NBA:

Toronto Raptors defeat Milwaukee Bucks 92-89: The Raptors eliminated the Bucks in one of the craziest playoff games this season. After falling behind by 25 points, the Bucks went on a furious rally to take the lead with a few minutes remaining. The crowd was electric, and the Raptors looked like they were having another postseason collapse. Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a game-high 34 points in 47 minutes. Both he and Khris Middleton (who was battling the flu) looked exhausted by the end of the game. The Bucks missed nine free throws in the fourth quarter, which was detrimental to their comeback attempt. Antetokounmpo had the ball with less than ten seconds left and down three points, but decided to make a dunk instead of attempting a potential game-tying three. That ended up being costly because the Bucks didn’t get another chance to tie the game. It’s hard to blame Antetokounmpo because he was the main reason that they made the comeback in the first place. With a healthy Jabari Parker next season (fingers crossed), the Bucks will be a championship contender. The Raptors will need to make drastic improvements in the second round if they want to defeat the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers.

San Antonio Spurs defeat Memphis Grizzlies 103-96: The Spurs eliminated the Grizzlies to advance to the second round of the playoffs. After the first five games of the series were won by the home team, the road team finally won a game in this series. Kawhi Leonard was the best player in all six games of this series. Although he won’t be the league’s MVP, he has been the most dominant player in the playoffs. With his clutch shooting and unparalleled defense, he has an argument for being the best player in the NBA. Leonard scored a game-high 29 points, and it was possibly his worst game of the series. The Grizzlies put forth a phenomenal effort, but came up just short of pushing the series to a seventh game. This may have been a different series with a healthy Tony Allen, but the Grizzlies didn’t let that become an excuse. Mike Conley finally got some notoriety, which is long overdue. The Spurs will face the Houston Rockets in the second round of the playoffs.
