10 Thoughts on Game 1 Weekend

After a great weekend of Game 1’s, I decided to write a little something about what jumped out to me about the games.

  1. The Raptors finally broke their Game 1 losing streak. It took a record three-point performance, but they got that monkey off their back.
  2. Outside of the Warriors and Thunder, I am hoping for upsets in every series of the 1st round.
  3. The Warriors are too much for the Spurs without Kawhi, who has just been ruled out for the playoffs.
  4. The way the Sixers played on Saturday, the Process may be complete. The entire city of Philiadelphia owed Sam Hinkie a big apology.
  5. Playoff Rondo is a real thing. The guy has ten triple-doubles in less than 100 playoff games.
  6. Can Terry Rozier channel his inner Kyrie Irving  for an entire playoff series.
  7. Playoff Lebron cannot carry the defensively retarded Cavs over the Pacers.
  8. The OKC Three plus Melo made a big splash in Game 1.
  9. Derrick Rose balled out for the Wolves in Game 1. Too bad Jimmy Butler and KAT didn’t get enough touches.
  10. James Harden had to put in an MVP performance in order to carry the Rockets through Game 1.
