Giannis carried the Bucks to
a Game 3 win
As Steve Harvey from Family Feud would say, “we got a good one today folks!” The NBA Playoffs was on and popping last night with two games on tap as we kick it off in the Eastern Conference Semifinal with Game 3 as the Milwaukee Bucks aka Fear The Deer faced off against the Boston Celtics as the C’s held their own in the first half as they had a one point lead. The Celtics faltered in the 3rd as they were outscored 40 – 31 and their bench was outscored overall by the Bucks bench 42 – 16 with 21 of those points coming from George Hill. With a total of 59 foul calls for the game and Giannis Antetokounmpo getting to the charity stripe 22 times, helped the Bucks get past the Celtics 123 – 116 as the Greek Freek by way Greece by way Nigeria netted a double-double with 32 deer sized points and 13 boards to go along with 8 assists as the Bucks take a 2 – 1 series lead.

CJ was stellar in OT thriller!
Traveling over to the City of Roses as we had another pivotal Game 3 as the Portland Trailblazers battled against the Denver Nuggets and as Moses Malone said in 1983 Fo, Fo, Fo! The game was one for the ages as it took four overtimes and was the second quadruple overtime playoff game in the NBA since 1953 when the Celtics played the Syracuse Nationals! After four frames the game had to go further to get the final, Alliteration, I Love It! Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic posted a triple double in the overtime thriller with 33 points, 18 Big Boy rebounds and 14 dimes as he played 65 minutes, the most since the aforementioned game in 1953. Whew! Saying that makes me want a hit of the oxygen tank! Ha! Jokic went 1 of 2 from the line which would have tied the game in the 4th overtime. CJ McCollum scored 28 points in the 4th quarter and overtimes for a total of 41 points and Rodney Hood netted the go ahead three pointer to seal the deal 140 – 137 as the Blazers take the 2 – 1 series lead.

Monty Williams: Suns head coach
For your Quick NBA News & Notes, the Phoenix Suns have hired Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Monty Williams, as their next head coach and after an elbow shot to Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry’s groin buddies in Game 3, 76er’s guard Ben Simmons was fined $20,000 and assessed a flagrant foul 1.
