NBA wRap: Bulls demolish Bucks, Clippers stay alive
Chicago destroys Milwaukee while Los Angeles and San Antonio goes down to a game 7

MANILA, Philippines – The Chicago Bulls are on their way to a duel with the Cleveland Cavaliers, while in Los Angeles, the Spurs and Clippers will have a Game 7 to conclude their epic series.

Chicago Bulls 120 – 66 Milwaukee Bucks

The Bulls finished the Bucks by making NBA history with the largest winning margin in a closeout game. It was an incredible performance by Chicago, who looked nothing like the team that lost Game 5 at home and just flat-out destroyed Milwaukee.

At one point in the third period, Chicago was ahead 83-38. Mike Dunleavy led the team with 20 points. Pau Gasol had 19 points and 8 boards.

There’s nothing much to say about the game other than Chicago was incredible. They now head to Cleveland for Games 1 and 2 of the Eastern Conference semis against an old rival in LeBron James, who won’t have Kevin Love and JR Smith.

The result wasn’t the only ugly part about the game:


Los Angeles Clippers 102 – 96 San Antonio Spurs

The Clippers went to San Antonio and won Game 6 to keep their playoff hopes alive. It was a superb performance from Blake Griffin, who had 26 points. Chris Paul scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half, and the two just took over in the final period.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich called his team’s performance embarrassing. Kawhi Leonard went 3-of-15 from the field. Marco Belinelli put up 23 points off the bench.

The Spurs were up 10 in the first half, but Los Angeles was able to tie the game by halftime. Late in the fourth period, the Clippers made big shots late and came up with key defensive stops to win the game.

How nerve-racking was the game? Ask the Clippers’ owner:

Pop was really unhappy:

The Spurs did have this fantastic play. Too bad it was one of the rare instances where they really moved the ball against Los Angeles:
