Recapping the Jazz/Mavericks, Timberwolves/Grizzlies, 76ers/Raptors, and Warriors/Nuggets Game 1s in depth, along with some quick day 2 notes, and hockey talk.

Timestamps Approximate

We kick off Talkin' Hockey (01:58) discussing a good week for the Leafs, and a comparison of Tim Stuhzle to a young Nazem Kadri

Our NBA Playoff Recap begins with the Jazz Mavericks (08:03) game that saw the Jazz pull out the win in a defensive slugfest off a hot second half from Donovan Mitchell

We then talk Max's favourite of the day the Timberwolves Grizzlies (14:09) game that saw nonstop back and forth highlight offensive action led by Anthony Edwards and Ja Morant.

Our hometown Raptors (21:45) drop game 1 to the 76ers, we discuss what is and isn't possible to improve from that performance to give us a shot at the series

For the Nuggets Warriors (25:18), after splashing around at the Poole party we wonder if it's too early to call the series after 1 game of seeing Nikola Jokic try and match an entire Death Star's worth of offence.

A little at the end (31:25) about the Heat/Hawks and Celtics/Nets games
