Loving Basketball: #1 Team “Spida” Mitchell on fire!

It’s the kind of game worth the money to watch if I were in Utah for Game 1 of the Round 2 Western Conference Playoff between #1 Utah Jazz and #4 LA Clippers.

The overall 2020-21 NBA leader defended their title and proved that they rightly earned the #1 position.

Starters and benchers of both Teams contributed amazingly. At the end of the night, Leader Spida Mitchell stepped up and carried his team to a 3-point lead victory, with Rudy Gobert’s last minute rejection of what could have been a tying-shot. It was thrilling four quarters.

New Jazz co-owner Dwayne Wade (another of my fave players, now former), with spouse Gabby Union, were there to cheer the Team.

It’s sure going to be an exciting series. Looking forward to Clippers’ fierce comeback on Thursday. Make sure you watch it.

Loving Basketball: The Big Three are Nasty!

Excusez-moi, monsieurs! Qu’est-ce qui se passe?

What I envisioned to be a game of the titans is turning out to be an embarrassing game of mismatch to watch. Pardon me, but it appears that Giannis and Team Milwaukee are proving to be no match for Brooklyn Nets’ Big Three of Kevin Durant (KD), Kyrie Irving (KI), and James Hardin (JH); Big Two for Games 1 and 2 since Harden exited at the onset of the series. I can only imagine if he was playing.

The Nets rout Bucks, without resistance, in the second game leading by almost 40-points. Game 1 was sort of a sampler. I had thought that Bucks will resist and show up for Game 2. But was I wrong? Glad that I didn’t bet on it because I could have lost money big time.

I love to watch a game of equals and I had thought that there wasn’t much difference in NBA’s 2020-21 #2 Team Durant/Brooklyn Nets and #3 Team Giannis/Milwaukee Bucks. But watching Games 1 and 2 of Round 2 of the Playoffs, and particularly Game 2, proved that the difference and disparity goes beyond the numbers and thus me wrong.

I’ve always loved Kevin Durant (KD). The boy’s got style on the court. He’s so slick and plays the game with such unbelievable ease. So when he was acquired by Golden State Warriors (my favorite Team), I was elated. And he proved his worth earning the back-to-back MVPs. KD’s on-court countenance also changed compared to his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Too bad that we (GSW/fans) couldn’t keep him longer.

Anyhow, KD seems to be on a roll for a championship as it appears that this might be a sweep if Milwaukee is unable to bring their A+ game on Thursday and fight back. I hope they will. In basketball nothing is impossible as we saw with the Dallas Mavericks and LA Clippers.

On edge waiting for this duo’s Game Three … till then

Love and Peace.
