Last night a few game 4&5's were played. First Cleveland did what they needed to do and swept the Wizards by winning game 4 97-90. The Wizards were ahead most of the game but the Cavs swooped in late and got what they wanted. LeBron James had a big game with 31 points, 11 boards and 7 assists. James did it all so his team could get some rest for round 2.

The Rockets won game 5 of their series against the Jazz 96-92. The Rockets didn't lead much throughout the game either, but the Jazz didn't play hard enough in crunch time to win. Game 6 will be the best one of all because Houston didn't win any games in Utah in this series yet and they have to win to close out the series. This series will probably go 7 games because each team is very tough to beat at home. Tracy McGrady was great with 26 points and 16 assists. Keeping his entire team involved in the offense will give them more confidence as they move forward.

The Spurs beat the Nuggets 96-89. Robert Horry hit a huge shoot that sealed the deal for the Spurs. Denver let them back in the game and they should be ashamed. I expect the Nuggets to win game 5, but not this series. The Spurs have much more firepower and the Nuggets can't contain them.
