Upsets galore!

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

Game 1’s in the NBA’s playoff match ups proved didn’t prove to be incredibly favourable for the home teams this weekend with five of the eight underdogs taking home a win. Only the Pistons, Cavaliers and Suns managed to walk away with wins against their lower seeded opponents. The Mavericks, number one in the West, couldn’t handle the Baron Davis-led Warriors in what was the biggest upset of the weekend. Vince Carter’s playoff return to Toronto ended up with a lot of boos and a win. The Rockets and the Bulls were both victorious in the 4 vs. 5 match ups and Denver’s scorers were able to take down the fundamentally sound San Antonio Spurs. If some of these surprises carry through in the playoffs, it should be a good one.
