NBA: Phoenix Suns at Boston Celtics Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Suns fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

The NBA playoffs may only be in the second round, but there have already been a list of amazing moments. Ironically, according to fans, some of the best moments actually came from players no longer in the bubble.

According to SB Nation’s Reacts survey, two of the three biggest stars of the first round games were sent home. Only Denver’s Jamal Murray survived and advanced.

Similarly, the best on-court moment came from a team that has already left the bubble. Nearly two-thirds of fans said the best moment was Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic hitting a game winning shot in Game 4 against the Los Angeles Clippers. That was the highlight of the Mavericks playoff series, which they lost 4-2.

As for those teams still playing, nearly half of all fans said the Boston Celtics looked the best. The Celtics swept the Philadelphia 76ers in their first-round series. They slightly edged out the Miami Heat, who also earned a first-round sweep.
