Happy Thursday everyone, Today is the first day where all NBA Playoff Games are in the second round. From the way things are looking, it’s quite possible that the Eastern Conference series could be done well before the Western Conference. Furthermore, it’s also a bit surprising that the lower seeds, the No. 3 Celtics AND the No. 4 Heat are winning 2-0 in their matchups as we head into Game 3.
In the West, we finally get to see the start of their second round series as the rested Los Angeles teams get one step closer toward a potential Western Conference Finals matchup. But the Nuggets and Rockets, coming off seven-game series, are looking to thwart those plans.
Here are the games on for Thursday!
- East No. 2 Toronto Raptors vs. East No. 3 Boston Celtics, Game 3 — 6:30 p.m. ET, TNT (Celtics lead, 2-0)
- West No. 2 Los Angeles Clippers vs. No. 3 Denver Nuggets, Game 1 — 9 p.m. ET, TNT
Enjoy the basketball everyone!
