Basketball

There is a lot of pressure and stress on any team in the NBA playoffs. For one player, the playoffs were a particularly hard time. Isaiah Thomas (of the Celtics) received news that his sister sadly died in a car accident the day before the Celtics played the Chicago Bulls in Game 1 of their Best of 7 series. No one asked or expected Isaiah Thomas to play in Game 1 and 2, but he still did. Now, our hometown Wizards are in a series between the Celtics. The best team in the NBA (the Warriors) faced the Portland Trail Blazers in Round 1 in the playoffs. The Warriors already had won their first game against the Trail Blazers (121-109). The end result was a loss to the Warriors, with a final score of 128-103 in game 4. On April 23, the Indiana Pacers got swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was a close game, but the Cavs were still able to come out with win. The final score was 106-102.

The latest: the Warriors beat the Jazz in game one of their series, 106-94. Let’s see if the Jazz can win game two on May 4!

Soccer
