The first game saw a depleted Bulls team go up against an over-rested Heat team and...it...sucked. Nobody could buy a bucket as the Heat came out flat and succomed to Chicago's punishingly slow offense and turtleneck tight defense. The Heat could not score ONE BUCKET in the last 2:22 of the game giving the Bulls a huge game one upset. Don't be suprised if you see LeBron explode for 40 points in game 2.

The second matchup out west was a wild west shootout as the Spurs climbed back from being down 18 in the fourth quarter to win in double overtime. After leading the ENTIRE game it appeared the Warriors ran out of gas late allowing the savvy veteran group back in the game. With lots of youth and inexperience on the floor the Warriors showed they are a team to reckon with, but they MUST finish the games stronger if they want to make this a series.
