Dallas Mavericks 70-108 Oklahoma City Thunder

As usual, it was the Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook show at the Chesapeake Energy Arena with the formidable duo dropping 47 points on an offensively timid Dallas Mavericks unit.

This was the franchise's most dominant postseason performance since moving to Oklahoma and Westbrook added 11 assists and five rebounds to his stat sheet on the night.

Dirk Nowitzki seemed to be the lone-gunner for the Mavericks. The legendary German posted 18 points, but the next highest scoring starter after the 13-time All Star was Wesley Matthews, with seven.

Boston Celtics 101-102 Atlanta Hawks

Jeff Teague steered the third-seeded Hawks to safety with a couple of free throws in the dying seconds to ensure the Hawks took advantage of their homecourt in Game One following a rip-roaring comeback from the Boston Celtics.

At half-time, the visitors were 24 points in the hole. Isaiah Thomas led the revival with 27 points and Jae Crowder posted another double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds.

However, Al Horford top-scored for Atlanta with 24, closely followed by Teague and Kent Bazemore, both with 23. The deficit proved too much for Boston to recover, but this series looks like it's going to be lively.

Houston Rockets 78-104 Golden State Warriors
