Home teams prevail Saturday in NBA Playoffs

Updated on April 21, 2013

Most fans would expect all of the home clubs to win in their first game of the series. Two cruised to victory's while the other two needed a strong fourth quarter to win.

Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 36 points on the day. The Knicks were in a battle with Boston until a 18-8 fourth qtr gave them a 85-78 win. Jeff Green scored 26 points to pace Boston.

In the best game of the day 37 year old Andre Miller scored a layup with 1.2 seconds to lead Denver to a 97-95 win over Golden State. A 27-16 third qtr gave the Nuggets a shot at winning. Miller scored 28 points on the day. Golden State got 22 points from Klay Thompson.

A dominating first half was all Brooklyn needed in their 106-89 beat down of Chicago. Deron Williams had 22 points and seven assists for the Nets who controlled the game through-out. Carlos Boozer scored 25 points for the Bulls who looked lost in game one. Boozer also had eight rebounds.

In what was predicted to the best game of the night Los Angeles Clippers pulled away in fourth qtr to get a 21 point win against Memphis 112-91. A 37-22 fourth qtr was the difference in this physical game. Chris Paul led the Clippers with 23 points and seven assists.

Chicago and Brooklyn will play game two on Monday. The Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzles will also play game two on Monday. While the other two series will play game two on Tuesday.

Without a doubt day one was exciting for the NBA playoffs. I see New York winning in five games but I am happy that Boston looks to make the Knicks work a little. I still like Denver to win the series but can see this series going seven games after a strong performance from Golden State. Brooklyn's win is not surprising at all and i see this series over in five games. Los Angeles had a big win but look for Memphis to rebound and play stronger in game two. Still like Clippers in six games.

More Impressive win
