Phoenix won the division and earned the No. 2 overall seed in the Western Conference. Though the Suns had not reached the NBA Playoffs once the decade prior, this is team certainly capable of getting to the Western Conference Finals, maybe even winning the West for all we know. As for the Lakers, James is not getting any younger, and his team pretty much ran on fumes all season.Minnesota Timberwolves Mouse Pads
The name of the game is to score, and Portland does that with the best. But if they continue to have a below-average defense, they’ll be going nowhere.Toronto Raptors Mouse Pads
Several of this year’s contenders have their own stories of woe. Philadelphia’s most famous recent playoff pain was Kawhi’s four-bouncer to eliminate the 76ers two years ago, but their bugaboo has been Boston, who defeated them the year before and after Leonard’s miracle shot. Milwaukee couldn’t get past Toronto on multiple occasions before an embarrassing performance losing to Miami in the bubble. The West’s top seed, Utah, followed consecutive second-round exits in 2017 and 2018 with first-round bow outs the past two seasons. Denver’s series seem bound by law to always run the full seven games as they’ve slowly cemented themselves as a Western power. All these teams have lost enough to know their hunger is real.New Orleans Pelicans Mouse Pads
"I'm convinced that, again, without some of the unforeseen circumstances this year, the challenges that we had to face, that we'd be a championship-caliber team," he said. "So the goal is to try to keep that core group together."
Turns out, as Irving said, “Basketball is basketball. Once we step on the floor, then it’s who can score the most and who can get the most stops.”
The Denver Nuggets have grown quite accustomed to playing seven-game series. But for once they didn't need to go the distance, as they closed out the Portland Trail Blazers in six with a 126-115 win on Thursday.
The 76ers tied up the series with ease in Tuesday’s Game 2 and will head over to Atlanta for Games 3 and 4 on Friday and Monday, respectively. Atlanta was hanging around for the first three quarters, but were on the donut side of an 11-0 run to help Philadelphia get the job done. Joel Embiid was phenomenal as usual and, possibly of more importance, his knee didn’t look to bother him once in his 35 minutes. He finished the contest with a second consecutive new playoff career-high 40 points (13-of-25 FG), adding 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, two triples and three turnovers, notching his seventh career playoff game with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds (just one behind Charles Barkley’s eight, with only Dolph Schayes’s 13 and Wilt Chamberlain’s 14 ahead of them). He’s also the first Sixers player with 40 in a playoff game since Allen Iverson in 2003, so he’s ready for his moment to say the least. It was just your typical “I didn’t win MVP, I must go off” performance, and he may have taken it home if not for missing 21 games in the regular season. Tobias Harris had 22 points (with his 16 points in the first quarter being his playoff-high in any quarter), six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block on 11-of-19 from the floor, while Seth Curry also started hot to finish with 21 points and five triples. Shake Milton, who was in the biggest of slumps for much of the latter part of the year, came up huge to score 14 points in as many minutes with four 3-pointers and three boards. He was also a team-best +15 net rating, and it’s worth noting that this is a guy who had 17 points combined in his six playoff games before this (2.83 ppg). Atlanta actually had a ridiculous 32-0 halftime advantage in terms of bench scoring, but Shake had something to say about that. Ben Simmons was not very good with just four points and seven dimes, and of course he missed his only two free throws, while Danny Green had just five points but a new career-high eight assists in the dominant win.Miami Heat Mouse Pads
