Chris Paul scores 19 in the last, Atlanta beats Miami

The basketball players of Milwaukee and Phoenix took a 2: 1 lead in the first round of the playoffs against Chicago and New Orleans, respectively, while Atlanta reduced the gap behind the Miami Heat to 1: 2. After two games in Florida, where the best team in East Miami dominated, in the third match, Atlanta achieved a 111: 110 victory on its floor in a dramatic finale.

The hero in the Atlanta win, the squad that played in the Eastern Conference finals last season, was Trae Young, who scored the winning basket five seconds before the end. Jimmy Butler, on the other hand, had a terrible day.

Bucks easily and without Middleton Although the Milwaukee players, the current NBA champions, were without the injured Middleton, they easily skipped Chicago away (111: 81), thus restoring the advantage of the home floor.

Everything was over after the first quarter, which completely focused the rest of the match (33:17), and during the third period, the guests went by a difference of 30 points and more. Great for the Bucks was Grayson Allen with 22 points (8/12 shots) and six rebounds, while Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 18 with seven rebounds and nine assists.

Bobby Portis gave up 18 points for the guests and made 16 rebounds. In Chicago, most of the players failed, so DeRozan scored 11, ie thirty less than in the last game, and the first name was Nikola Vucevic with 19 points and six rebounds.

Paul first in 20 years

Phoenix lost their second home game against New Orleans but retaliated with a "break" at the first opportunity. They won away 114: 111 and thus took the lead 2: 1. The end of the match was not dramatic, because the current runners-up constantly kept the opponent at a distance of five or six points.

In the absence of the injured Booker at Phoenix, the top scorers were Deandre Ayton and Chris Paul. They both scored 28 points, with Ayton adding 17 rebounds and Paul 14 assists. Also, with this game, Paul became the first basketball player in the last 20 years of the NBA League to score at least 19 in the last quarter of playoff games on four occasions.

Phoenix won, interestingly, despite the fact that he scored 4/26 for three points. At New Orleans, they were led by Brandon Ingram with 34 points and seven rebounds and CJ McCollum with 30 points and seven assists.
