If the NBA is "where amazing happens," the 2012 NBA playoffs are "where 'oh no' happens."

First, Derrick Rose tore his ACL with less than two minutes left in a convincing Game 1 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. The loss of the MVP candidate has drastically changed the landscape of the Eastern Conference playoffs. It has seriously put Chicago's title hopes in jeopardy while increasing the hopes of every other team in the conference.

Next, the Memphis Grizzlies downshifted when being up by 20 points with eight minutes left in their Game 1 contest with the Clippers. While cruising, they forgot to check their rearview mirrors to see the Clippers making a ferocious comeback. The Clippers would eventually end up winning a game they had no business being in.

Finally, Amar'e Stoudemire got so fed up after the Game 2 loss to the Heat that he took his frustrations out on some glass in the hallway to the locker room, severely cutting himself and making himself questionable for the rest of the postseason. Many thought the Knicks would give the Heat a tough series.

Not anymore.
