NBA Playoffs: Quarterfinal Round Update

May 12, 2019

The two time, NBA champion Golden State Warriors advanced to their fifth consecutive NBA semi-final, in the process, “bumping” the Houston Rockets for the fourth time in those 5, winning by 5 points in game 6.

Steph Curry scored all 33 of his points in the second half, as “G.S.” won as a 7 point underdog, playing without Kevin Durant.

Today on the same day/date 45 year anniversary of the Dave Cowens/John Havlicek led (also) Mother’s Day Boston Celtics’ #7 NBA final triumph at Milwaukee (Bucks), there are two game 7’s in the current NBA quarterfinal round.

First at 3:30 Eastern Time on ABC, the Denver Nuggets are 5 plus point(s) favorites vs the Portland Trail Blazers. Next beginning around 7:00 Eastern Time on TNT, the Toronto Raptors are six point favorites vs the Philadelphia 76ers, in the day’s second game 7.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Warriors are in the “semis,” and await today’s winning teams, the Bucks having 5’d the Celtics.

 

45 years ago today, the recently deceased, John Havlicek, pictured above–(where by seemingly applicable standards, he would reside), was named MVP after the Celtics won their first title sans the great Bill Russell, beating the Milwaukee Bucks, on the road in game7/1974 NBA final series.
