Australians in NBA Playoffs: first round
76ers upset at home in the opening game hosting the Nets. Simmons 9/7/3 for -21. Bolden got 5 minutes for 2 points. Philly might be rattled now!
Bogut got all of 2 minutes off the bench against the Clippers. 3/1/1. GSW won.
Spurs upset the Nuggets despite a pretty sparse starting group. Mills had 4/2/3 and +7 in 21 minutes.
Bucks smacked Detroit. Maker had 4/4/0 in 22 minutes for -16; probably not quite the revenge game he would've dreamt of. (Drummond was -45 in his 26 minutes before getting ejected!)
Celtics handled Indiana. Baynes got the start and had 9 boards in 23 minutes.
Ingles hit just one shot in his 32 minutes in a 32 point loss to Houston. He had 4 boards and 5 assists though.
All up, besides Baynes on the boards, it's been a meagre impact from Australians so far. A nice upset for Mills at least.
