The NBA Playoffs never disappoint and there were some amazing performances in round 1 to highlight.
Steph Curry 50-Point Game 7
With the defending-champion Warriors on the ropes in game 7 on the road Steph Curry took over and scored the most points in a game 7 in NBA playoff history. Curry took a ridiculous 38 shots in the game knocking down 20 of them to beat the Kings and advance to the second round.
Reaves and Hachimura Game 1
After a full round 1 it is hard to remember some performances that happened early on. In game 1 the Lakers relied on their role players Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura to get the win as they combined for 52 points to beat the Grizzlies. Reaves was doing the bulk of the scoring for the Lakers down the stretch of the 4th to secure the win.
Jimmy Butler Closes out the Bucks
The Heat relied heavily on Jimmy Butler in round 1 as he scored 56 points to beat the Bucks in a comeback win and then scored 42 including a buzzer beater to go to overtime to close the series out. These were two incredible playoff performances.
