Both #1 seeds, the Golden State Warriors and the Atlanta Hawks, tied their series at 2-2. The Hawks beat the Wizards 106-101 while the Warriors ran over the Grizzlies, winning 101-84. Here are the highlights.
Paul Millsap has Some Nice Moves
A crossover and a reverse layup, made easy by Millsap.
Vince Carter Really Shouldn’t be Celebrating
Vince Carter was so happy to score a basket, he forgot his team was getting blown out.
Small guy on Small guy blocks are the Best
Bradley Beal had his first 30-point playoff game, and also a nice little block on Schroder.
Zach Randolph Getting Some Tough Love from his Head Coach
Joerger wasn’t happy with the result, and at some point was getting tired of seeing Zach Randolph complaining to the referees.
Nene With the Big Boy Dunk on Al Horford
The Hawks have been struggling with the Wizards’ bigs all series long. Al Horford didn’t have much of a chance anyway in stopping Nene, but the end result was still quite pitiful for him.
Sometimes I’m Clutch, Sometimes I Miss Wide Open Shots
Paul Pierce had a chance to tie the game and be the hero again, but a much more difficult shot than the one he nailed to win game three didn’t fall for him. So is it luck when he misses or just when he scores?
Kyle Korver Can Also Assist
A simply beautiful pass from Korver, who is more than just a 3-point specialist.
The Stephen Curry Steal and Slam
The Warriors were all over the confused Grizzlies on both ends of the floor. Even Curry got in on the defensive dominance, creating some nice points with it.
Time for some Acrobatics
Not exactly part of the basketball game; more like the acrobatics. But it was still impressive.
Giving the MVP a Hi-5
Even though the game was in Memphis and the man in question was a Grizzlies fan, he still seemed very excited about hi-fiving Stephen Curry.
