Getting closer to the finish

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

The feel good story of the Golden State Warriors could be ending very soon as the Jazz ran them down to pick up a 115-101. This gives Utah a 3-1 series lead going home tomorrow night where they figure to be tough to beat. It looks like the Cinderella story of the NBA playoffs is striking midnight. I hate that analogy but it feels like the time to use it.

Chicago staved off elimination and a series sweep by beating the red-hot Pistons yesterday afternoon. ‘Sheed had an awful performance shooting 4-for-16 and Chauncey Billups was 5-for-14. For the Bulls, Luol Deng played the entire game and notched a double-double with 25 points and 13 boards. Big Ben Wallace also pulled down 17 rebounds as the Bulls were able to out-rebound Detroit 51-33. It can be quite hard to win a game when your opponents are cleaning the glass like that. It’s still out of the question that Chicago will come back though.
