Silk has his first playoff victory.
The Brooklyn Nets beat the Philadelphia 76ers 111-102 to steal game one of the opening round of the NBA playoffs. It was the Brooklyn's first road playoff victory since 2014.
D'Angelo Russell struggled early on, shooting just 2-11 in the first half. Russell, however, came out of the break firing, finishing with a team-high 26 points against Ben Simmons, his high school teammate. Teammate Caris Levert of Michigan scored 23 points.

The two teams will be back in action on Monday for game two.
