James Young and the Celtics: Swept
Patrick Patterson and the Raptors: Eliminated
Anthony Davis and the Pelicans: Finished
The stay of former Cats in the NBA playoffs appears to be short lived as Rondo looks to be joining the above list later tonight. Rondo’s days in Dallas are over as the former all-star has yet to log a minute since game 2 and Houston looks to end the series at home. The Mavericks are refusing to go gently into that good night and the game is a 56-50 advantage for Houston at the the half.
Terrence Jones has been struggling so far tonight. He’s 1-2 in his 11 minutes of play but has already racked up 3 fouls to only one rebound. Maybe he can turn things around in the second half for his fourth double digit scoring night of the series. Those 3 fouls will keep him limited, especially when he has to body up Dirk while worrying about any contact.
As for the rest of the Cats, John Wall and the Wizards should be well-rested for the winner of Brooklyn/Atlanta. That series is looking like it could easily go to seven and provide a worn out team for the Zards to take advantage of. The Hawks owned Washington in the regular season but the loss of Sefolosha is clearing having some toll on Atl. With Love out for the Cavs, the road to the finals is there for the Wizard’s taking.
The second half continues on TNT. Go former Cats!
