The first week of the NBA playoffs is in the books, complete with late-game drama, overtime thrillers and even the foundation set for a No. 1 seed to be upset.
The biggest surprise of the first week of the playoffs is the lackluster performance of one of the regular season's most entertaining teams—the Indiana Pacers.
The Pacers have not been outdueled by any individual player, however, like the No. 4-seeded Houston Rockets have been by power forward LaMarcus Aldridge.
This is a look at those individual performances that stood out after week one of the 2014 NBA playoffs. The flavors of the week...enjoy.
