The NBA playoffs are here and we are off to the races! The L.A. Clippers lost Game 1 and home court advantage to the Utah Jazz. What is to become of this for the star-studded Los Angeles Clippers? Clips coach Doc Rivers will need to find answers in order to rebound from their Game 1 loss. The Chicago Bulls found life in their Game 1 victory in Boston. The eighth seeded Chicago Bulls will need more from their one-man show, Jimmy Butler, in order to win Game 2.
The Washington Wizards are moving on to the next round, by eliminating the Chicago Bulls 75-69 in Chicago in Game 5. John Wall was unstoppable, because Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin were unmatched for him. There’s no one on the Bulls team that could contain Wall because of his athleticism and foot speed. The Grizzlies take Game 5 in overtime against the Thunder 100-99 and go up 3 games to 2. The combination of Tony Allen and Tayshaun Prince was too much for Kevin Durant. There’s no one scoring, if Durant can’t score. The Clippers beat the Warriors 113-103 and are one game away from the second round. The Clippers play team ball, because Doc Rivers wants them to play that way.
