2013 NBA Playoffs nightly GIF recap: Heat, Knicks and Warriors win their Game 2s

Miss Tuesday's games? We have your GIFs right here.

Although each game had its moments of heated, close competition, each eventually spun out of control and resulted in double-digit wins for the Heat, Knicks and Warriors.

We begin with the Heat, who found themselves struggling against a scrappy Bucks team. LeBron almost got a technical, but explained that he was talking to himself and it all went away.

The Heat got a solid performance from Chris Andersen, too, including this block on Marquis Daniels ...

... which led to this celebration from the president of his fan club, or so we assume.

For much of this game, the Bucks hung around, refusing to go away and, at times, even leading. But a 12-0 Heat run to start the fourth quarter pretty much killed all hope. Whatever hope for Bucks fans that remained quickly evaporated after another one of those quintessential LeBron Yells. Miami would win, 98-86.

Meanwhile in New York, the Knicks battled the Celtics, who seemed poised to give the No. 2 team in the East a tough challenge. They did just that, at least for one half of basketball. The second half was an utter shame spiral for the boys in green.

Also, J.R. Smith had a fine game highlighted by this shot to beat the buzzer in the first quarter and the following celebration.

P Diddy seemed to enjoy the 87-71 Knicks win, though!

The Nuggets-Warriors game looked to be another close match after one quarter, but Golden State gradually built a strong lead that held through each Denver effort to claw back until they succumbed to a 131-117 defeat.

However, there were some exciting plays:

And to cap off the night, here's Harrison Barnes going to the rim and reversing the jam, which drives his teammates into crazed celebrations.
