So here I am writing postgame thoughts for the Playoffs. Let’s see how long I can keep this up.
Speaking of keeping things up, neither team did very well today. The game just ended 82-81 Phi, playing at Boston. Announcer CWebb kept saying it was an ugly game and that’s exactly right, with fg% just above 40% for both (40.8% Phi, 41.8% Bos). That’s enough bricks to make a new stadium. Bos out – passed Phi 23 to 17, but fouled a lot more at 22 to 13.
Key players today include Igoudala (13pts) as expected for Phi, including Evan Turner (1opts), Lavoy Allen (10pts.) and most notable, Jrue Holiday (18pts). For most of the 1st half only Jrue was in double figures for both teams, outplaying even the amazing Rondo, who had a below par 8 pt., 2 assist game today, a far cry from his previous triple doubles.
