Game 5 Of The Eastern & Western Conference Semi's For May 7th Feat. The Raptors, The Nuggets & Worth Keeping!!

You thought I was worth keeping, so you cleaned me up inside! So I can be free, so I can be whole, so I can tell everyone I know!

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!!! It’s Go Time!!!

Kawhi Leonard with the
emphatic jam
A pair of Game 5’s were on the menu last night for the NBA Playoffs and in both games, it a little Louisiana Cajun flavor as two teams were cooking with some spices, but I digress! Let’s see what was cooking in the Eastern Conference Semi as the Philadelphia 76ers were looking to throw the Raptors of Toronto on the grill and take 3 – 2 lead. Both teams got off to a nice start as the Raptors lead by 1 after the 1st, but they turned up the heat and tossed in some hot sauce and outscored the 76er’s by 20 to take a 64 – 43 halftime lead. The 76er’s made it a game in the 3rd, but the pot was too big to climb out of coupled with 19 turnovers that led to 31 points for the Raptors as they set a franchise record for three pointers in a post season game with 16 and they went on to and literally spank the 76er’s 125 – 89 as six Raptors were in double figures as Pascal Siakim brought his A game with 25 points and 8 boards and a double-double by Kawhi Leonard with 21 points and 13 rebounds as the Raptors take a 3 – 2 series lead and will look to close out the series on Thursday.

Paul Milsap ate real
good against the Blazers
The Western Conference Semi’s kind of mirrored the East game as the Denver Nuggets were looking to turn up the heat on the Portland Trailblazers by taking a 3 – 2 series as Paul Milsap put on his experienced sous chef hat and cooked up 19 of his 24 points in the first half as the Nuggets lead 65 – 47. The Blazers tried lighting the grill but kept coming up short as their field goal percentage which was below 37% and rebounding almost mirrored the halftime score as the Nuggets out rebounded the Blazers 62 – 44. The Nuggets ate real good from to start to finish with the wire win as they bamboozled, branded and broke down, Alliteration, I Love It, the Blazers 124 – 98 as the Nuggets had 7 players in double figures as Nikola Jokic had 19 monster rebounds and 25 points for a double-double as they look shut down the Blazers restaurant for code violations on Thursday in the closeout game.

For your Quick NBA News & Notes, Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star Paul George underwent rotator cuff surgery to repair a partially torn tendon in his right shoulder and is expected to miss at least the start of preseason training camp and his running mate Russell Westbrook also had surgery to repair a torn ligament on one of his fingers on his left hand.
