NBA 2014 Playoffs - Game 1s Day One - TBT Post
Wrote my thoughts on the 2015 NBA Playoffs plus some TBT thoughts earlier. Going to write another tbt post about the first day Game 1s in last year's NBA playoffs.
Game 1s are the most likely games that underdogs win. You can look no further than last year's Game 1s. Golden State won 109-105 over the Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets triumphed over Toronto Raptors 94 - 87, and Atlanta Hawks proved they belong in the playoffs drubbing number 1 seed Indiana Pacers, 101-93. Don't let the score fool you folks... Hawks was up double digits most of the third and fourth quarters and late baskets by Indy pulled them close but the result of the game was decided even before the fourth quarter started. My, how time flies and things certainly change. Indiana isn't in this year's play-offs and last year's respective eight seeds for both conference - Golden State and Atlanta - are now the top seeds!
Glad that we have real basketball playing now and not that sorry-a$$ excuse of games in the regular season.
Good luck everyone and looking forward to talk about basketball to other NBA fans out there.
