NBA Playoffs Results for Monday, April 22

* All Times Eastern

  • Milwaukee Bucks 127, Detroit Pistons 104 (Box Score)
  • Utah Jazz 107, Houston Rockets 91 (Box Results) [19659009] Mitchell scores 19 points in 4th, leads Jazz to Game 4 win

    Jazz won’t be swept. In perhaps their last home game of the season, Donovan Mitchell scored 19 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter to lead Utah to a 107-91 win in Game 4.

    Harden makes Crowder fall, then nails 3-pointers
    [19659006] The rockets want to sweep the jazz, and James Harden tries his best to make it happen. Before halving, Harden Jae Crowder did to calmly transform himself into this 3-point attempt.

    Crowder carries Jazz to first quarter management

    Jazz, who faces elimination, got a big spark early from Jae Crowder. Veteran forward brought the road with 14 points during the opening season when Jazz entered the second quarter with a 32-24 leader.

    Giannis dominates as Bucks Sweep Pistons

    Another NBA bites dust in the after-season. Bucks put the pistons out of their misery and officially eliminated Detroit after their 127-104 win in Game 4. Giannis booked a playoff career-high 41 points and nine rebounds in the winner as Bucks will face Boston Celtics in the second round of playoffs.

    Griffin gets standing ovation from the piston mass

    The pistons will not beat Bucks in Game 4, but the detroit audience will not forget Blake Griffin’s performance. Griffin turned in his second straight sovereign performance while playing with a snapped left knee, scoring 22 points, gripping five rebounds and dishing six assists. When Griffin left the game halfway through the fourth quarter, the home team showed that the former All-Star would show some respect on their way out.

    Bucks goes on 20-3 in the third quarter

    The pistons took a lead over the Bucks title in half, but Milwaukee was sure to remind Detroit why it is the best seed in the Eastern Conference – and the NBA for that part. Bucks took control in the third quarter of their match 4 games against the pistons, going on a 20-3 run in the third quarter to take a 10-point lead in the final frame.

    Giannis gets it done on both stops

    Giannis Antetokounmpo lived up to his Greek Freak nickname with two incredible games in the first half against the pistons. First he threw another big dunk over his former teammate Thon Maker, then only a few minutes later he stepped for a ridiculous rejection.

    Griffin throws down a big slam in transition

    Blake Griffin’s detention knee problem kept him out of the first two games in the series, but he has been back in play since Game 3 and his knee felt good enough to throw it down a massive dunk on the quick break early in Game 4. Unfortunately, he stumbled a little after dunk and may have tweaked something.
