NBA’s blowout extravaganza among four such days in playoff history


Sunday was a rare day in NBA history.

That’s a great thing for MiamiSan Antonio and the Los Angeles Clippers. Not so much for CharlotteMemphis and Portland.

Of the four games played Sunday in the NBA playoffs, three were blowouts decided by 20 points or more — the Heat’s 123-91 win over the Hornets, the Spurs’ 106-74 victory vs. the Grizzlies and the Clippers’ 115-95 defeat of the Trail Blazers.

According to Stats LLC, it was only the fourth such day in NBA playoff history and the first since May 8, 1999, when the New York Knicks beat Miami by 20, Atlanta downed Detroit by 20, and Utah topped Sacramentoby 30.
