Sunday was a busy day for Blue Devils in the NBA playoffs, starting with RJ Barrett and the New York Knicks.

Barrett had 14 points and 11 rebounds, which is impressive for a 6-6 wing. But he’s rebounded well all year.

Cam Reddish has been out for some time with an injury and so didn’t suit up for the Hawks.

In Philly, the 76ers opened their series against Washington with a 125-118 win. Seth Curry, who remember wasn’t drafted, has long since become valued for his shooting ability and is starting for the Sixers. He finished with 15 points, four boards and two steals.

And out West, Quin Snyder’s Utah Jazz matched up with the Memphis Grizzlies and Memphis pulled off an upset, winning 112-109. However, star guard Donovan Mitchell didn’t play.

For the Grizzlies, Tyus Jones scored six points and Grayson Allen had five against the team that drafted him out of Duke.

On Monday, Austin Rivers and the Denver Nuggets go into Game 2 against Harry Giles and the Portland Trailblazers. Game’s at 10:00 EST.
