Many Playoffs Notes

May 23, 2019

After six full weeks (the last 21 days of April, first 21 days of May—April games “shower” and “flower” more games in May) of at least one playoff game each day in either the NBA or NHL, there were none last night.

Three of the four final round participants in the two leagues are known as Golden State (Warriors) will be in their fifth straight NBA final, while the Boston Bruins are in their third in nine seasons.

Meanwhile the St. Louis Blues, last in the final 49 years ago when they were swept by the Bruins (Boston went (2-6) in 8 final round appearances, in the 47 completed seasons in which the Blues failed to make the final ’71-2018) will be Boston’s opponent, as the two great sports cities meet for the eleventh time in a final (Boston has won 7 of the 10).

Action in the one “semi” still going, resumes tonight (no game in either league tomorrow, Sunday and Tuesday) as the Milwaukee Bucks (2-6) in previous “semis,” host the Toronto Raptors (0-1) in such series, in the seemingly pivotal fifth game of a (2-2) series.

This is the first of nine Bucks’ semi-final series, in which the home team has won the first four games, just the second to be (2-2) and only the fifth not to be (3-0).

Toronto, where the first ever NBA, then the BAA game was contested between the  Toronto Huskies, in their lone season (’46-’47) and New York Knicks, is bidding for their first road semi-final round win (0-5).

 

TV/(Why even call it the tail at this point?!) “Wags” 10 off days for the Bruins, 9 for the Warriors and 5 for the Blues!
