After several series shifting, Alliteration, I Love It, games in the NBA Playoffs over the weekend including one sweep, there was only two games that played out on the hard court last night in which both teams had a chance to sweep!

Giannis scored a career postseason
high of 41 points 
In the first game, the Detroit Pistons battled against the Milwaukee Bucks as they tried to avoid the series sweep as Blake Griffin literally was playing on one leg and gave his all to secure the win. The Pistons did put up a fight as they held onto a 62 – 56 lead at the half. But they just could not hold on in the 3rd and 4th periods, as I mentioned in previous shows, they just didn’t have enough fire power and coupled with the fact the Bucks went to the charity stripe 41 times to the Pistons 12 times, well that’s a recipe for a loss. With that said the Bucks simply overwhelmed the Pistons 127 – 104 as Giannis Antetokoumpo was like the GAP Band, simply OUTSTANDING with a playoff career high of 41 points as the Bucks secured the sweep and will face off against the Boston Celtics.

Donovan Mitchell came alive
in the 4th
The second game of the night also had sweep ramifications as the Utah Jazz was playing for their playoff lives against the Houston Rockets for the right to continue reading the notes on their sheet music! The Jazz came out blowing their horns like they were marching around Jericho fueled by Rick Rubio and Jae Crowder as they combined for 25 points to give the Jazz the 53 – 47 lead at halftime. The Rockets made a run in the 3rd but then in 4th, second year guard Donovan Mitchell Showed was like Dottie Peoples hit song, he Up & Showed Out after a sluggish start and scored 19 of his 31 in said frame to give the Jazz reservations at the Four Seasons in Houston on Wednesday night with the 107 – 91 dismantling, demolishing and devastating defeat, Alliteration, I Love It, over the Rockets as now lead the series 3 – 1.

Luke facing sex assault lawsuit
