NBA Playoffs Open Thread Day 12

These playoffs have been like basketball crack.  Last night, the Thunder and Grizzlies went to their fourth straight overtime game. FOUR STRAIGHT OVERTIMES.  That's insane, especially since Memphis blew a 20 point lead in the second half.  Oklahoma City almost won too, with Serge Ibaka putting back a miss by Kevin Durant at the buzzer, but unfortunately for him and OKC, it was just barely in his hands as the clock expired.  This series literally could not be any closer.

For tonight we have a couple of other tied series with San Antonio-Dallas and Toronto-Brooklyn, as well as the Trail Blazers trying to close out the Houston Rockets in Houston in yet another series that has gone to the wire repeatedly with three OTs in four games.

Tonight's schedule:

#1 San Antonio Spurs vs. #8 Dallas Mavericks Game 5 (Series tied 2-2) at 4:00 PM on TNT

#3 Toronto Raptors vs. #6 Brooklyn Nets Game 5 (Series tied 2-2) at 4:30 PM on NBA TV

#4 Houston Rockets vs. #5 Portland Trail Blazers Game 5 (Blazers up 3-1) at 6:30 PM on TNT
