The Cleveland Cavaliers will try and take a commanding lead in their series against the Washington Wizards on Thursday. The Cavaliers did as expected at home, winning the first two games. Now it will be up to Washington to answer. The series has been very physical so far and that may not change on Thursday.
The Phoenix Suns will try and bounce back from a heart-breaking loss in game one to the San Antonio Spurs as the teams meet for game two on Tuesday night. The Suns had the Spurs on the ropes a few times in game number one but couldn’t put them away and ended up losing in double overtime. “We didn’t catch a bullet,” Phoenix head coach Mike D’Antoni said. “They dodged a bullet.”
The Utah Jazz will look to take a commanding lead tonight in their Western Conference playoff series against the Houston Rockets. The Jazz won game one on Saturday 93-82 and if they win tonight in Houston the series will be effectively over considering the Jazz would be returning home where they have the NBA’s best record.
The Utah Jazz will try and clinch home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs as they travel to San Antonio on Wednesday. The Jazz have not had much success at San Antonio in the past though. The game means a lot to the Jazz since getting home court advantage in the first round would be huge. The Jazz have the best record in the NBA at home but they are just 17-23 on the road.

The Mavericks and Lakers are very happy to see two of their top players return to the lineup. Dirk Nowitzki of the Mavericks and Pau Gasol of the Lakers both returned on Wednesday and the Mavericks and Lakers both got wins.
