Eric Gordon rises up among the enemies
as the Rockets advanced
The NBA Playoffs rolled on last night with only two games on tap, but both of the those games were potential close out games as the Houston Rockets were looking to stop the music on the Utah Jazz as they topped off the 1st period knotted up at 20. But Donovan Mitchell got off to a rough start and finished 4 – 22 from the field and laid an egg out of 9 attempts from the three point arc and despite his shooting woes and the teams overall shooting percentage at 37, the Jazz still had a fighting chance. But the Rockets kept the pace and wouldn’t let the Jazz go on a run as the Rockets were able to do just enough to secure the win 100 – 93 with 26 hard earned points from James Harden and Clint Capella notched a double-double with 15 points and 17 boards as the Rockets advanced to their third straight Western Conference semi-final and await and the winner of the Clippers/Warriors series.

Durant's 45 wasn't
enough to beat the Clips
Speaking of the Clippers/Warriors series, we head out to California as the Clippers were looking to stave off elimination by the Warriors as that was gonna be a tall task since the Warriors torched the Clippers for 41 points in the 1st period, the third time they scored 40 during this series. But Lou Williams, who finished with 33 points and 10 assists, stated they had a mix of arrogance and hard work and as they the 2nd period for separation. But for the Warriors, who got 45 career playoff points from Kevin Durant, produced some defensive miscues and had a lack of offensive focus, couldn’t close the gap and yet again, the Clippers S-H-O-C-K-E-D the crowd at Oracle and snuck past the Warriors 129 – 121 to force a Game 6 on Friday night.

For your NBA Quick News & Notes, Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin, who missed some games during the 76er’s series due to his troublesome left knee, underwent arthroscopic surgery, but he will be ready for the start of training camp.
