Raptors/Heat preview

Updated playoff brackets! 1st to 16 wins it all!


Finally, the last semifinal is set & it’s for the Eastern Conference! So far in the other semifinals, we saw the Cavs overcome an 8 day lay-off & grind out  a home win vs Atlanta, the Warriors still on their mojo even w/o Steph as they held served vs the Blazers, & the Thunder & Spurs are knotted up at 1-1, thanks to the wildest 13 seconds I ever seen in my life! Dion Waiters straight got away w/ a push off! Never mind that, let’s break down the remaining semifinals.

Eastern Conference

2) Toronto vs 4) Miami- For the 1st time since 2001, the Raptors got out the 1st round. However in game 7, it looked like they want to give the game away as they blew a 16 point lead & both Kyle Lowery & DeMar DeRozan were struggling w/ their shots. However, they were getting key contributions for individuals like DeMarre Carroll, Corey Joseph, UCLA’s own Norman Powell, & Jonas Valanciunas. For the Heat, I thought they were left for dead after being down 3-2 to Charlotte after winning the 1st 2 games in South Beach. However, in the game to save their season, Dwayne Wade put the team on his back w/ some clutch shots in the 4th & the deciding game, their experience just put the smash down on them. The Heat are facing a lithe situation involving Chris Bosh. He hasn’t played a game since the all-star break after suffering another blood clot incident. He was sidelined for the same thing last yr. He wants to play, but the Heat organization won’t let him, fearing another incident could be catastrophic. He says he feels fine & may get involved w/ the players union to seek justice. Bad timing & I hope this isn’t a distraction to this series. Fun part about this series is that Drake probably be in both the 6 & South Beach for these games (congrats on Views by the way). I like the Heat in 6 games because I don’t trust both Lowery & DeRozan if both their shots aren’t falling.

That’s my time for this blog! Happy birthday shootouts this week to Peter Antunez, my girl DJ Crystal Ellis, Deziree Juarez, my poke war buddy Veronica Madrid, Ilsie Guerrero, Vivan Garcia, my beautiful friend Lianna Ponce, Aurelio Vela, the homie Sammy Sam, Yvonne Gonzalez, Paulita Ram, & my girl Regina Cortez aka DJ Vixen. It’s also Cinco De Mayo weekend as well as Mother’s Day weekend, so happy mother’s day outta to all the mothers out there especially my mom Shannon! My thoughts also on Canelo vs Khan, it’s tough to choice. If Khan wins, that messes up the payday for Canelo/GGG! That’s all I have to say! Catch up w/ ya’ll when we starting discussing conference finals!! Peace!!
