  • Game 1

    While this game was starting off the #1 seed in the West, the San Antonio Spurs, dropped Game 1 to the #8 seed, the Memphis Grizzlies.

    Who knew that we would see another huge upset? Yesterday 3 lower seeds nearly shocked the higher seeds, and one upset did happen, although that was just a #5 beating a #4.

    Chris Paul proved me wrong and showed that he is an elite point guard with his performance today. The supporting cast definitely helped too. The Lakers have had a bad 6 or so weeks and it continued here tonight in this tough opening game loss. I think they can recover, but we could see the Hornets shock the world in round one.
