The NBA playoffs got underway this weekend and it’s going to be epic.
In a recent blogs back in March I recall saying March Madness as the greatest spectacle in sports, and I stand by my words—but I would also like to add, the NBA playoffs is right up there with March Madness.
First round of the playoffs started Saturday April 20, 2013. The first game saw the New York Knicks beat the Boston Celtics 85-78, behind a red hot shooting Carmelo Anthony’s 36 points on ABC. The other matchups on Saturday are Golden State Warriors at the Denver Nuggets on ESPN; the Chicago Bulls at Brooklyn Nets; and the night cap, Memphis Grizzles will play at the Los Angeles Clippers also on ESPN.
Sunday’s first Round games are Atlanta Hawks at the Indiana Pacers on TNT; Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs; Milwaukee Bucks at Miami Heat on TNT; and the Houston Rockets at Oklahoma City Thunder also on TNT.
As I stated earlier, the NBA playoffs are going to be epic. There will be drama and lots of excitement.
