Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - April 17, 2018 - 1:24:24

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver celebrate the opening weekend of the playoffs. First they react to the first two games of the Sixers-Heat series, including the best strategy for defending Ben Simmons, another stubborn masterpiece for Dwyane Wade, and what Philly might look like with Joel Embiid back in the lineup. Then they celebrate the arrival of another legendary Paul George nickname (17:00) and discuss the dynamics in OKC-Utah. From there it's onto Cleveland (22:00) where LeBron James was on autopilot and Victor Oladipo was a superstar. Then: Giannis Inc. hits hard times in Boston (37:00), Kawhi is the biggest story from Warriors-Spurs (45:00), and the Blazers-Pelicans series is as good as expected (55:00). At the end (62:00): Joel Embiid posts an Instagram story, the Wizards are circling the drain, and the Rockets look great and terrifying.
