The playoffs are heating UP! Hit the jump for recaps and previews!

RECAPS

#7 Bulls 121, #2 Celtics 118 (2OT)
This series might be the most exciting of them all. It's all tied up at 2-2.

#1 Cavs 99, #8 Pistons 78
Finally. The worst team in the playoffs has been eliminated. After 3 games, they should have just used the mercy rule and sent the Pistons home. Big changes in Detroit this offseason? The King moves on. Will anyone stop this steamroll?

#3 Magic 84, #6 76ers 81
Hedo Turkoglu. 3 pointer with 1.1 seconds to go. Big shot by a guy who wasn't shooting so well the entire series. That's shooter's confidence for you.

WHAT'S ON TAP?

The Heat and Nuggets can both take commanding 3-1 leads but the Hornets and Hawks look to even up each series at 2 with wins. The Lakers can join the Cavaliers as the 2nd team to make it through to the second round.

#4 Hawks @ #5 Heat, 5pm TNT
I don't think Dwyane Wade lets the Heat lose at home. But Atlanta has shown to be resilient in the playoffs so you could see a big bounceback game and perhaps Joe Johnson shows up.

#2 Nuggets @ #7 Hornets, 5:30pm NBA TV
CP3 is all the Hornets have going for them right now. He's killing it but can only do so much. If the Nuggets are serious contenders, they're going to have to show they can win on the road. Tonight is a big test.

#8 Jazz @ #1 Lakers, 7:30pm TNT
Good night Utah. Go fishin'. Links

Blog Battle: SLC Dunk (Jazz) vs Silver Screen and Roll (Lakers)

 

#1 Sharks @ #8 Ducks, 7:30pm Versus
Will the most successful major Bay Area sports team fall victim to 8 seed? If they do, it will take a long time for anyone to care about the Sharks again since they barely care about the Sharks now. But this is the game I'm most excited about watching.
