2012 NBA Playoffs: Monday's First-Round Open Thread

Richard Rowe-US PRESSWIRE

The 2012 NBA playoffs are under way and their beginnings certainly didn't lack for drama. Not when one game featured a season-ending injury of the reigning MVP, another featured an unbelievable comeback from 25+ down, another featured an incredibly difficult game-winning shot, and another featured the ejection and one-game suspension of a team's best player.

Read Detroit Bad Boy's official Eastern Conference and Western Conference playoff previews and laugh about how wrong we'll probably get it.

So what does tonight's Game 2s have in store for us?

New York Knicks vs. Miami Heat -- TNT (7 p.m.)

Heat leads 1-0

The New York Knicks are attempting to atone for the absolute beatdown they took at the hands of the Miami Heat while the Knicks hope to look like they belonged in the playoffs in the first place.

Orlando Magic vs. Indiana Pacers -- NBA TV (7:30 p.m.)

Magic leads 1-0

it looked like the Magic might roll over and play dead in the playoffs with the loss of Dwight Howard. Instead Glen Davis, the man tabbed Howard's replacement, led the Magic to a stunning win. The Pacers took a punch in the first game and tonight will let us know if they can punch back.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder -- TNT (9:45 p.m.)

Thunder leads 1-0

Kevin Durant made an absolutely ridiculous shot to win Game 1. Shawn Marion says it was "lucky." Dirk Nowitzki has made a few "lucky" shots in his career. It should be a fun game to watch.The defending champions hope to regain homecourt advantage tonight.
