Eye on Basketball Podcast: Great first weekend for the playoffs
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the opening weekend of the NBA playoffs, the firing of Mike Woodson, and the retirement of Rick Adelman.
Matt Moore joins me after a great opening weekend to the 2014 NBA Playoffs to discuss the incredible action. On Saturday, we were treated by a great environment in the Brooklyn Nets ' win over the Toronto Raptors . Was inexperience at play here? How can you learn anything from the Golden State Warriors ' win over the Los Angeles Clippers with such atrocious officiating involved? How much trouble are the Indiana Pacers officially in after dropping Game 1 to the Atlanta Hawks ? And do the Memphis Grizzlies have a shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder ?
Sunday's action gave us the San Antonio Spurs having a very un-Spurs-like performance but still getting the win because Tony Parker and Tim Duncan took over. Was that Dallas' only shot for a win in the series? The Miami Heat handled a competitive Charlotte Hornets ' team after Al Jefferson 's injury, but can the Bobcats win a game in this series? How good was the Washington Wizards ' road win over the Chicago Bulls ? And how fun was the shootout between the Houston Rockets and the Portland Trail Blazers ? Can we order six more of those?
We discuss all of that, plus the firing of Mike Woodson, the retirement of Rick Adelman, and preview tonight's playoff games.
