The first round of the 2014 NBA playoffs may go down as the greatest opening round in the history of the league, and there were plenty of electrifying dunks that helped make it special.

There were a few explosive dunks, and several posters were made. If these dunks were any indication of the things to come, the next few rounds should be filled with thrilling slams.
