Cleveland leads series 1-0

Spoiler:
Build a Franchise's top team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, made their franchises initial leap into the postseason with a dominating 121-98 victory over the eighth seeded Atlanta Hawks. The crowd at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse have waited four years for this night and they made their presence felt early in the game. Even a short jumper from Larry Nance which put the Hawks ahead 2-0 on the games first possession couldn't quiet the raucous crowd. The Cavs rewarded their "sixth man" running off nine straight points to take a 9-2 lead, which they would never relinquish. Deandre Ayton led the Cavs with 29 points and 15 rebounds and Julius Randle added 24 and 8 off the bench for the victorious Cavs. Cleveland led by as many as 32 points in the second half as they showed the rest of the league that the regular season was no fluke. Steph Curry led the Hawks with 22 points. Both teams will take the court again tomorrow night as the Hawks will try and even up the series.

The 76ers, still playing without second leading scorer CJ McCollum beat up on the Raptors, 120-105 to take a one game to none lead in their best of seven first round matchup. A tie game entering the fourth quarter quickly went in the home teams favor as the 76ers opened the fourth quarter with a 12-4 run in the first four minutes. John Collins led the way with 35 points and 18 rebounds for the Sixers who had seven players score double digits in the game. Philadelphia outrebounded Toronto 51-32 in the game.

Chicago was only able to get the deficit under double digits one time after a Kemba Walker three pointer cut the Charlotte lead to 65-54 midway through the third quarter. The two teams will be back at it tomorrow night in a now crucial game two for the Bulls.
