WELCOME Today’s NBA Playoffs 2018 postseason action presents a pivotal turning point in each Eastern Conference series and a possible last stand for a Western Conference mainstay.

2018 NBA Playoffs Bracket:
The stakes are even higher for the San Antonio Spurs, who face a perilous 3-0 deficit to the Golden State Warriors.
Below is all you need to know to watch the action, including live streaming links.
We officially have our first team in the second round of the NBA playoffs, after Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans completed a surprising sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers. The Pelicans could be joined by the Golden State Warriors, who have the opportunity to complete their own sweep against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday. Make sure you know how to watch every game online.
All the games will be carried on four TV channels — TNT, ESPN, ABC and NBA TV — and there are also plenty of streaming options for you cord-cutters out there (or those of you who just aren’t near a TV).
One win away from an emphatic sweep over the Spurs, the Warriors have hardly broken a sweat.
The champions have claimed each game by double digits. They have reached 110 points every time and limited the Spurs to 96.7 points per game with a ghastly 24.1 three-point percentage.
The Athletic’s Anthony Slater highlighted Golden State’s swift defensive turnaround following a sluggish end to the regular season:
For the second straight year, San Antonio is gravely missing Kawhi Leonard in what would be a dream matchup with both squads at 100 percent. Without their star forward, LaMarcus Aldridge is the only Spurs player who has registered more than 40 combined points through the first three games.
Golden State, meanwhile, is faring just fine without Stephen Curry. Backcourt mate Klay Thompson has picked up the slack by averaging 25.7 points per contest with a remarkable 13 three-point makes in 20 attempts. The shooting guard slowed down in Thursday’s 110-97 victory by only going 8-of-16 for 19 points.
Yet Kevin Durant has assumed Golden State’s headliner honors as Curry recovers from a knee injury. Last year’s NBA Finals MVP has resumed his playoff dominance by averaging 27.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 6.3 assists in the three triumphs.
The Spurs have given a valiant effort, but it’s just too hard to match up with the Warriors, even without their two-time MVP Stephen Curry. Golden State has raced out to a 3-0 lead in the series, and will look to close things out in Sunday’s Game 4.
Lacking the offensive firepower to keep up with Golden State, it’s looking like the Spurs might be playing their last game of the season on Sunday. If they can stave off elimination for one more game, the series would shift back to Oakland for Game 5.

A game that is all about Joel Embiid and how much his involvement warps this contest. Philadelphia haven’t played with their franchise centre since late March after he suffered an eye contusion but that didn’t stop them continuing to roll on a 17-game win streak that only ended two days ago.
Embiid pronounced himself “f***ing sick and tired of being babied” on Instagram after Game Two and though he is still doubtful when he does play we’ll see a different Philadelphia – even more dominant on defence but not as able to stretch the floor as they have been when Ersan Ilyasova has been on the floor.
Though Embiid will provide all sorts of challenges for Miami the Heat will at least be able to get more out of Hassan Whiteside, who has struggled to make any impact on a series where Philadelphia have spent so much of their time beyond the arc.
Prediction: Philadelphia had a particularly bad night shooting from beyond the arc, going seven-of-36, and it’s hard to see that lasting, just as one struggles to see Wade dropping 28 points in 26 minutes again. As such it’s the Sixers to back.
