2014 NBA Playoffs: Recapping 1st-Round Action from Monday
Chuck Burton

This season has given us one of the wildest postseason rides in NBA history.

Monday, the craziness continued, especially in Indianapolis, where the Indiana Pacers laid another egg. The Eastern Conference's top-seed lost to the sub-.500 Atlanta Hawks, and they now trail 3-2 in the series.

Earlier, the Miami Heat completed a four-game sweep of the Charlotte Bobcats. With all the upsets and road victories everywhere else, Miami was the only higher seed to really take care of business.

Finally, the night closed with another down-to-the-last-buzzer showdown in the Western Conference. In Dallas, the Mavericks overcame a big second-half deficit, but fell just short against the San Antonio Spurs.

All three winning teams got it done on the road, making the visitors 19-14 in this opening round. And with 15 teams still alive, it doesn't look like things are going to calm down any time soon.
