This weekend featured all 8 game 1’s from this year’s round 1 playoff matchups. 3 road teams were able to pull off upsets. In the east, the 6th seeded Milwaukee Bucks upset the 3rd seeded Toronto Raptors 97-83, and the 8th seeded Chicago Bulls upset the 1st seeded Boston Celtics 106-102. In the west, the 5th seeded Utah Jazz upset the 4th seeded Los Angeles Clippers 97-95.

Senior Jared Patel said “The end of the Jazz-Clippers game was really exciting. I was at the edge of my seat.”

Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo lead the way with 28 points and 8 rebounds and Greg Monroe had 14 points and 15 rebounds off the bench as the Bucks outscored the Raptors 51-32 in the 2nd half on their way to a 97-83 win. Game 2 is April 18th at 7:00 P.M.

Celtics star Isaiah Thomas played a day after his sister died in a car accident and lead his team in scoring with 33 points, but Bulls star Jimmy Butler lead his team with 30 points and 9 rebounds and Robin Lopez added 14 points and 11 rebounds on their way to a 106-102 win. Game 2 is April 18th at 8:00 P.M.

Senior Jon Berte said “It was sad to hear about what happened to Isaiah Thomas’ sister, it definitely affected him in game 1.”

The Jazz lost star center Rudy Gobert seconds into this game with a sprained left knee. They didn’t let this bother them as Gordon Hayward had 19 points and 10 rebounds and Joe Johnson off the bench had 21 points and hit the game winner at the buzzer. The Jazz pulled off a 97-95 upset victory. Game 2 is April 18th at 10:30 P.M.
