Whichever team wins the opening tip also gets the ball to start the 4th quarter. The other team gets it to start the 2nd and 3rd quarters. Each jump ball is its own isolated incident. There is no possession arrow.
It’s a pretty ratty playoffs. Blowouts, injuries and so far, one massive upset. Like… the Bucks Celtics series was good, but had a stinker of a Game 7. And that’s the only series that I can think of as some great next level play between two teams with a ton of drama.
Otherwise… meh. And I felt that way even when the suns were in it because they just seemed ratty too.
