9 Memorable NBA Playoff Blowouts

nba playoff blowouts - most lopsided playoff games
When the NBA playoffs roll around, you expect games to be a little closer than they might be in the regular season. Every game matters more, and every player should be playing like there’s no tomorrow. However, so far the 2013 NBA Playoffs have featured what seems like an inordinate number of blowouts. The Hawks beat the Pacers by 21, but then the Pacers turned around and beat the Hawks by 23. The Clippers beat the Grizzlies by 21, but then the Grizzlies turned around and beat the Clippers by 21. And of course, the Thunder beat the Rockets by 29, and then Spurs topped that by beating the Lakers by a whopping 31. And that was just the first round. In any case, in honor of all these playoff blowouts in this year’s NBA Playoffs, today we’re going to take a look at some of the most notable lopsided playoff games of all-time. Now, I say “most notable” because this isn’t just a list of the biggest margins of victory. That would actually be pretty boring, because you’d have a bunch of six-way ties and what not. Instead this list is just a glimpse at the playoff blowouts that were more memorable for one reason or another. Ready to get started? Good. Let’s get to it.
