The Spurs were led by their star guard DeMar DeRozan who overcame a bad shooting night to do just enough in the end to give the Spurs a 1-0 lead in the series.

LaMarcus Aldridge converted two free throws to increase the lead to 99-96, and Derrick White stole the ball from the Nuggets to secure the lead with two more free throws. But, he took the floor and tallied 22 points, along with 15 rebounds, in 24 minutes of action.

While LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan may have put up the numbers, finishing with 18 and 15 points each, it was the Spurs' young backcourt of Derrick White and Bryn Forbes that won this game for them.

"The only negative of the game for the Warriors came when Kevin Durant was ejected along with the Clippers" Patrick Beverley after picking up his second technical foul. Philadelphia has had problems defending pick-and-rolls with guards, and Kenny Atkinson game planned for that perfectly.


Jimmy Butler was Philadelphia's best player in the opener. When you get the affirmation on the court over the course of a season, it's the kind of thing that allows you to deliver a looks-like-we've-been-here-before performance against a team featuring one of the NBA's most high-powered starting lineups. A few years ago we were winning 10 games. He logged 39 minutes and shot lights out.

The Los Angeles Lakers' senior management has plans to travel East to meet with Philadelphia 76ers assistant Monty Williams between Games 2 and 3 of the Sixers' playoff series, league sources told ESPN. ORLANDO MAGIC 104-101 TORONTO RAPTORS D.J. Augustin scored 25 points, including the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 3.5 seconds left, and Orlando beat Toronto in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series. Starting point guard Kyle Lowry had a awful game where he scored ZERO points in 34 minutes of action.

The Brookyln Nets secured a 111-102 victory against the Philadelphia 76ers in the National Basketball Association play-offs. The No. 3-seed Philadelphia is favored by 8.5 in the latest Nets vs. Sixers odds after the line opened at -7.5, with the over-under for total points scored set at 226. His 64 games played marked a personal high in a young career that's been marred by injuries. Meanwhile, Tobias Harris had just four points. Favorites getting less than 50% of bets, like the 76ers, have gone 230-198-14 (54%) ATS since 2005 in the playoffs. That said, there's a lot of positive noise coming out of their locker room ahead of game 2.
