More NBA Notes

April 12, 2023

Two more NBA round of 16/preliminary series are set, each involving one of the two NBA glory teams, the 17 time champion Boston Celtics and the 16 time champion, L.A. Lakers.

Five of those 16 Lakers’ crowns were amassed while they played in Minneapolis.

Speaking of Minneapolis, the current home team Timberwolves went as cold as Minne winter weather and dissipated a nice lead and lost the West 7/8 game to the Lakers in overtime last night.

The manifestation is the Wolves get another chance and will be home favorites vs tonight’s West 9/10 winner, in which the New Orleans Pelicans are hosting the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Lakers now face the Memphis Grizzlies, who are decent sized 3 plus point(s) favorites in game 1, but just say 6 plus to 5 series favorites.

Meanwhile on a night a “Hawks” team, the low points, Chicago Blackhawks shocked the Pittsburgh Penguins to severely jeopardize the Pens’ 16 straight ‘offs appearances streak, the Atlanta Hawks upset the Miami Heat, at Miami and now face the Boston Celtics for the 13th time in playoffs annals.

Boston, which won 10 of the 12 previous series vs the Hawks, going (3-1) vs the then St. Louis and Western Division Hawks in final round play), is an overwhelming 10 to 1, 8 plus to 1 “person to person” series “fave”and 9 plus points favorites, in #1, to be played Saturday afternoon, in Boston.

That game will be the second of the round of 16 games, beginning around 3:30 Daylight Savings Time.

In another Saturday afternoon Celtics/Hawks game, likely “overseen” by the great broadcaster, Lindsey Nelson, the Celtics prevailed (122-103), in what was the 1960 NBA finale, a game 7 for “all the marbles”

Frank Ramsey led Celtics scorers in that game with 24 points. The Celts hit 122, both Bill Russell and Tom Heinsohn had 22 points.
