April 28, 2013; Oakland, CA, USA; Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry (30) celebrates after making a basket against the Denver Nuggets during the third quarter in game four of the first round of the 2013 NBA playoffs at Oracle Arena. The Warriors defeated the Nuggets 115-101. Mandatory Credit: Kyle Terada-USA TODAY SportsGame 5s are huge games, and we have two of them tonight. The Warriors -- the only Western Conference underdog winning its series -- are trying to close out the Nuggets in Denver, and the Clippers are returning to Los Angeles as they try to take a 3-2 lead over the Memphis Grizzlies. 

Here, AJ_88 outlines some of the keys to the Clippers gaining the upper hand tonight. Los Angeles will likely need a big game out of the best player on the court, Chris Paul. Paul was the hero in Game 2, but since then, the Clippers lost twice in Memphis. 

As for the Golden State-Denver series. Stephen Curry has been completely dominant since the Warriors lost All-Star David Lee in Game 1. In fact, they are 3-0 without Lee. This game is back in Denver, and the Warriors would love not to have to travel back to Golden State to close out the Nuggets. 

Now, to the games!
