The NBA Playoffs tonight actually feature four games. "Our back against the wall, it was the only way to come back was to have that mindset", George said.

Still trailing in the series 3-2, the Thunder will have their work cut out for them if they're to get the series back to Oklahoma City. The game was tight all the way through, but the Raptors outscored the Wizards by nine points in the fourth quarter.

The Wizards fought for most of this game but were unable to pull away when it mattered most.

Domantas Sabonis powered the Pacers with 22 points and five rebounds from the bench. However, he turned the ball over seven times. Westbrook scored a playoff career-high 20 points in the frame.

The Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Indiana Pacers at home in an absolute thriller. The Pacers clawed all the way back, tying the game at 95. LeBron subsequently showed the world why he is one of the GOATs, burying a three as time expired. Game 6 should be a chippy, insane spectacle.

But if there are aspects of the game that can be carried over into the next one, it's perhaps the shot of confidence that Westbrook injected directly into himself and his team. Not only that, but 5-of-9 from three-point range is just what the doctor ordered.

The Indiana Pacers played an abysmal game.

The point is, Brown, general manager Bryan Colangelo and the players will figure it out and fold in the newbies like they are their own.

"Do we want this?" he asked. Victor Oladipo had an absolutely awful game.

Melo discusses the incident after the game: "My competitive nature just took over at that point, wanting to be a part of that atmosphere".

On Friday, Game 6 is played in Salt Lake City.

The sides will now head to Utah for Saturday's game six.

Through two and a half quarters, this series looked over.

How did suspense suddenly creep into a series in which the Jazz controlled and held in their overachieving hands? They weren't thrilled. Russell Westbrook went.

"A 20-point lead in the National Basketball Association is not safe, (and) especially against guys like Russell Westbrook and Paul George", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said, according to the Tulsa World.

Gobert has arguably been the defining player of the series, keeping Westbrook from the rim throughout the first round. That does not make for a good point guard. He has had a double-double in each as he has gotten more aggressive on the glass. That led Crowder to be upset and look for Westbrook.

Utah's rookie of the year candidate Donavan Mitchell was excellent again, dropping 23 points, while forward Jae Crowder had his best ever playoff game scoring 27 bench points.

You can see it in the way they play, even on off nights like the close-out Game 5 over a tough and physical Heat group. They have less lockdown shooters than the Rockets, Warriors, and Jazz.

They ended the game on a 61-28 run. Harden poured in 24 points with 12 assists, while Capela exploded for 26 points and 15 rebounds. "Play as a team and get a win".

"Every game's been physical", Gobert said to reporters. Westbrook and PG took the Thunder past the finish line with some awesome shot-making as the fourth quarter was winding down.
