The first game of the second-round series between the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors did not disappoint. It had everything you could ask for: big performances from stars on each team, a controversial ejection involving Draymond Green and a dramatic ending that went right down to the wire.

In the end, the Warriors escaped with a 117-116 win, thanks to Klay Thompson's late 3-pointer and a missed layup by Ja Morant at the buzzer. And they did so despite Green playing just 17 minutes after he was ejected for a Flagrant 2 foul on Brandon Clarke -- a call that was upheld by the league on Monday. Can the Grizzlies get back into the series on Tuesday? Or will the Warriors take a 2-0 lead back to the Bay Area? Here's everything you need to know about Game 2:

Grizzlies: The Grizzlies lost Game 1 of their first-round series the Minnesota Timberwolves, but it won't be so easy to bounce back against the Warriors. They essentially now face a must-win in Game 2, as they cannot afford to be down 2-0 when the series shifts back to the Bay Area. In order to get the job done they'll need Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. to lead the way again, and will also need Desmond Bane to step up. The young swingman was terrific in the first round, but finished with just nine points on 3-of-10 shooting in Game 1.

Warriors: The Warriors got off to a rough start in Game 1, as they trailed by as much as 13 in the first half and lost Draymond Green to an ejection. They stormed back in the second half, however, thanks in large part to Jordan Poole, who continued his breakout campaign with 31 points. His ability to create and make shots takes so much pressure off the likes of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. Stealing Game 1 was a perfect result for the Warriors, and if they can get Game 2 as well they'll be in full control.

Prediction The Grizzlies have had a response for every bit of adversity they've faced this season, and it's hard to imagine that will stop now. They'll be extra motivated to defend home court and avoid a 2-0 deficit. Pick: Grizzlies +2

James Harden's shortcomings on display in 76ers' Game 1 loss, must find old form until Joel Embiid can return

The Philadelphia 76ers came into their second-round opener against the Miami Heat on Monday with one realistic avenue to victory: James Harden had to be the best player on the floor. Perhaps he didn't need to score 30 or 40 points, but he needed to be the best player on the floor, creating offense for himself and teammates at a dominant clip.

That didn't come close to happening. Harden finished with 16 points on 13 shots in Philadelphia's 106-92 defeat in Game 1. He tallied as many turnovers (five) as assists. Two possessions, which actually accounted for 40 percent of Harden made buckets, tell a pretty accurate tale of the uphill battle scoring has become for Harden, particularly against an elite defense.

With just under three minutes remaining in the first quarter, Harden found himself isolated on Tyler Herro at the top. As Mark Jones like to say, he played with his food for a few dribbles before hitting a step-back 3 to cut Miami's lead to seven.
