NBA Playoff Schedule For Weekend Released
The NBA Playoff schedule for this weekend has been released. After an eventful week that saw a potential player-led strike get averted, postseason basketball will return on Saturday.
First up, the two teams that sparked Wednesday’s big boycott, the Milwaukee Bucks and Orlando Magic, will take the floor for their Game 5 showdown. Milwaukee currently leads the series 3-1. The outing is scheduled to take place at 12:30 pm PT on ESPN.
Next up the Houston Rockets will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in their highly anticipated Game 5 match-up. Currently, the series is locked at two wins apiece. The showdown between James Harden and Chris Paul is set for 3:30 PT on TNT.
Finally, the day will close out with a battle between the Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers. The Damian Lillard-less Blazers are currently down 3-1 to LA, and will look to fend off elimination at 6 pm PT on TNT.
