The NBA Playoffs are full of former Cats. The funny thing is, all of them played yesterday. James Young’s Celtics take on the Cavs at 3:00, but I doubt he will be getting too much PT. A rainy Sunday without the Cats might be rough, but they sure were smooth on Saturday.
Wizards 93 – Raptors 86
Coach Cal took Drake’s seats to watch John Wall and Zard Nation steal Game 1 in overtime on the road in Toronto. Wall didn’t have his best shooting day, going 5-18 from the field and missing a game-winner as time expired in regulation, but he flirted with a triple-double with 10 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds. Patrick Patterson had a decent day, getting 10 points and grabbing 5 boards for former Cat Dwane Casey. If you were wondering, Chuck Hayes did not play.
Bulls 103 – Bucks 91
My main man Nazr Muhammad didn’t get any PT, but his Bulls got the Dub.
Warriors 106 – Pelicans 99
Anthony Davis was pretty average for three quarters, until Anthony Davis decided to start being Anthony Davis. His 20 4th quarter points are a career-high in a quarter. He finished with 35 points, 7 boards, and 4 blocks. If you don’t know, now ya know. But if ya wanna know more about his awesome playoff debut, scroll down to the story a linked from USA Today.
Rockets 118 – Mavericks 108
The Real T. Jones had a REALLY good night for the Rockets, helping Houston win Round 1 of the Battle for Texas. In 34 minutes, Jones had 19 points, second only to James Harden’s 24. He earned many from the charity stripe, going 7-11, while scooping 9 rebounds and dishing out 6 assists. Rajon Rondo didn’t play up to par, only handing out 5 assists and failing to grab a rebound, areas he usually dominates during the playoffs. Rondo scored 15 points on 7-16 shooting.
