Kawhi Leonard yet AGAIN led the
Raptors to victory!
Game 5, Game 5, Game 5….who’s gonna look alive! The Toronto Raptors took care of business on their home-court as they evened the series to earn the right to go back to the Milwaukee Bucks for a Game 5. The Bucks got a little home cooking as they came out of the forest running and gunning and by midway through the 1st frame, they were up by 14 with no signs of letting up! By the end of the 1st, the Raptors were staring down a 10 point deficit. But they righted the ship and went on a 14 – 2 run to start the 2nd period behind a couple of three’s from Pascal Siakim who finished with a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds and buy the half, the Raptors trimmed the lead to three 49 – 46. Both teams scored the same amount of points of 26 and Fred Van Fleet, the new father whose son was birthed into God’s Great Green Globe, Alliteration, I Love It, on Monday had a career night of 7 three pointers with three of them in the 3rd and outscored the entire Bucks bench 21 – 15. Speaking of three’s, the Raptors notched a franchise record of 18 three’s in a game! By the 4th, Kawhi Leonard, who apparently had some of the Bucks leftover home cooking, played the entire quarter and went on a tear as he scored or assisted on 20 consecutive points as the Raptors outscored the Bucks 33 – 24 in the final frame with Kawhi notching 35 basket filling points to go along with a career high of 9 assists and Kyle Lowry scored 17 as he surpassed DeMar DeRozan as franchise leader in points with 1,126 as the Raptors take the pivotal 3 – 2 series lead and will look to close out the series on Saturday night.

2018 - 2019 All NBA Team
For your NBA Quick News & Notes, the 2018 – 19 All NBA First Team was announced and headlining were MVP frontrunners forward Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks, guard James Harden of the Rockets and filling out the roster was guard Stephen Curry of the Warriors, forward Paul George of the Thunder and center Nikola Jokić of the Nuggets.

He kept my enemies away, He let the sun shine through a cloudy day! Oh, he wrapped me in the cradle of his arms, when he knew I'd been battered and torn! If it had not been for the Lord on my side, where would I be?!?!?!

Kyle Lowry show up in Game 4
The Eastern Conference Finals was rolling last night as the Toronto Raptors wanted to wash, rinse and repeat from their performance in Game 3 to try to even up the series 2 – 2 against the Milwaukee Bucks but needed a collective effort to do so. With 50 plus total minutes played in Game 3 for Pascal Siakim and Kawhi Leonard, they came out of the gate a little sluggish, but their teammates picked up what they could not put down and held down the fort after trailing 12 – 5 before finding their footing and led 32 – 31 after the 1st period. The Raptors went on 9 – 0 run to begin the 2nd with Serge Ibaka’s surging offense as he notched 10 of his 17 points in the 2nd and added multiple offensive and defensive rebounds as the Raptors led 65 – 55 at the half. With Kawhi scoring waaaaay below his average of 32 points per game during the playoffs compared to only 19 points last night, that collective effort came from Kyle Lowry with 25 points and 6 assists and Marc Gasol chipped in 17 along with a team high of 7 assists. Giannis Antetokounmpo had a much improved game than he had in Game 3 and put up a double-double with 25 points and 10 boards while Kris Middleton poured in 30, but it was the Raptors bench that put in yeoman’s work and outscored the Bucks bench 48 – 23 as the Raptors took care of business on their home court and knotted the series 2 – 2 with the 120 – 102 win.

For your NBA Quick News & Notes, the Portland Trail Blazers and head coach Terry Stotts have agreed to a multiyear contract extension as the team announced yesterday, but the team did not disclose terms and finally, the first five picks of the 2018 draft would make up the 2019 All-Rookie first team as Deandre Ayton of the Suns, Marvin Bagley III of the Kings, Luka Doncic of the Mavericks, Jaren Jackson Jr. of the Grizzlies and Trae Young of the Hawks all have been selected.

Draymond & Steph, 1st teammates
to notch a triple-double in the playoffs 
The Portland Trailblazers were seeking some type of mojo at the Moda Center as they faced a must win or a must go home in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors! Both teams were playing like they were at Rucker’s Park with some pick up ball action as they were scorching hot in shooting the rock and after the 1st frame, Golden State led by one 36 – 35. The Blazers kept up the pressure in the 2nd frame especially with the career high night from with Myles Leonard who finished with a double-double of 12 rebounds and the highest points he has ever scored in college or in the NBA of 30 points and the Blazers took a 69 – 65 lead into halftime. The Blazers went on a run late in the 3rd and much like the previous three games, put the Warriors in a gigantic and grand double digit deficit, Alliteration, I Love It, and went up by 17 as the Blazers backcourt in CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard, finally matched the Warriors backcourt in point production of Klay Thompson and Steph Curry with 54 points, but the Warriors mindset is that they are never out of the fight and with God your side, neither are you, however comma I digress! 

Golden State Warriors:
Western Conference Chanmpions
With less than five minutes left in the 4th, McCollum missed an 18 foot jumper and with a layup by Steph Curry, it tied the game at 104 and neither team could one up the other and ended regulation tied at 111. In overtime, both teams went back and forth, back and forth until Draymond Green, who is shooting 20% from the arc, nailed the eventual go ahead three and finished with another triple-double of 18 points, 14 boards and 11 dimes and his point guard Curry, also finished with a triple-double of 37 points, 13 boards and 11 dimes as the pair became the first teammates with a triple-double in the playoffs and swept the Blazers 119 – 117 to take the Western Conference crown and became the sixth professional team from North America to go five straight championships.

