Game 1 – Bullets 2, Sixers 0

  Bullets won; Sixers no showed.

Game 2 – Celtics 57, Lakers 30

  The Purple struggled badly in the second, only able to score one point, to the Celts 14, and we believe they just couldn’t recover from that deficit. Best part was they didn’t quit – as always. On the other side, the Celtics high-powered offense of three was highlighted by 27 from “MVP candidate” O. Ruan, 16 from J. Pomare and an additional 15 from T. Melton. That covered all their scoring in the game.

Game 1 – Celtics 70, Kings 35

  The Emerald went deep in this game, “literally” – thanks to one player hitting 10 three-pointers in the game. The Celts’ T. Melton had a weekend high of 37, 30 via the Deep Ball, five of them in the fourth quarter, which was the final score result of 15. J. Pomare also helped with the Win by dropping 12 of his own. The Kings had disciplinary issues and played an awful third quarter but tried to hang tough throughout. It was the Defense that couldn’t stop the Dagger three balls; that truly killed it for them. “MVP candidate” B. McMahon did have a nice game with 21, and Z. Pierre (10) rounded out the double-digit scoring. The Green go into the Playoffs as winners of seven straight and play these Kings again – this Weekend in Round 1.

Game 2 – Lakers 2, Sixers 0

  Not the best way to finish your season. But the Defending Champs became the first team Ever to forfeit eight times in one season, as well as their final six of the year. #BetterDaysAhead
