It's only fitting that the 2013 NBA playoffs are primarily featured on a channel whose slogan is "We Know Drama."

Week 4 of the postseason featured enough twists and turns to rival an episode of Lost.

Momentum flip-flopped on a game-by-game basis between the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors. The Indiana Pacers took a seemingly insurmountable 3-1 series lead over the New York Knicks, only to learn hours before Game 5 that their starting point guard had a concussion.

Meanwhile, in the Oklahoma City Thunder-Memphis Grizzlies series, all five games were decided by six points or fewer.

The only team that didn't experience much Week 4 drama was the Miami Heat, who handled the Chicago Bulls with relative ease after being upset in Game 1 at home. Heading into the conference finals, the health of Dwyane Wade's knee lingers as the most worrisome issue for Heat fans.

Before the conference semifinals reach their dramatic conclusion, let's look back at the winners and losers from the fourth week of the 2013 NBA playoffs.


Note: For the purposes of this slideshow, Week 4 spans from games played on Friday, May 10, through Thursday, May 16. All advanced statistics come from either Basketball-Reference or, unless otherwise noted.
