NBA Playoffs Latest News & Results
Last Night, the Brooklyn Nets confirmed their place in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, where they will take on the Milwaukee Bucks in what looks like being a mouth-watering series between the two.
Another dominant display against the Boston Celtics, saw the Nets claim a 123-109 victory to give them a 4-1 win in the series.
Last night, it was James Harden’s turn to shine as he landed a Triple-Double, with 10 rebounds, 10 assists and a team-high 34 points. The usual suspects Kyrie Irving (25 points) and Kevin Durant (24 points) also chipped in with significant contributions.
In the first of last night’s other two games, the Denver Nuggets edged a high scoring encounter with the Portland Trail Blazers 147-140 after overtime in order to take a potentially decisive 3-2 lead in the series.
MVP contender Nikola Jokic was again the man to watch scoring 38 points with 11 rebounds and 9 assists, but he was ably supported by Monte Morris (28 points) and Michael Porter Jr. (26 points, 12 rebounds) in particular.
Damian Lillard had an outstanding individual game for the Blazers, scoring 55 points, with 10 assists and 6 rebounds, but his huge effort proved to be in vain as Portland head into the next game knowing they must win in order to take the series into a final game decider.
Suns Cast Long Shadow Over Lacklustre Lakers
In the final game last night, the long-time favorites to repeat their NBA Championship victory of
last season, the Los Angeles Lakers, now find themselves just one game from elimination after a chastening 115-85 defeat to the Phoenix Suns.
The Suns now lead the series 3-2, with the final game scheduled to be played back at their Talking Stick Resort Arena.
The game was effectively over at half time, with the Suns taking a 30 point lead with them into the interval and the Lakers could not even muster enough form to make a dent in that lead in the remaining two quarters.
LeBron James top scored with 24 points for the Lakers who sorely missed Anthony Davis (pictured).
Devin Booker was the star man for Phoenix with 30 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists in what was an impressive team effort in the first half, which allowed the Suns to give some game time to their replacements in the final two quarters.
If you fancy using the DraftKings offer on tonight’s action in the NBA Playoffs, first up we have the Washington Wizards facing the Philadelphia 76ers with the 76ers leading that series 3-1. This is followed by the New York Knicks against the Atlanta Hawks, with the Hawks holding a 3-1 lead.
