The Milwaukee Bucks were the best team in the NBA throughout the regular season and looked every bit as dominant in their postseason debut.
The Bucks completely dismantled the Detroit Pistons, who were playing without their best player in Blake Griffin.
Giannis Antetokounmpo played great when he was on the floor, but only needed to play 23 minutes of action in the blowout victory.
As long as Griffin remains sidelined, there is almost no point in even playing these games, as the Bucks are set to run away with this series.
Rockets Win Game 3 Despite Awful Shooting Night From James Harden
James Harden was simply terrible through the first three quarters of tonight’s Game 3 matchup against the Utah Jazz.
Harden did not make a single field goal as his team did all they could to stay in the game as they watched him short circuit shooting the ball.
Apparently Harden did not even know how bad he was playing. Or at least he said as much after the game.
Having a short memory is key for any great player though. And Harden was able to get back to playing like himself in the fourth quarter, as he propelled his team to the win.
Donovan Mitchell put together a valiant effort in the loss for the Jazz. Mitchell scored 21 first half points as Utah took a lead into the second half.
Mitchell was unable to sustain that performance for the entire game though and ended up missing a wide open shot that would have tied things up late.
After failing to win that game, the Jazz are just one game away from elimination as they fall down 3-0 to the Rockets.
Philadelphia 76ers Come Away with Victory After Contentious Game 4
So far in the NBA Playoffs, there has not been any series more compelling then the one between the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers.
The two teams have been going at each other both on and off the court and their games have been coming down to the wire more times than not.
While it has been a tough-fought series, it has ultimately gone the Sixers way, as they are now up 3-1 after another close victory today.
This game really did go back and forth, with each team holding a lead within the last minute of the contest.
In the end, it was Mike Scott that became the hero for the Sixers, after making the game-winning three with his team down by a point late.
While Scott made the biggest play of the night, it was Joel Embiid that carried the Sixers throughout the game. He ended up finishing with a team-leading 31 points and 16 rebounds.
With Embiid playing at such a high level, the Sixers look to be legitimate title-contenders coming out of the Eastern Conference.
Bucks Take Game 3 Over the Pistons Despite the Return of Blake Griffin
The Detroit Pistons were finally at full strength for the first time all playoffs, as they got their All-Star back for Game 3 today.
Despite the return of Blake Griffin, the Pistons continued to look helpless against the Milwaukee Bucks, as they dropped their third-straight game to the No. 1 seed.
Now the Bucks are in complete control of this series and will look to close it out on Monday, when they play Game 4 in Detroit.
Considering the fact that the Bucks have won the first three games of this series by a whooping 72 points, it is hard to give the Pistons any chance to get back in this series.
