The Chicago Bulls lost to the Brooklyn Nets in Game 1. Plenty of action in that series and for the Bulls to react to the loss so they can get back into the series. The Nets played better basketball than Chicago did. Plain and simple. They made the extra pass. They shot better. They played better defense and gave more effort than Chicago did. The Golden State Warriors lost to the Denver Nuggets on a last second shot. The Warriors hung around until they finally lost on a game-winning layup belonging to Andre Miller. The Warriors did everything right in the game against the Nuggets. They played stifling defense and didn’t allow the Nuggets to run their fast-paced fast break game. They just let a game go to Denver. The team to watch out for in the NBA playoffs are the L.A. Clippers. Why? They have a lot of players on the bench that can contribute in a hurry, get rebounds, play defense, and score points. They surprised the Memphis Grizzlies in their Game 1. Look for the Clippers to run and gun especially when you have Chris Paul on the wings and DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin running beside him.
