Uncle Drew made his presence felt!!
The NBA Playoffs were back in full effect last night as all three teams were on the prowl in search of the commanding 2 – 0 series lead as the Boston Celtics and the Indiana Pacers each scored more points than in Game 1. Both teams played much better than the first game as the Celtics led at half-time by 2. But they came out flat in the 3rd period and the Pacers went up by 11 at end of that frame, but Uncle Drew aka Kyrie Irving scored 8 straight points as the C’s went on a 16 – 0 run to close out the game 99 – 91 as the aforementioned Irving laced them up with 37 points and Jason Tatum chipped in 26 and the Celtics go up 2 – 0 in the series.

Giannis doing Giannis stuff
The second game of the night featured the Milwaukee Bucks pitted against the Detroit Pistons as the Pistons, for the most part, actually made the game a little more competitive than the first as they are still without their leading scorer in Blake Griffin. But the third period proved too much for the Pistons as Giannis Antetokoumpo, Kris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe put up 26, 24 and 27 respectively as the Bucks go up 2 – 0 in the series as they just drained the fluid out of the Pistons 120 – 99.

James Harden was magical with
the triple double 
The last game of the night takes us to H-Town as the Utah Jazz looked to put up a fight against the Houston Rockets and avoid going down 0 – 2 in the series, but since the Jazz only shot 39% from the field and 21% from deep, that wouldn’t help their cause as the Rockets smothered, smoked and smashed, Alliteration, I Love It, the Jazz 118 – 98 as MVP candidate James Harden notched a triple-double in only 33 minutes of play with 33 points, 13 boards and 10 assists as the Rockets now head to Utah with a 2 – 0 series lead.
