Blake Griffin Likely To Miss First Round of Playoffs

Blake Griffin was battling through a knee injury throughout the end of the regular season and now it looks to have caught up with him.

Griffin missed Game 1 of the Pistons playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks tonight and it has now been announced that he may not return at all.

Griffin had an amazing season with the Pistons in which he averaged a career high 24.5 points per game. He was an All-Star for the first time in four seasons and was the main reason that Detroit made the playoffs.

Without him, the Pistons had no hope against the Bucks, as they got absolutely dismantled in Game 1 of their playoff series.

Without Griffin on the court, the Pistons are probably heading towards a quick first round exit.

The Houston Rockets jumped out to an early 20-point lead in the first quarter of tonight’s game, which was enough to bury the Utah Jazz.

Houston scored 39 points in the quarter, as they utterly dominated the Jazz.

James Harden was cooking early on in the game, finishing the first half with numbers that would have been great had they been for the whole game.

Harden ended up finishing the game with a triple-double, as the Rockets cruised to a 20-point victory.

The Rockets are now just two wins away from the Western Conference Semifinals, where they will likely face the Golden State Warriors.

The Milwaukee Bucks just keep on rolling in the playoffs, as Giannis Antetokounmpo led his team to another victory tonight.

Along with the great play from the Greek Freak, the Bucks also got some quality production from Pat Connaughton off the bench.

While the Detroit Pistons lost their second game of the series against the Bucks, at least they made this one a little respectable.

Sure they ultimately lost by 21 points, but it was a much better defeat than the 35-point loss they suffered in Game 1.

The way this series looks to be heading, the Bucks likely won’t have to return home to close it out as they play their next two games in Detroit.

Kyrie Irving Scores 37 to Hold Off Pacers to Win Game 2

The Boston Celtics came real close to losing their home-court advantage tonight, as the Indiana Pacers put up a valiant effort.

Through three quarters, the Pacers were up 79-68 and looked to be in control of the game. Then came the fourth quarter.

Boston outscored the Pacers by 19 points in the game’s final frame, allowing the Celtics to come away with their second victory of the series.

Jayson Tatum and Kyrie Irving led the charge for the Celtics in the fourth quarter, combining to score 19 of the Celtics 31 points.

While it was Tatum helping Irving in the fourth, for a majority of the game it was Irving that was carrying the Celtics offensively.

As a crazy as it might sound with players like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kawhi Leonard in the conference, there is no Eastern Conference player that I would rather have in the playoffs than Kyrie.

Irving is the best pure scorer that the East has to offer, which gives the Celtics a great chance to make a deep playoff run.
