With two games down in each 2013 NBA first-round playoff series, we've seen a host of highlights and lowlights in the first few days of the postseason.

There's no shortage of candidates for the top. Paul George dropped a triple-double in Indiana's playoff-opening game (and followed up with 27 points in Game 2), while LeBron James and Russell Westbrook each flirted with triple-doubles of their own in their opening games.

It's easy to throw the top teams in both conferences among the "winners" list, too, as they've all been steamrolling their opponents into submission.

With three 20-plus-point blowouts in just Game 1s alone, we also have plenty of candidates for the worst moments of the first week.

Defensive guru Tom Thibodeau couldn't have slept easy after seeing his team give up 106 points to the Brooklyn Nets in Game 1, while the grit-and-grind Memphis Grizzlies can't be thrilled giving up 112 to the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1, either. Both teams rebounded nicely in Game 2, but only one could score the upset victory.

Let's take a look at some of the biggest winners and losers of Week 1.
