Recap of NBA Playoff Games From Friday, April 19th Featuring Scores, Stats & An Uplifting Word!

Perfect submission, all is at rest. I in my Savior am happy and blessed! Watching and waiting, looking above, filled with His goodness, lost in His love! This is my story and this is my song!

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 as I Sprinkle a Little Spiritually in YOUR Sports!!! Come Get With It!!!

Pascal had a career night!!!
Ohhhhhweeeeee! Another round of game threes were on the hard-court as the playoff rolls on! My home city Orlando Magic played their first home playoff game since 2012 as they came back with the split against the Toronto Raptors as the Raptors only led by 3 at halftime. But in the 3rd period, the Raptors extended that lead, but the Magic wouldn’t disappear as they kept it close, but fell short and took the L 98 – 95 as Pascal Siakim had a career night with a double-double of 30 net popping points and 11 boards and the Raptors take a 2 – 1 series lead.
Kyrie Irving leading his C's!

The Indiana Pacers were at home against the Boston Celtics as they were looking to capitalize on some home cooking and avoid going in the 0 – 3 hole for the series and for the most part, they were headed in the right direction as they held a sliiiiim 61 – 59 halftime lead. But the 3rd period yet again, got in their way as the Pacers only scored 12 points and the C’s turned up the defensive pressure. After that, the Celtic’s would not relinquish the lead as Kyrie Irving notched a double-double with 19 points and 10 assists as the Celtics scored the 104 – 96 win to take a no turning back 3 – 0 series lead.

Westbrook finally showed up!!!
The last game of the night witnessed the Oklahoma City Thunder trying to notch their first win of the series against the Portland Trailblazers, as they too were headed in the right direction as  they went on a 10 – 1 run to close out the 2nd period to lead by 10 at halftime. While the 3rd period got in the Pacers way, it surely did not get in the Trailblazers way as they had the nets screaming uncle by dropping 43 points and would eventually tie the game. But the Thunder reestablished themselves in the 4th and never looked back as they shot 52% from three, which was far better than the 16% in Games 1 & 2 as they claimed the 120 – 108 victory as Russell Westbrook rocked the baby with 33 points and 11 assists as they now are 1 – 2 in the series.
