Sports are very interesting, from upsets to blowouts anything can happen. From flagrant fouls to pass interferences the sporting world is filled with exciting and amazing things. Let's see what the outcome of the NBA season will be....
The NBA will go haywire for the rest of the season. To start off with the Celtics will lose 20 of their remaining games and drop down to the 4 seed in the East (after the season Doc Rivers is fired). Besides for this the outcome of the season is pretty much expeacted. Here are the playoff seeds:
1. Pistons 1. Hornets
2. Magic 2. Lakers
3. Raptors 3. Jazz
4. Celtics 4. Suns
5. Wizards 5. Nuggets
6. Cavs 6. Mavs
7. Nets 7. Blazers
8. Hawks 8. Rockets
To start the playoffs off with a bang the 8-seeded Rockets beat the Hornets in 7 games. Also the Blazers beat the Lakers in 6. Here were the teams left after the round 1 matchups:
1. Pistons 3. Jazz
3. Raptors 4. Suns
5. Wizards 7. Blazers
7. Nets 8. Rockets
After this, the playoffs took another sharp turn with the 5 seeded Wizards beating the Pistons in round 2. Also, the Rockets playoff luck ended with a 5 game series loss to the Suns. However the Blazers kept on rolling to beat the Jazz in 7 games. The Raptors also came back from down 3-1 in the series with the Nets to win 4-3. The teams left standing after this were the Wizards, the Raptors, the Blazers, and the Suns. In the conference finals in the West the Suns were feeling quite fine with themselves after taking a 2-0 lead in the series. They might actually win this season! However then the Cinderella team from Portland came back to win both games at home. The Suns took game 5 with a 113-98 blowout win. However in the 4th quarter of that game Steve Nash went down with a sprained ankle that became serious. Nash would miss the rest of the series because of his ankle. Well now the series was 3-2 with the Suns in the lead but who knows what would happen without Nash. The Suns decided to try and play Leandro Barbosa at PG but apparently that didn't work out well as the Blazers scorched the Suns 97-91 in game 6. With the series tied at 3 apiece the Suns went into overdrive knowing that this might be their last time to get to the championship. At halftime the Suns led 51-49, it was still close. At the end of the third the Suns still led 76-73, still close. But the Blazers were not dead yet. They started the 4th with a 10-2 run to put them up by 4. With 1 minute left in the game though the Blazers held onto a slim lead of 103-101. Then Stoudamire dunked the ball with 43 seconds to go. The Blazers missed their next shot and the Suns got it back with 28 seconds left. They ran out most of the time but then Shawn Marion hit a 20-footer with 7 seconds left. The Blazers called for time. They threw it in to Lamarcus Aldridge about 10 feet from the basket. However he was quickly double-teamed. The clock was still ticking down though, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, but then Aldridge sees a sprinting Brandon Roy get open for 3. Aldridge whips him a pass. Roy grabs it with 2 seconds left. He sees a defender charging at him but it won't matter. He shoots a fade-a-way 3. *EHHHHHHHHHHHH* The Buzzer sounds off in the distance but no one cares. Everyone is watching the ball. It hits the rim, bounces up, hits it again. This time it hits an odd angle so the ball begins rolling around the rim. It begins to lose speed as it rolls. Suddenly it stops! Which way will it fall? In or out?
