NBA Eastern Conference Semifinal Feat. Scores, News, Special Birthday Shout Out & An Encouraging Word! May 16, 2017: Vol. II, 20th Edition

Lied on, many times I've been lied on. Burdens, I had to bare so many burdens; dark days and disappointments, I've had my share of them both! But through it all I've made it through, another day's journey because God kept me here!

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening! Whichever time of day you find your ears listening to the sound that is flowing from your speakers! Welcome back to CeeJay’s Spiritual Sports Segment NBA Edition for the playoffs on ceejaysports.com where I Sprinkle a Little Spiritually in your Sports! I’m Cee Jay, C-E-E-J-A-Y! your uncle, your next door neighbor looking out for ya and your shoulder, when you need to lean! Without further delay, It’s Game Time!!!

Kelly Olynyk showed up
to play!!
The first Game 7 of these NBA Playoffs raged on last night as the home team Boston Celtics were trying to claim victory and advanced, but so was the Washington Wizards. The 1st and 2nd period was a see-saw as the Celtics outscored the Wizards in the 1st, but Wizards held their weight on that see-saw and lead the charge in the 2nd frame and took a 2 point lead into halftime. But after halftime, the C’s went on a 13 – 3 run in the 3rd period and by the opening minutes of the 4th, the run grew to 22 – 5. But the Wiz’s went on a run themselves and closed the gap to 6 points, but they couldn’t contain the Big Shot Ability of Kelly Olynyk as he made shot after shot after shot after shot as he scored his playoff career high of 26 points and his point guard, Isaiah Thomas notched a double-double with 26 points and 12 dimes as the Celtics sent the Wizards packing 115 – 105 as they advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals to face off against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Wizards out rebounded the Celtics 43 – 31, but the biggest difference came from the bench as the Celtics dominated the Wizards bench 48 – 5. Ouch.

Goodyear and the Cavaliers
partner together
For your Quick News & Notes, Kahwi Leonard, the San Antonio Spurs star, who re-injured his left ankle twice in Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors, had a MRI that revealed no structural damage and has officially been ruled out for tonight’s Game 2 tonight, Andre Igoudala’s MRI on his sore left know also revealed no structural damage but continues to have soreness and is questionable for tonight’s game and finally, tire manufacturer Goodyear, who are based in Akron, OH will have their Wingfoot logo displayed on the uniform of the Cleveland Cavaliers starting next season. According to Eric Smallwood of Apex Marketing Group, the value of deal for Goodyear being in clear view on TV, could be from $7 - $10 million dollars and with other factors, such as video games, trading cards and social media, those numbers could swell to $30 million dollars.
