It’s a Saturday TV quadruple-header for NBA fans. Two afternoon games in the East, two evening games in the West.
So far, there have been no shocking upsets in the NBA playoffs. The only home team that lost was Toronto, in overtime. That trend should continue tonight.
At last, real NBA basketball. After weeks of uncertainty in daily fantasy — who would start, who would rest, which teams cared — we have a quadruple-header with predictable rotations and maximum effort.
