The Miami Heat, Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder can all advance to the next round of the playoffs with Game 5 victories this evening.
The Heat and Thunder, well, those were to be expected all along despite the Sixers's unforeseen resurgence under new coach Doug Collins and the Nuggets post-Melo resilience. But the Grizzlies taking No. 1 seed San Antonio Spurs down, well, that would almost be worth checking out during an NHL Game Seven TV timeout, wouldn't it?
Heat/Sixers tipped off just after 7 p.m. eastern. Grizzlies/Spurs is scheduled for 8:30 p.m., with the Thunder/Nuggets game starting an hour later.
