The first round of the play offs is turning into the show of the favorites. Spurs and Miami are leading 3-0 and they need only one more win in order to advance, while the Golden State Warriors survived the Nuggets by a backet and are leading 2-1

The first round match ups between Spurs and the Lakers and also between the Knicks and the Celtics are turning into torture for the two biggest NBA dynasties. The Knicks are leading 3-0 over the Celtics with Carmelo Anthony leading the way and the same applies to San Antonio Spurs, after beating the Lakers 120-89, the worst defeat of L.A. in its play offs history. Tony Parker once more with 20 points and 7 assists was on top of his form, Nando De Colo played also for four minutes and the triple double of Pau Gasol (11 p., 13 r., 10 as.) couldn’t change anything. The most exciting game of the night was played between Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets, with the hosts finally prevailing by two points (110-108) and leading 2-1 in the series. It was a bad game for Kostas Koufos (1 r., 1 as.) and also for rookie Evan Fournier (2 p., 2 as.).
