It’s NBA playoffs time and despite the time zone difference, many Europeans are missing their sleep in order to see live the games of the biggest league in the world and also what their compatriots are achieving. After the first night, all the teams with home court advantage prevailed with Denver being our focus.

French rookie guard Evan Fournier had 11 points, 2 assists and 2 steals, while Greek-American center Kostas Koufos added 6 points and 7 rebounds in the 97-95 win over Golden State. Memphis lost to the Clippers with Ronny Turiaf having 5 points and 3 rebounds, despite the effort of Marc Gasol (16 p., 7 as., 2 r.). Mirza Teletovic was used only one minute in the Nets‘ win over the Bulls. Luol Deng, Joakim Noah and Marco Belinelli couldn’t make a difference for Chicago.
