The 2015 NBA Playoffs kicked off this weekend in a major way. The league's top 16 teams started their hunt for the Larry O'Brien NBA Championship Trophy and basketball bragging rights for the rest of the year.
Stephen Curry and the Western conference's #1 seeded Golden State Warriors dusted off the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday to take a 1-0 series lead, and LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics on Sunday.
The action continues tonight and will run all the way to June when the last two teams standing will face-off in the NBA Finals.
We'll be tuned in to all the action on the court, but the team here at MTV News were curious about what goes on behind-the-scenes in the locker room, too. So we reached out to the NBA and asked the league what songs players are listening to in order to get pumped for the game, and here's what we found.
