Hangover Sports Roundup: Rose dominates, Lakers get upset, Ray Allen's game winner

NBA Playoffs 2011


Whoever said the first round of the NBA Playoffs are boring, they are eating a lot of crow right now as opening weekend delivered upsets and game winning shots.

Chicago Bulls vs. Indiana Pacers


Many believed the No. 1 seeded Chicago Bulls weren't a legitimate threat to win the title. Perhaps the 37-point performance by leading MVP candidate Derrick Rose may turn doubters into believers. Game one witnessed the No. 8 seeded Indiana Pacers control the majority of game despite being huge underdogs. But playoff inexperience cost the Pacers with Rose hitting clutch shots to steal the victory 104-99. Chicago hopes to make game two less dramatic and take a 2-0 lead tonight.

In order to spring the upset, the Hornets needed an entire team effort, especially because David West season ending injury. Chris Paul stepped up and put on a performance that would make even Derrick Rose jealous with 33 points and 14 assists. The 109-100 victory gives the Hornets home court and hope of creating one of the biggest upsets in the history of playoff basketball.

Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks


The Celtics have heard it all before: they're old, injured and not supposed to win. But Boston continues to ignore critics and make one last playoff run. The Knicks were coming off their best season in years and have high playoff expectations. The Celtics were behind the majority of the first half but pulled into the lead in the fourth quarter. The game was close, but the Knicks took bad shots and gave Boston a chance to win. Ray Allen moved off a screen and hit a game winning three pointer to take game one 87-85. Along with losing, New York now has to deal with an injury to star point guard Chauncey Billups. If Billups can't play, Boston should dominate the rest of the series.
