2013 NBA Playoffs nightly GIF recap: Grizzlies and Hawks dominate, Bulls and Thunder win nail-biters

Missed Saturday night's NBA action? Catch up with all the .GIFS.

Saturday's NBA action gave us two big comebacks -- one successful, the other not quite -- and two plain old blowouts. First, the Nets and Bulls squared off in their Game 4. Initially, it seemed like Nate Robinson's most significant contribution would be this incredibly stupid fight with C.J. Watson...

...or maybe getting lit up by this Gerald Wallace pick...

After all, if Brook Lopez is draining threes, you're probably not going to beat the Nets:

Brooklyn was up big and rolling. But then Watson bricked a wide-open dunk...

...and things suddenly turned. Nate exploded in the fourth quarter, scoring 23 points on wild buckets like this one:

Joe Johnson wouldn't let Nate just steal the game, though. ISO Joe helped push this thing to multiple overtimes:

It got pretty intense for the fans in the building:

Well, not all the fans:

But Chicago pulled it off.

The next two games were blowouts, with Memphis rolling over Los Angeles and the Hawks destroying the Pacers in Atlanta. David West wasn't enjoying himself in that one, and he decided to take his frustration out on Al Horford:

West took it out on some gum, too. Poor gum:

Over in Houston, the Thunder started hot and dominated early. Kevin Durant made several plays that looked like this:

The Thunder also did their best to retaliate for Russell Westbrook's season-ending injury. Kendrick Perkins immediately hit the perpetrator, Patrick Beverley, with a hard pick:

And later, Kevin Durant gave Jeremy Lin the "strip while you're trying to call a timeout" treatment:

The Rockets made a big comeback with plays like this marvelous James Harden pass in transition:

...but in the end, KD and his best friend, the rim, ruled the day:

A fine Saturday of basketball.
