The NBA action was well under way on Wednesday night after another elimination was in play. The Miami Heat sealed a first round victory against the New York Knicks with a 94-106 victory winning the series 5-1. Despite a 35 point effort from Knick Carmelo Anthony, Lebron James led Miami with 29 points en route to round two showdown with the Indiana Pacers.
In the MTV News Hip-Hop playoffs the dominant Roc Nation crew defeated the upcoming talents of the A$AP Mob clan. Jay-Z, J. Cole and the rest of the promising roster cruised to victory with 76% of the votes against the Harlem based faction.
