2014 NBA Playoffs: Recapping 1st-Round Action from Sunday

The NBA playoff show must go on. 

It wants to go on.

The first round of the NBA playoffs continues Sunday with four pivotal games that will go a long way in determining which teams advance to the second round and which teams go home early. 

A first-half offensive explosion, coupled with the Bulls' inability to score, allowed the Wizards to snag another victory and grab complete control of their first-round series.

The Clippers couldn't overcome owner Donald Sterling capturing headlines for all the wrong reasons (again), allowing the Warriors to send the series back to Los Angeles knotted up at two games apiece.

Toronto made up for a lousy third quarter display and went on a 14-2 run over the game's final six minutes to even their series with the Brooklyn Nets. 

Finally, the Blazers emerged with a huge 123-120 overtime victory over the Rockets and have now pushed Houston to the brink of elimination thanks to 55 second second-half points and a 17-point output in the extra session. It was the third overtime game between the Rockets and Blazers through four games. 

Things are heating up as teams play deeper into the first round. 

Let the craziness continue.
