Good morning. We have that and more in Saturday’s NBA newsletter.

If you don’t love Steve Ballmer at his Devastated By Joe Johnson’s Daggers, you don’t deserve him at his Apoplectic At Chris Paul’s Genius. The Point God struck again Friday night, racking up 29 and eight as the best player on the floor by no small measure. He did it in Utah, one of the toughest places for road teams to play. He did it facing elimination and with Blake Griffin out.

Game 7 will be Sunday (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC). That will be our only Game 7 in the first round, though.

The Wizards went up big on the Hawks in their Game 6 on Friday … and the Hawks steadily climbed back into it, getting close late in the fourth. Then John Wall went fully bonkers, dropping 12 straight points on a mix of jumpers and drives to the rim. Then he taunted Julio Jones, sitting courtside, and said goodbye to Atlanta. So petty!

Milwaukee’s offense has hit a rut at an inopportune time, averaging just 84.5 points per game over the last two games in this series after putting up 100.3 points per game through the first three games of the series.

With the exception of Game 5, the Bucks have done a good job of keeping Toronto’s explosive offense in check this postseason, but they’ll need to find their own rhythm on offense again if they hope to extend this series. The Bucks are 4-13 SU and 7-10 ATS in their last 17 playoff games.

Thursday’s total is set at 195 points. The UNDER is 13-4-1 in Milwaukee’s last 18 postseason games.

Despite the close nature of this series with both team splitting at home and on the road through the first four games, all but one game has been decided by 11 points or more. Milwaukee will try to get back on the right side of a blowout and force a Game 7 with a home win.
