NBA Playoffs Last Night

The Orlando Magic have tied up the series against the Atlanta Hawks at 1 behind another dominant performance by Dwight Howard.

Howard had 33 points and 19 rebounds. In two games so far, he is averaging 39.5 ppg to go along with 19rpg. Jameer Nelson had a solid game scoring 13 points and grabbing 8 rebounds as well.

For Atlanta, no surprise Jamal Crawford had 25 points off the bench while Josh Smith had 17 and Joe Johnson added 14.

Game 3 is this Friday in Atlanta.

Dallas took a 2-0 lead on Portland last night winning 101-89 behind the efforts of Jason Kidd and Peja Stojakovic. Kidd had 18 while Peja dropped 21 off the bench including 5 threes.

Dirk had a huge game as well scoring 33 points and taking it to Portland's throats at the end of the game.

For Portland, Andre Miller and Gerald Wallace had 18 a piece while LaMarcus Aldridge had 24 points.

Brandon Roy has expressed his frustration about not seeing a lot of playing time but if I'm Portland's front office I'm doing what's best for the future of the team. Roy has two bummed knees. They can't afford to hurt them anymore especially with next year possibly being a huge year for them if Roy comes back full health and the addition of Gerald Wallace mid-season will be great.

Portland suits up Thursday as they bring Dallas to their house and try to regain some momentum in the playoffs.
