Chicago, IL —

Derrick Rose, saddled with so many injuries in the regular season, is facing one more. His team's season changed in a hop. Rose tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee late in Chicago's 103-91 Game 1 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday afternoon and will miss the remainder of the playoffs. The reigning NBA MVP, who missed 27 games during the regular season with a litany of injuries, had to be helped off the court with 1:10 remaining after driving to a jump-stop in the lane and throwing a pass out to the right. He crawled slowly to the floor and was lying on his back, grasping at his knee for several minutes near the baseline before he was helped off. The tone of the game changed, as did the series when the Bulls announced hours later the extent of Rose's injury. Richard Hamilton scored 19 points, Luol Deng had 17 and Joakim Noah added 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls, who also had the No. 1 overall seed last year but were eliminated by the Heat in the Eastern Conference finals. Elton Brand had 19 points and seven rebounds to lead the Sixers. Jrue Holiday scored 16, Thaddeus Young added 13 and Turner had 12 points.

Final Score: Miami 100, New York 67

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Still searching for his first NBA championship, LeBron James opened the 2012 playoffs by scoring 32 points on just 14 shots and the Miami Heat dominated the New York Knicks, 100-67, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals on Saturday. James made 10 of his 14 field goal attempts and 11-of-14 free throws, Dwyane Wade scored 19 points and Mario Chalmers contributed 11 for the Heat, who won their fourth straight over New York to take the early advantage in the best-of-seven series. J.R. Smith led the way with 17 points off the bench for the Knicks, who committed 27 turnovers and 26 fouls. Carmelo Anthony scored 11 points with 10 rebounds but shot just 3-of-15 from the floor.

Final Score: Orlando 81, Indiana 77

Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Jason Richardson buried the go-ahead three-pointer, part of a run of 11 unanswered Magic points to the end the game, as Orlando rallied to take Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, 81-77, over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. Despite lacking the presence of three-time Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard -- sidelined with season-ending back surgery -- Orlando prevented Indiana from scoring in the game's final 4:05. Glen Davis had 16 points to go with 13 rebounds while Richardson and Jameer Nelson finished with 17 points apiece for the Magic, who have won five in a row at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Roy Hibbert's career-high nine blocks for Indiana tied for the second-most in NBA playoff history, and David West led all scorers with 19 points, but the Pacers missed their final nine shots to drop the first test in this best-of- seven series. Game 2 will take place on Monday.

Final Score: Oklahoma City 99, Dallas 98

Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) - Kevin Durant's go-ahead jumper with 1.5 seconds remaining lifted the Oklahoma City Thunder past the defending NBA-champion Mavericks, 99-98, in Game 1 of this Western Conference quarterfinal. After reigning NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki gave Dallas the lead with a pair of free throws with nine seconds remaining in the contest, Durant heaved a high-arcing, off-balance floater from the foul line over the outstretched arms of two Dallas defenders. The ball bounced high off the front of the rim, tantalizing the Oklahoma City faithful before hitting off the backboard and through the net, sending the jubilant home crowd into complete euphoria. Dallas, which was out of timeouts, could not get a shot off before the final buzzer. Durant finished the game with 25 points on 10-of-27 shooting to go with six rebounds and four blocks for the Thunder, who fell to the Mavericks in five games in last year's Western Conference Finals. Nowitzki netted 11 of his 25 points in the final five minutes to pace Dallas.
