Kawhi was simply unstoppable
The NBA witnessed the start of one series and the end of another as two playoff games tipped off last night featuring the Toronto Raptors hosting the Philadelphia 76er’s. The Raptors didn’t play like they were pre-historic as they ran out of the gate firing on all cylinders especially Kawhi Leonard, as he played outside of his mind and was the B.D.O.C., the Big Dinosaur On Campus and the 76er’s did not have an solution for him. Leonard finished with a career playoff high of 45 points and grabbed 11 boards and his running mate in Pascal Siakim, netted 29 as they edged the 76er’s 108 – 95 as the Raptors secured Game 1 in the Eastern Conference semi-final.

Jamal Murray came up BIG TIME for his squad
Let’s jet off to the Mile High City, as the 133rd Game 7 in the history of the NBA Playoffs took to the hard-court as the Denver Nuggets were looking to end a ten year series winning playoff drought, whew that’s a mouth full as they faced off against the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs didn’t start the game like it was a win or go home situation as they only scored 13 points in the 1st period and shot 10 – 45 from the field for 22% and 1 – 10 from the three point arc for 10%....OUCHBut in spite of the woeful 1st half, the Spurs battled back and outscored the Nuggets by 9 in the 2nd half, but with Jamal Murray scoring 16 of his 23 points in the 2nd half and Nikola Jokic notching a triple-double in a Game 7 for the first time since LeBron James accomplished the feat back in 2016, of 21 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists, the Nuggets hold on for the victory 96 – 80 to win the series and the right to match up against the Portland Trailblazers in the Western Conference semi-final on Monday night.

For your NBA Quick News & Notes, after spraining their ankles in the series clinching game against the LA Clippers, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors, are both listed as questionable for Game 1 against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference semi-final later today.
