NBA playoffs schedule for Wednesday, April 24

* All times Eastern

Harrell sails it over Draymond at poster

The Clippers desperately want to extend this series and they do a good job so far in Game 5. Since Los Angeles carried a 104-94 leader over Golden State into the fourth quarter, Montrezl Harrell made it to dump it over Draymond Green before the quarter stopped.

Sweet Lou scores 18 points in the first half

The Clippers held an eight-point lead at half-time over Warriors in Game 5 and largely due to Lou Williams. The sixth man extraordinaire scored 18 points in the opening half.

Beverley puts almost twice in the first half

I don’t think anyone expected this. When the warriors appeared to shut off Clippers in Game 5, they struggled to do so, as they were very played in the second quarter. Clippers took 71-63 over the Warriors in half time after Patrick Beverley almost set up a double-double (14 points, nine rebounds).

Warrior points 41 points in first quarter against Clippers

If you thought this game would not be high rated, you could not be more wrong. The winners ended with 41-37 management over Clippers in the first quarter, highlighted by Kevin Durant’s 12 points and Stephen Curry’s 10 points during the opening season.

Harden leads the rockets to serial club victory

while it was not his best effort, the Rockets star James Harden did enough to lead the Rockets to the Western Conference semifinals on Wednesday night after completing the statute in Houston’s 100-93 victory.

Paul is putting great effort into the rockets [19659006] Chris Paul had to fight for the early unfortunate problems, but in the end he left his mark on the match between Rockets and Jazz on Wednesday night by finishing the series-clinching win by 15 points to follow with eight rebounds and five assists.

Harden comes up with clutch stealing

James Harden is not known for his defense, but he did the big game at that end of the floor during the last few seconds of Wednesday night’s game 5 to help his team finish the Utah Jazz and continue to the second round.

Gordon goes glass from 3

Jazz does everything they can to get the ball out of James Hardens hands and sometimes it means giving open shots to other players. Eric Gordon got one of those open looks, and launched an instant 3 knocking in from the top of the key.

Harden goes up to Capela

James Harden led the league in the score this season, but he is also a huge playmaker. One of his favorite games is to run in and throw up a lob to Clint Capela, as he did in Game 5.
