It was an exciting start to the NBA Playoffs this weekend. I have made a new bracket above. It is super confusing to try to bracket for the playoff since the games take place in series rather than just one game but I did it anyways. Let me know what you think. Here is a look at what happened this weekend.
Chicago Bulls, Philadelphia 76ers, 103-91
#Start what you finished, cough cough, we don’t care if you get injured.
This game went as many had expected with the Bulls winning. What wasn’t expected was Derrick Rose’s injury in the last minute. Now people are saying that the Bulls don’t have the same chances in the East. As I wrote before the Bulls have played without Rose before and still managed to win. I think they will continue this trend on Tuesday.
Oklahoma City Thunder, Dallas Mavericks, 99-98
#Durant this is why I got the scoring title.
Thunder’s Kevin Durant was the star of this game making a jump shot with 1.5 seconds left in the game that sealed the Thunder’s victory.
Miami Heat, New York Knicks, 100-67
#Lebron James whining will get you everywhere.
This was such a sad game for the Knicks. Heat’s Lebron James scored 32 points but it didn’t stop him from complaining about a foul. I think we all knew the Knicks were going to struggle but hoped it wouldn’t be this much.
Orlando Magic, Indiana Pacers, 81-77
#Why is everyone so surprised? -Magic
The Magic won despite not having star Dwight Howard who is out due to a back injury. Everyone thought the Pacers would have this in the bag. The Pacers played poorly and handed the game to the Magic.
Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, 99-98
#Clippers have something to prove.
This was an amazing game the Clippers were down by 21 points in the third quarter. Chris Paul managed to rally them back to overtake the Grizzlies. The bummer is that Clipper’s Caron Butler broke his hand during the game and will be out.
