The 1st round is getting deeper into day by day and the games are great! Here’s a recap on yesterday…

The Nets who looked hopeless lately made a mark beating the #1 Hawks 91-83! The Nets played great with Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young grabbing double-doubles while Bojan Bogdanovic had 19 despite D-Will having another disappointing game with 3 points. The Hawks definitely did not have their best game stat wise with Kyle Korver only scoring 2 and Al Horford putting only 7 on the board. Paul Milsap had 18 points and 17 rebounds while teammate Demmare Carroll had 22 points. The Hawks are only up 2-1

The Bucks avoided a sweep from Chicago with a 92-90 win with another Bayless buzzer-beater! The Bucks drew up a beautiful play to score while Bayless got away from D-Rose on a move! It looks like the Bulls series anyway but it’s nice to see a young team win and put some experience under their belt for the future!

The Grizz took a demanding 3-0 series lead over the Blazers despite the Blazers starters combining for 79 points in a close 115-109 win. The Grizzlies played good keeping the lead throughout the game and look very strong right now..

I gotta give credit to New Orleans for being close with the amazing Warriors as a young team in the west. The vets on this N.O team showed the young players the way while star Anthony Davis had an incredible series to start his playoff career on. They were swept last night with a 109-98 loss but it’s looking good ahead for them. In this game Anthony Davis scored 36 with 11 boards while Eric Gordon grabbed 29 points. The rest of their team played poorly which explains the loss. For G.S they showed how they can be a commanding squad in the playoffs led by Curry and Klay. The 2 combined for 64 last night with Draymond Green scoring 22 with 10 rebounds in a great game. Green will be a big part of this playoff run if they get deep…

In the NHL, the Islanders won 3-1 at the colleseum over Washington to force a game 7 at Washington! This may have been the last game there but if they win they will continue vs the Rangers. 

Calgary won big 7-4 over Vancouver to win the series 4-2! The Flames scored 3 unanswered goals and then 4 more unanswered! Great win for the Flames and they have some needed momentum after this game! 

The Red Wings took a 4-0 win last night over Tampa to go up 3-2 in the series! This was a commanding win for Detroit and this may affect the Lightning’s head going into an ellimination game! 

The Blackhawks took home the series with a 4-2 series win over Nashville after winning 4-3 yesterday! Duncan Keith had a goal and assist in the game despite 2 goals from James Neal…

MLB- Matt Harvey was 1 out away from a nice perfect game against the Yankees in his 1st game in the Bronx but still the Mets won 8-2! This was the most amount of runs the mets have scored this season and they started a new win streak I guess 🙂 . Catcher Kevin Plawecki who was filling in for the injured Travis d’Arnaud has been hitting great with his 1st HR today! Congrats! The Mets and Yanks play tonight on ESPN at 8:05… Also in the MLB, Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright had a very wierd  injury which can be season ending but is not determined yet. We don’t know much about what his timetable or if he will be out for the season but this is a HUGE loss for them and the pitching staff will take a blow…
