Winners and Losers of the 2014 NBA Playoffs So Far
GREG WAHL-STEPHENS/Associated Press

The first round of the 2014 NBA playoffs was nothing short of historic.

Through the first two weeks of the postseason, fans were treated to eight overtime contests, including four straight in the Oklahoma City Thunder-Memphis Grizzlies series. No series in NBA playoff history had ever featured four straight overtime games, per ESPN Stats & Info, and the eight OT contests in Round 1 also set a new league record. (The most in a full postseason is 10.)

Before Saturday, the NBA had never hosted three Game 7s on the same day. No postseason in league history has ever featured more than five Game 7s, per Basketball Reference, and yet, after this past weekend, we're already at five.

There are still three rounds remaining. 

If you enjoy crunch time, buzzer-beaters and Game 7s, then these playoffs have been a dream come true. And if you don't…well, you should probably have a doctor check your pulse. You must actually be dead.

Let's sort through the winners and losers of the best opening round in NBA postseason history.
