On Headline Sports with Tony R:
#1 Golden State Warriors who lead the Western Conference playoffs by a commanding 3-0 lead head into game four tonight in Dallas there seems to be a confidence that the Warriors will finish off the Dallas Mavericks tonight but over confidence could be a dangerous thing.
#2 As in past post season games the Warriors relied on Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green but they’ve been getting strong support from players like Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole and Otto Porter Jr.
#3 Turning to the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs the Boston Celtics who were down 2-1 came back on Monday night and evened up the series against the Miami Heat with a 102-82 win.
#4 It was a lopsided game 4 of sorts as the Celtics commanded a 29-11 lead after the first quarter and took a 57-33 lead into half time. The Heat came out with a 49-45 second half effort but just came up 20 points short none the less.
#5 It’s back to Miami on Wednesday night for game 5 and it’s been a series that’s been that kind of a series that’s been back and forth the Celtics were able to keep the Heat’s Jimmy Butler down to just six points in game 4 but in Miami Butler has lead Miami in scoring consistently it could be a series changer Wednesday night.
