
Jazz 96, Clippers 92 (UTA leads 3-2)
Also, in case you missed it, ESPN sucks. Amidst a bevy of layoffs, they axed Ethan Sherwood-Strauss, one of the best damn basketball writers in the world. I’m shocked, but not surprised. Thankfully a writer that talented won’t be unemployed for long, but it is honestly bumming me out to think that we don’t get any more ESS articles till further notice. Lame.
