Big night in the NBA playoffs

5/3/13 in NBA   |   droth   |   127 respect

But the Clippers are deep with talent and Chris Paul has the ability to take over a game like very few players do. And this series is destined to go seven games.  They went seven last year and they had the exact same record this year.  So basketball gods, I'm asking you, please extend this series for all of our sake.  

May 1, 2013; Oklahoma City, OK, USA; Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant (35) handles the ball against Houston Rockets forward Francisco Garcia (32) during the first half in game five of the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Smith-USA TODAY SportsThunder-Rockets:  Do the Rockets have any magic left?  Can the Thunder supporting cast finally support their star player?  It seems like Houston may have used up their good luck in game 5 and Vegas probably wouldn't like their chances too much if it went back to OKC for a game 7, but this game is in Houston so it should be a coin toss.

Jeremy Lin is coming back for tonight's game and the Toyota Center is going to be rocking.  But all of that will be for naught if Oklahoma City's role players step up.  Kevin Durant had 36-7-7 the other night (and only made one three pointer) but the Thunder need more out of Kevin Martin.  The former Rocket had three points in game five, shooting 1 of 10 from the field and missing on all five three point attempts.

I don't care who wins these games tonight and I can't wait to watch all four teams that are facing elimination fight for their seasons.  Someone's going to step up tonight and either save their team or put the nail in the coffin and I can't wait to find out who.
