No matter what happens from here on out, a member of the Brotherhood will compete for the NBA title this year.
In the West, all four remaining teams have Duke players; on the East side, two out of four do.
As of right now, the only teams lacking Blue Devils entirely are Toronto and Milwaukee and Milwaukee technically has Trevon Duval under contract although we don’t think he’s on the playoff roster.
If Boston and Philly prevail, then at least one former Blue Devil is guaranteed a ring.
Duke was, therefore, obviously well represented in Monday night’s NBA playoff action. Rodney Hood scored 17 points in Portland’s 113-121 loss to Denver. Seth Curry chipped in four.
For the Nuggets, Mason Plumlee had six points, six boards and five steals.
And in Philly’s 94-89 win over Toronto, JJ Redick had 11 points.
On Tuesday night, Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum lead Boston against Milwaukee in Game Two while Quinn Cook will help Golden State take on Austin Rivers and the Houston Rockets.
