NBA Playoff Recap: May 4th, 2010

3rd-seed Atlanta Hawks vs. 2nd-seed Orlando Magic (71-114)

The Atlanta Hawks and the Orlando Magic were a match during the 1st Quarter, but in the 2nd the Hawks got a bit rusty as Dwight Howard started his “Superman Night” during the 2nd. He scored 21 points, grabbing 12 rebounds, and swatting 5 shots. Vince Carter added 20 points and 3 assist. The Atlanta HawksJosh Smith scored 14 points to lead his team while Zaza Pachulia scored 12 points. The Hawks shot very cold in the game. In the end, the Magic were able to finish with a 46 point-victory in the series-opener. We hope this series gets more interesting in the next few games. We would like to give CONDOLENCES to the HAWKS.

5th-seed Utah Jazz vs. 1st-seed Los Angeles Lakers (103-111)

A Game 2 for the Los Angeles Lakers, they played great from start to finish. Kobe Bryant scored 30 points and had 8 assists and Pau Gasol had 22 points while grabbing 15 rebounds. If it wasn’t for Utah Jazz Forward Paul Millsap, the Jazz would not be this close to the lead. Paul scored 26 points and snatching 11 rebounds, 8 of which were offensive boards. Carlos Boozer and CJ Miles had 20 points apiece. There is something I have to point out, it is the rebounding ratio. The Lakers grabbed 58 rebounds to the Utah Jazz‘s 40 rebounds. Lakers win big time. Game 3 is on Saturday.

1 game tomorrow, readers.
