On Tuesday night the city of Miami became the scenario of the first game of the Eastern Conference semifinals as the Miami Heat took on the Brooklyn Nets.
Miami had more less one full week of rest as they waited for the rest of the first-round teams to wrap up their standings, but let’s not forget Brooklyn won every regular-season meetings against the Heat and had always been a team quite difficult to predict.
Despite the efforts, host Miami managed to pull a well-deserved win over Brooklyn for a final score of 107 – 86. Miami´s top performers LeBron James scored 22 points while Ray Allen added another 19 points It is the first win for Miami in 5 meetings with Brooklyn during this season.
“This is the defending champs,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said. “It’s always going to be at a high level and we’ve got to find a way to match it.”

On the other hand, the city of San Antonio was upbeat for most of the night as the Spurs hosted Game 1 against Portland Trail Blazers. The home team was the favorite to win this first game and they certainly took advantage of their crowd and had complete control of the show from beginning to end.
The Spurs were absolutely on fire, and the Blazers were not able to keep up and manage better shots neither improve on their jump shooters. We can confidently say last night game was a living nightmare for Portland.
Moving forward, Game 2 of the Conference Semifinals will be on Thursday night as San Antonio and Miami will be hosts of Game 2 in the series.
This evening the scheduled clashes are between Washington Wizards and No. 1 seed Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder.
