The high seeds kept right on rolling on Day 2 of the NBA playoffs on Sunday, running the favorites' record to a perfect 8-0 thus far.
Paul George posted a triple-double against the Atlanta Hawks, announcing his arrival as a legitimate superstar and getting his Indiana Pacers off to a dominant start.
Then, Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs forced the Los Angeles Lakers reserves to try to win Game 1 from the perimeter. Let's just say that proved to be a shrewd strategy.
Later on, the Miami Heat coasted to a decisive win against a clearly overmatched Milwaukee Bucks squad. LeBron James hardly broke a sweat and still threatened to notch the day's second triple-double.
And in the nightcap, the Oklahoma City Thunder proved that they could do everything the fast-breaking Houston Rockets could—only better.
The stars shined and the league's top teams imposed their wills in an action-packed Sunday slate that gave fans everything they could have asked for from the opening weekend of the 2013 NBA postseason.
