NBA Playoff Game Thread: April 24, 2019

Two potential closeout games are up

NBA: Playoffs-Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Clippers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Thanks to suggestions from you, our loyal readers, we make sure to give the people what they want! Without further ado, the official Brew Hoop Playoff thread is here. On the Bucks off-nights, we’ll create a spot to stir the discussion stew surrounding how other teams are faring in their own fight for a title.

Utah Jazz vs. Houston Rockets (HOU leads 3-1)

Time: 7:00 PM (TNT)

The stakes: Following a fresh waxing for three games straight, the Utah Jazz finally fought back to secure a victory against the surging Houston Rockets. Donovan Mitchell broke out of a shooting slump to get them a victory, but the series shifts back to Houston with a chance to close it out and begin prepping for the inevitable.

LA Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors (GSW 3-1)

Time: 9:30 pm (TNT)

The stakes: This is that inevitable. The Golden State Warriors may have stumbled into the Clippers making a historic comeback in game two, but they’re nearly through playing perhaps the West’s peskiest squad. Back in the friendly confines of the Bay, I imagine they finish this one out.
