NBA 1st Round Matchups — Illustrated

These illustrations have made their viral rounds around the web, originating from Redditor SnowceanJay and depicting all 8 NBA 1st Round Matchups in the literal sense. The most badass is definitely Bulls-Bucks, but the most creative is how he depicted Spurs-Clippers, IMO. What’s your favorite?

Damian Lillard series-ending buzzer beater vs. Rockets

#ColdBlooded.

This shot, was just so unbelievably sweet. As cold as it gets.

And on top of that, as Bill Simmons rattled off, off the top of his head on SportsCenter, this is a rare series-ending walk-off buzzer beater. MJ in ’89 vs. the Cavs. Ralph Sampson vs. the Lakers in ’86. (And one he didn’t mention on air… John Stockton versus… wait for it… the Rockets in ’97). Are there any more? Pretty good company.

Relive the shot of Lillard‘s career and some photos of the fallout below.
