NBA Playoffs 2024: Denver Nuggets beat LA Lakers, New York Knicks shock Philadelphia 76ers to take lead in Seven-Game Series in round one of Postseason

NBA Playoffs The 2024 games started with the Cleveland Cavaliers taking on the Orlando Magic. Donovan Mitchell scored 30 points, while Evan Mobley put together a double-double performance for the home team as the Cavs defeated Magic 97-83 at Rocket-Mortgage FieldHouse Arena. Next up from the east was the New York Knicks hosting the Philadelphia 76ers in ‘the garden’. Josh Hart led the team with 22 points and 13 rebounds. Jalen Brunson also scored 22 points in his team’s 111-104 win over the 76ers. Joel Embiid (29 points) and Tytrese Maxey (33 points) did their best to reduce the lead. From the Western Conference, it was last season’s finale, as defending champion Denver Nuggets welcomed play-in tournament winners Los Angeles Lakers. But the result in the first game looked familiar as Nikola Jokic (32 points, 12 rebounds) and Jamal Murray (22 points, 10 assists) went all in and Anthony Davis’ Lakers (32 points, 14 rebounds) held in the Ball Arena. Minnesota Timberwolves dismantled the Phoenix Suns to start the 2024 NBA postseason. Toronto Raptors player Jontay Porter banned from NBA for life for violating the league’s gambling rules.
