The first game features the seven-seed Lakers, up 1-0 in the series, against the two-seed Grizzlies in Memphis. LA used a dominating overall team performance to get past their rivals in Game One 128-112 despite LeBron James and Anthony Davis only putting up 21 and 22 points, respectively. Rui Hachimura and Austin Reaves led the way with 29 and 23 points.
The biggest story from Game One, however, is Ja Morant’s hand injury he suffered on a nasty clash to the floor after colliding with a defender attempting to draw a charge while he was airborne. Morant admitted that there is doubt that he is available for Game Two and was in extreme pain—notably, the Lakers were already up four points when Morant exited in the fourth quarter of Game One.
Davis, despite the slower scoring night, eviscerated the Grizzlies on defense and on the glass, adding 12 rebounds, seven blocks, and three steals to his scoring total. Jaren Jackson Jr. (31 points, five rebounds, four assists) did his back to fight back, but Memphis’ lack of interior presence and depth ultimately led to their downfall. They are now heavy underdogs to win the series.
The second game on Wednesday’s slate is Game Two between the Heat and Bucks in Milwaukee. The Heat, who got into the playoff bracket as the winner of the 9/10 matchup in the play-in tournament, managed to steal a win in the first meeting 130-117. Giannis Antetokunmpo exited in the first quarter with a lower back injury and did not return to the game, leaving Khris Middleton (33 points, nine rebounds) to do the majority of the heavy lifting.
The Heat’s win did not come without sacrifice. Shooting guard Tyler Herro broke two of his fingers diving for a loose ball and is out for 4-6 weeks, leaving them down another sniper when they were already one of the league’s most incapable three-point shooting teams.
Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer offered an optimistic update on Giannis, whose MRI showed no structural damage. Assuming he returns soon, the Bucks should uphold their status as favorites to win the series. But with Jimmy Butler rounding into playoff form on the other side, nothing is a guarantee.
The final game Wednesday features the Nuggets and the Timberwolves. Denver annihilated the visitors, who also got in by virtue of the 9/10 play-in game, 109-80 in Game One over the weekend. Troublingly, from the Timberwolves’ perspective, reigning two-time MVP Nikola Jokic tied for the lowest scoring output of Denver’s starters, all of which were in double figures. Jamal Murray claimed the team-high with 24 points and made four of 10 three-pointers.
The Timberwolves looked totally lost on offense. Anthony Edwards scored a team-high 18 points but only shot 6-15 from the field, and Karl-Anthony Towns, Mike Conley, and Rudy Gobert combined for just 27 points. The team shot a combined 37% from the field and 30.6% from beyond the arc.
Denver coach Mike Malone has been begging publicly for his team to play better defense, and they gave him what he was looking for in Game One. It’s unlikely that they hang their hat on defense throughout the playoffs, but they already asserted themself as the superior team in this series and would need a minor miracle not to make it into the next round.
