NBA ‘offs Update

April 30, 2022

Today, a Saturday and no ‘offs action on April 30th as the NBA is on to the quarters with no 7th games in their prelims while the NHL playoffs finally are upon us as the endless “reg” has just the meaningless, make up Seattle at Winnipeg tilt tomorrow.

“We” previewed and noted Celts/Bucks where the Middleton injury is an “odds key.”

Now Miami has moved from just under a 2 to 1 series fave to just under 4 to 1 as Sixers’ key player Joel Embid is out indefinitely.

Oh the injuries and do they ever realize the longer the ‘offs season (it ended on this date in ’71 with the current champion Bucks’ first title) goes, the more likely there will be injuries. It is about attrition more and more and less and less about the best or even better team.

In the Western Conference, Devon Booker is seemingly back and top ranked Phoenix (Suns) are a nice favorite vs the Dallas Mavericks.

The Warriors will be nice favorites vs the Memphis Grizzlies, I would think.

Milw (118-106) on a Friday night, 51 years ago on this date to clinch the crown.
