John Wall Vs The Atlanta Hawks
Last night the Hawks finished off the Nets with a beatdown in Brooklyn to advance to the East Semis. Their reward? A one day turnaround to take on John Wall and the Wizards. Washington went 1-3 against the Hawks in the regular season but won their last meeting on April 12, 108-99. They also looked really sharp in dismantling the Raptors in the opening round sweep. Should be a very entertaining series that tips off tomorrow at noon.
Nazr Mohammed Vs The Cleveland Cavaliers
The Bulls dismantled the Bucks in Game 6, 120-66 and Nazr got some playing time as a result. In 7 minutes the big man scored 2 points, grabbed a rebound, and blocked a shot. Now the Bulls will head to Cleveland to take on the depleted Cavs. JR Smith is suspended two games for an elbow. Kevin Love is done for the year due to s shoulder injury. You can’t count out a team with Lebron James and Kyrie Irving but the Bulls have a better shot to advance now than they did a week ago.
Terrence Jones Vs ???
The Rockets are still waiting for their next opponent as Game 7 between the Clippers and Spurs is tonight at 8. I would imagine that Houston would prefer to see LA rather than the defending champions but that is just me. Round two of the playoffs begins tomorrow. Only 3 guys remain but they all could reach the conference finals.
