Two series mercifully ended as playoff heavyweights delivered final knockout punches while one veteran squad refused to say no mas in a potential elimination game.
Two series with marquee franchies are 3-0 in the first round, but there's one that got more interesting after Friday's games:
Warriors 110, Nuggets 108
CLEVELAND (AP) Kyrie Irving scored 35 points, including 13 in the final 2:52, and the Cleveland Cavaliers stunned the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-110 on Saturday.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) Tim Duncan sprained his left knee and right ankle in the first half of the San Antonio Spurs' 96-86 victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.
