4 NBA games on tap tonight, Grizzlies try to advance

UNDATED (AP) - There are four NBA playoff games tonight and in three of the games the visiting team can clinch the series with a victory. In Boston it'll be game six for the Celtics and Knicks, who lead 3-2. The Hawks are home to the Pacers, who enter the game on top by the same 3-2 margin and Oklahoma City takes a 3-2 advantage to Houston in game six of that best of seven series.

 

James Harden of the Rockets is expected to play despite having been diagnosed with strep throat. Harden had what the team called flu-like symptoms on Wednesday, but scored 31 points to lead the Rockets to a 107-100 win in Game 5.

 

In the final game of the night the Grizzlies can finish off the Clippers in Memphis. After losing the first two games of the series in L.A, the Grizzlies have won three straight.

 

The Clippers' Blake Griffin is still limping with a sprained right ankle and will be a game-time decision. Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro (NAY'-groh) says Griffin will warm up to before the game to see how effective he might be, before a decision is made. Griffin didn't play the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's 103-93 loss to Memphis.
