Four more games today as the first round of the NBA Playoffs rolls into day two. Kevin Durant supplied the thrills last night with his game-winner as the Thunder took down the Mavericks in game 1, but the day was marred by season-ending injuries to Bulls' Derrick Rose and Knicks' Iman Shumpert. With Rose out, it appears the Heat won't face much serious resistance in returning to the NBA Finals.
Well, Suns fans, it's another two months until the NBA Draft, which will be followed by the Summer of Steve, and by August we'll have many of our questions about the future of this team answered.
In the meantime, we'll see if this year's post-season can replicate the excitement of last year's when the Spurs were upset in the first round, the Lakers in the second, and the Mavericks got hot at just the right time to send LeBron James home without a ring yet again.
Today's matchups feature the top three seeds in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls, Heat and Pacers. The nightcap will be the West's top team Oklahoma City Thunder hosting the defending NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks. Not a bad way to start things off.
