Thanks to a career high 41 points, Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Milwaukee Bucks to a game four 127-104 win over the Detroit Pistons. Milwaukee will now move on to round two of the playoffs, the first time since 2001 the Bucks have won a first round playoff series. The Bucks will face the Boston Celtics in Round 2.

The Utah Jazz fought hard in game 4 Monday night to  stave off elimination with a 107-91 win over the Houston Rockets. The Jazz can thank Donovan Mitchell for the win, as he scored 19 of his 31 points in the critical fourth quarter. Wednesday night, Houston will host game 5.

A few weeks ago, the Seattle Seahawks made Russell Wilson the highest paid player in the NFL with a $140 million contract extension. To show his gratitude to the guys on the offensive line who protect him every week, Wilson gifted all 13 of them $12,000 in Amazon stock. He wrote, “You sacrifice your physical and mental well-being to protect me, which in turn allows me to provide and care for my family. This does not go unnoticed and it is never forgotten.” He went on to say, “You have invested in my life. this is my investment into yours.”

Browns Select Mayfield, Giants Grab Barkley, Allen To Bills, Greek Freak Saves Bucks, Curry Questionable

FOOTBALL

After months of speculation, we can now rest easy knowing the first round picks in the NFL draft.  The Cleveland Browns shocked many when they selected Heisman trophy winning quarterback from Oklahoma, Baker Mayfield. The New York Giants grabbed running back Saquon Barkley with pick #2.  The New York Jets moved up three spots to take USC quarterback Sam Darnold. The Browns were up with the #4 pick and added Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward. Rounding out the top 5, the Denver Broncos contributed to their defense by selecting defensive end, Bradley Chubb. For a full analysis of the first round picks, click here.

After QB Josh Allen spent the day before the draft apologizing for offensive tweets he made when he was in high school, his high draft prospects looked questionable. The Buffalo Bills, however, traded up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to grab Allen with the #7th spot.

With 31 points and 14 rebounds from the “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Boston Celtics and forced a game seven. After Antetokounmpo couldn’t get a table at BelAir Cantina earlier this week, the restaurant chain is offering free tacos today at any of their Wisconsin locations.

Steph Curry participated in his first full practice after sitting out from an ACL injury. If all goes well in practice, coach Steve Kerr said Curry could be back for game one of the Western Conference semifinals against the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday night.
