The titillating first round of the NBA playoffs finally concluded on late Sunday afternoon when the last two remaining best-of-seven games were played. It was a roller coaster of a first round with high enjoyment content and some history making. I couldn’t find a single soul who had any doubt about the Miami Heat advancing first.
