Get the broom. There are some teams that need to be escorted off the court and out of our hearts--at least in the context of the NBA playoffs. Sadly, the Pelicans completed their last brave standoff with the Golden State Warriors. There was one glimmer of hope for Anthony Davis and New Orleans, but it was pummeled with a 20-point comeback by Golden State in Game 3 late within the 4th quarter.
The Wizards rendered their magic on the Toronto Raptors to leave them winless in the series. The Raptors were sent back to Canada with a 4-0 series record.
In a predictable fashion, the Celtics were also brushed back to their origin by the Cavaliers. There was never much hope or stock put into the young, Boston Celtic team from the beginning of the series.
Did you favorite team make the cut? If not, you can still catch a variance of interesting NBA face-offs. The Hawks and Nets are battling in a 2-1 series. The Grizzlies are looking to finish out their series with another sweep against the Portland Trailblazers. The Clippers and Spurs are dead even with a 2-2 series tie. The Bucks escaped the grasp of the Bulls in the last game and pulled out a win, leaving their series at 3-1. Also, just when you thought the Mavericks’ goose was cooked, they managed to come away with a win that protected them from elimination last night. Their series is now 3-1.
Who do you think will be crowned the next NBA champion? Regardless, It’s definitely going to be an interesting playoff run.
