Wizards 93 -  Raptors 86 Coach Cal took Drake's seats to watch John Wall and Zard Nation steal Game 1 in overtime on the road in Toronto.  Wall didn't have his best shooting day, going 5-18 from the field and missing a game-winner as time expired in regulation, but he flirted with a triple-double with 10 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds.  Patrick Patterson had a decent day, getting 10 points and grabbing 5 boards for former Cat Dwane Casey.  If you were wondering, Chuck Hayes did not play. Bulls 103 - Bucks 91 My main man Nazr Muhammad didn't get any PT, but his Bulls got the Dub. Warriors 106  -  Pelicans 99 Anthony Davis was pretty average for three quarters, until Anthony Davis decided to start being Anthony Davis.  His 20 4th quarter points are a career-high in a quarter.  He finished with 35 points, 7 boards, and 4 blocks.  If you don't know, now ya know.  But if ya wanna know more about his awesome playoff debut, scroll down to the story a linked from USA Today. Rockets 118  -  Mavericks 108  [caption id="attachment_177610" align="alignnone" width="359"]Karen Warren | Houston Chronicle Jones bowls over Rajon Rondo to get to the basket for the layup.  (Karen Warren | Houston Chronicle)[/caption] The Real T. Jones had a REALLY good night for the Rockets, helping Houston win Round 1 of the Battle for Texas.  In 34 minutes, Jones had 19 points, second only to James Harden's 24.  He earned many from the charity stripe, going 7-11, while scooping 9 rebounds and dishing out 6 assists.  Rajon Rondo didn't play up to par, only handing out 5 assists and failing to grab a rebound, areas he usually dominates during the playoffs.  Rondo scored 15 points on 7-16 shooting.
