The NBA playoffs started with a bang on Saturday. By the time each series was finished with game one, five of the road teams were victorious. Plenty of those teams had dominant performances to help them secure a win. That’s why we are ready to list the top five performances of the weekend.
Some players were left off the list because they came up small in the biggest moments. Chris Paul had a great game, but his play down the stretch left a lot to be desired. Now the narrative is that he was fouled when he lost the ball out of bounds.
Nene is one player that should be on the list, but we’re only going with five and there had a to be a surprise player that came up clutch.
Even Dwight Howard had a strong game until he was rendered useless at the foul line. Howard’s missed Fts helped Portland comeback from a double digit deficit.
As we get further along into the playoffs, we are sure to get some big names on this list, but they better show up in big moments.
Let’s see game the top five players from game one.
