The NBA Playoffs 2014 continue with four more games.And I honestly don't remember a first round of the playoffs being this crazy. Maybe it's reverse Stockholm syndrome as I come to associate with the beliefs of the teams with "actual winning cultures"? Good basketball is fun to watch. We hope to watch some good basketball today.
So, four games, all of them Game 4s of the series. In three of the four games the current home team has a chance to go up 3-1 (WAS, BKN, and POR). Which is frankly amazing, and shows how even these playoff pairings are. We're talking about the LOWER SEED being able to go up 3-1. As we saw from last night's game that didn't happen, but it could. The other game is with LAC @ GSW -- and there are no winners in this fight. We hate Flop-city and Mark Jackson.
Anyway . . . when and where can you watch these games?
Game 1: Chicago Bulls @ Washington Wizards (11:00 am MT, ABC) -- 2-1 WAS
Game 2: Los Angeles Clippers @ Golden State Warriors (1:30 pm MT, ABC -- 2-1 LAC
Game 3: Toronto Raptors @ Brooklyn Nets (5:00 pm MT, TNT) -- 2-1 BKN
Game 4: Houston Rockets @ Portland Trail Blazers (7:30 pm MT, TNT) -- 2-1 POR
Who is playing tonight? Carlos Boozer, Ronnie Brewer (Chicago); Deron Williams, Andrei Kirilenko (Brooklyn); and Wesley Matthews, Mo Williams, and Earl Watson (Portland).