Golden State on the way to
The Finals
For your NBA Quick News & Notes, with Warriors win to earn a trip to The Finals, they became the first team since the 1966 Boston Celtics to advance to five consecutive Finals, Steph Curry is now just the sixth player in NBA history to score 35 or more points in each of the first four games of a series, joining Elgin Baylor, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Bernard King and Jerry West and Tim Connelly, the Denver Nuggets' president of basketball operations, has turned down an offer to run the Washington Wizards' front office, according to league sources.

Honor and power be to the One above! Now let your glory reign from heaven above! Oh God you reign and we proclaim that there is none like you!!!

Kawhi Leonard willed his team
in the double OT victory
The Milwaukee Bucks took their 2 – 0 series lead on the road as they were looking not to go back and forth, but in order to do so, they will need get past the Toronto Raptors and We The North in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Raptors put up 30 in the 1st frame and were aided by the Bucks shooting 7 for 21 as Giannis Antetokounmpo got off to a slow start and really didn’t recover offensively as he scored a playoff low of 12 points, but did have 23 Big Boy Rebounds, but committed 8 turnovers. Speaking of turnovers, the Bucks turned the rock over 20 times which led to 21 Raptors points. After being down by 7 at halftime, the Bucks went on a run to trim the Raptors lead to two and by the end of regulation, Pascal Siakim, who finished with a double-double of 25 points and 11 rebounds, missed two key free throws with 7.4 seconds left in the game to break the 96 tie. The Raptors would have to battle in OT without Kyle Lowry and Norman Powell who both fouled out, but with the play of Marc Gasol and Siakim, that gave the Raptors much needed injection of offense and defense. Although he wasn’t as efficient, he still managed to pour in 36 net popping points along with a key steal with less than two minutes in the final overtime frame and Kawhi Leonard eventually led his team to the 118 – 112 double overtime victory as they are now down 1 – 2 in the series.

Damian Lillard playing with a
separated rib
For your Quick NBA News & Notes, Golden State Warriors guard Andre Igoudala MRI results were clean on his left calf and is questionable for potential close out Game 4 tonight and finally, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers, revealed that he is playing with a separated rib that he suffered in the 3rd quarter of Game 2 against the Warriors but won’t use that as excuse.

Game 3 Western Conference Finals For May 18th Featuring The Blazers vs The Warriors, News & His Amazing Grace!!!


On this Sunday morning I’m so glad that His amazing grace sounds so sweet that saved a wretch like me! I was once lost, but now I’m found…blind! But now I see!!!   

This is Cee Jay, C-E-E-J-A-Y! and this is your Spiritual Sports Segment with a hip hop twist, for The Playoffs in the NBA on ceejaysports.com as I Sprinkle a Little Spiritually in YOUR Sports!!! Let’s Ride!!!



Western Conference Finals 
Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals lands us in the City of Roses as the Portland Trailblazers were looking for some amazing grace themselves as they were trying to avoid going down 0 – 3 against the Golden State Warriors! Both teams came out of the gate pretty much tit for tat and after the conclusion of the 1st frame, the Blazers led by two, but the 2nd period, the Blazers was a thorn in the Warriors side as they erupted for 37 points to go up by as much as 18 as the home crowd gave them the energy they needed to take an 13 point lead into the half 66- 53.

Draymond Green posted
his 3rd triple-double during
the 2019 playoffs
The home crowd that was raucous and provided a boost for the Blazers in the 1st half however, suddenly had crickets in their pockets in the 2nd because it was the Warriors who erupted in the 3rd period and went on a 22 – 6 run behind the stellar, sensational and spectacular, Alliteration, I Love It, play of Draymond Green who finished with his seventh post season triple-double and the most in Warriors post-season history with 20 points, game highs of 13 rebounds and 12 assists and threw in a game high of 4 steals for good measure as the Warriors took the lead at the end of the 3rd 82 – 79 as their wall of defense made sure it wasn’t Dame Time! The Blazers didn’t do themselves any favors at the free throw line as they missed 13 for a 60% conversion rate and Steph Curry scored at least 35 in five consecutive playoff games as he torched the Blazers with 36 points as the Warriors knock off the Blazers 110 – 99 to take a 3 – 0 series lead.

Iggy left the game with a lower
leg injury
For your In Game News, Warriors guard Andre Igoudala, who is averaging 10 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists a game during the playoffs, only played 17 minutes in the game as he experienced soreness in his left calf and will have an MRI later today and finally, the backcourt of the Warriors in Curry and Klay Thompson have outscored the Blazers backcourt in Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum by 55, 178 – 123. Ouch. And Paul Pierce said the backcourt was a wash. Yea…right.

Steph Curry was in the
kitchen with 37 points 
The Western Conference Finals kept churning last night on the hard-court in California as the Portland Trailblazers looked to bounce back from the Game 1 loss to the Golden State Warriors. The Blazers made their adjustments from Game 1 and came out Blazing as they were hitting on all cylinders as they took a 31 – 29 lead heading into the 2nd period. Speaking of the 2nd, the Blazers poured on more of the same as they did in the 1st as they eventually converted on 18 three’s for 46% and the Warriors only converted on 9 three’s for 31% as the Blazers went into the half up by 15, 65 - 50 which was assisted by converting 10 Warriors turnovers into 18 points. With the Warriors out rebounding the Blazers by 13 and fueled by 9 blocks for the game, that helped to breathe life into a Warriors 24 – 6 run in the 3rd as they outscored the Blazers 39 – 24 and by end of the 3rd, the game was tied 89 – 89. Fast forward to 4:20 left in the game with the Warriors down by 8, they went on a an experienced flurry that had Draymond Green’s name all over it, who finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 blocks and with a Andre Igoudala’s block of Damian Lillard’s three point attempt, that help seal the deal as the Warriors posted the their 2nd largest halftime comeback in the playoffs to notch the win 114 – 111 as Steph Curry was a Sensational Chef yet again with 37 net popping points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists as they take a 2 – 0 series lead.

Whoa.
