Byrdbored 2015 replay – West round #1

The Byrdbored 2015 replay continued with the Western Conference Playoffs Round #1….

Golden State  Warriors (4-0) over Oklahoma City Thunder

Without Kevin Durant the Thunder just didn’t have enough to beat Golden State.  The Warriors dominated from the start with an average win of 114-93 against the Thunder.  Klay Thompson averaged 29.2 points per game in the series.

Houston Rockets (4-2) over Dallas Mavericks

The first four games finished with the series all even at (2-2).  However, in game #5, the Rockets held off Dallas, 127-120, thanks to Trevor Ariza’s 34 points and 7 rebounds along with James Harden’s 33 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds.  Josh Smith chipped in with 22 points and 10 boards to take a (3-2) lead going to Dallas. In game #6, The Beard took over with 34 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in a 114-106 clincher for Houston.

Los Angeles Clippers (4-3) over Memphis Grizzlies

Memphis would shock the Clippers taking three of the first four games. In game #4, Courtney Lee scored 21 points, while Jeff Green had 20 in a Grizzlies win to take a commanding lead in the series.  However, the Clippers would fight back to win the final three games (ironic in reverse don’t you think?).  In game #7, Chris Paul would have 26 points and Blake Griffin would land a huge triple-double with 22 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists in the 92-85 clincher.

San Antonio Spurs (4-1) over Portland Trail Blazers

Tim Duncan set the tone for the series with his game #1 dominance scoring 29 points, grabbing 13 rebounds, dishing out 8 assists and blocking 3 shots.  The discouraging thing for Portland was that LaMarcus Aldridge had a huge game scoring 41 points and grabbing 15 rebounds, but the Blazers still dropped game #1, 110-106.  Portland battled to win game #3, but the message had been sent in the opening games in San Antonio.

Round #2 matchups……

(#5) San Antonio Spurs vs. (#1) Golden State Warriors

(#3) Los Angeles Clippers vs. (#2) Houston Rockets

The matchup everyone wanted in the Spurs-Warriors and another chance to see if the Clippers should have beaten Houston?  Not a bad second round in the West…..
