NBA Playoff Recap

  • The Miami Heat defeated the New York Knicks, 104-94, to take a 2-0 lead in their first round series. Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 25 points, while Carmelo Anthony scored 30 for the Knicks.
  • In one of the lighter moments of the Heat-Knicks game, Mike Bibby lost his shoe, and Dwyane Wade tossed it into the crowd.
  • After the Heat-Knicks game, forward Amar'e Stoudemire apparently punched the glass enclosure of a fire extinguisher, which lacerated his hand. He left the arena with his left hand bandaged and his arm in a sling. He is doubtful for Game 3.
    On his Twitter account, Amar'e said, "I am so mad at myself right now, I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start,"
  • The Indiana Pacers, behind a 30-13 3rd quarter, won Game 2 at home to even the series. Four different players scored 18 points, but three of them (David West, Danny Granger and George Hill) were on Indiana, while Glen Davis was the only member of the Magic to do that. The final score was 93-78.
  • Another terrific game between Dallas and Oklahoma City ended with a second Thunder victory, 102-99. Russell Westbrook scored 29, Durant added 27 and the Thunder now have two playoff victories by a total margin of 4 points.
