Milwaukee River dyed green to celebrate Bucks’ playoff run

Giannis Antetokounmpo James Harden

With or without Griffin, Detroit are facing the NBA's best team.

The Pacers, robbed by season-ending injury of their best player Victor Oladipo, came together and became greater than the sum of their remaining parts to keep pace in the playoff race. After going toe-to-toe with James in the 2017 and 2018 playoffs, the top spot could be his with another big postseason.

When 2 of their 5 prized starters are effectively non-shooters, Brooklyn is the type of team that can use that to shut them down. Something clicked for the former second overall pick, as he finished with career-highs in points (20.1) and assists (7.0).

The Bucks, the top seed of the Eastern Conference, went head-to-head against the third-seeded 76ers last week.

The Clippers clearly have the best second unit in the league. After reaching the last eight NBA Finals, James is out of the playoffs for the first time since his sophomore season in 2004-05.

Reigning champions Golden State Warriors are considered a "super-team" given their level of star power and are heavy favourites to retain their crown at 4/9. His version of the Bucks have averaged more points and more attempts from beyond the arc than any other team - and that includes the shot-happy Warriors.

It's not algae but a dye that has given the Milwaukee River an eye-popping bright green hue to celebrate the Milwaukee Bucks and the team's colour as they head into the National Basketball Association playoffs seeded No. 1 in the Eastern Conference.

Went on a historic scoring run mid-season and remains one of the toughest players to stop. This year, they've got Rubio healthy, and they've added Kyle Korver. This season will be no different as top defensive teams like Milwaukee Bucks, Oklahoma City Thunder and the Toronto Raptors are instantly contenders. To give credit where credit is due, the Clippers deserve to be commended for making the playoffs despite trading away Tobias Harris and being the far less popular LA-based team.

This season, thanks to the return of Irving and Hayward, Tatum and Hayward had to adjust to different roles and bench stars like Terry Rozier had less opportunity than a year ago.

Sure, the Celtics had their problems during the regular season, but the postseason offers them a fresh start. They got players that are ready for the playoffs, so we're looking forward to seeing what our game plan is, looking forward to preparing for this team.

L.A. Clippers at Golden State, 8 p.m.

It will be an enticing tournament to behold, and one we are very eager to see play out. He scored 50 or more points on nine separate occasions and topped 60 twice as well.

The reigning champions are the favorites to claim the National Basketball Association title for a third straight year. Not only do they need to just get out of the first round, but they need to dominate and make this series as short as possible. In the West, No. 3 Portland and No. 6 Oklahoma City meet in a matchup of Northwest Division rivals, and No. 4 Houston and No. 5 Utah square off in the opener of a series between two of the strongest teams in the second half of the season. The Rockets are led by MVP candidate James Harden, who led the league in points per game, and the ever-reliable Chris Paul. The 7-foot Lopez may spend much of his time on offense out on the perimeter shooting 3-pointers, but there's work to do around the basket defensively against the NBA's leading rebounder, who grabbed 15.6 boards per game. Another case for the Nets is that Kenny Atkinson will likely out-coach Brett Brown over the course of the series.

Cousins is coming off a torn Achilles injury he suffered last season, and there were many who questioned if he could return to his All-Star form And while Cousins hasn't come close to the numbers he put up a year ago, he's steadily improved with each passing month, and is starting to look more like the player he once was.

Kevin Durant's impending free agency has been a dark cloud hanging over the team the entire season.
