Hawks hit entry against Sixers, Clippers showed Mavericks out

Two matches were offered to us last night, and among them a Game 7 of the first round which promised to be delicious, like any Game 7 after all. Finally ? Trae Young and the Hawks began by trapping the Sixers at home in Game 1 of the semi-finals, and it was ultimately … the Clippers who had the last word against the Mavericks of an incredible Luka Doncic in the first half but far too alone in the face of the Californian armada.

The matches of the night

What you must remember

Sixers – Hawks: an incredible Trae Young in the first half with 25 points and 7 assists on the clock, the Sixers asleep and incapable of the slightest reaction. Joel Embiid played and he obviously dominated, but Nate McMillan’s men were more serious for… 44 minutes. 44 because the Sixers will have finally reacted and offered a stifling defense in the money time but too late, much too late. 128-124 after a great fright on the Falcons side, and the promise of a series that looks perhaps more balanced than what people wanted us to believe.

Clippers – Mavericks: the Clippers will not have suffered “so much” in the end. A match carried out almost from start to finish, in which Luka Doncic was absolutely wonderful in the first half before losing steam in the second. Kawhi Leonard was masterful, Paul George very helpful, Nicolas Batum and Terance Mann were perfect X-factors, Luke Kennard blew the wind of revolt, and Reggie Jackson closed the shop. Opposite the genius of Luka will not have been enough, and this morning the contribution of Kristaps Porzingis is for example on everyone’s lips.
