NBA Playoffs Pre-Gamin’: 76ers at Heat (6:30 CT) and Mavericks at Suns (9:00 CT)

Chicago Bulls

The Suns and Heat will be looking to regain control of their series tonight after the top seeds dropped a pair of road games to their opponents.

Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Heat

Eastern Conference Semi-Finals: Game 5

The Miami Heat will return the South Beach after squandering a 2-0 lead in the series to the Philadelphia 76ers, who won both games in Philly this weekend. They’ll also be without Kyle Lowry, who will be sidelined with a hamstring injury. Miami laid an egg in Game 3 and then couldn’t overcome James Harden’s big fourth-quarter performance in Game 4 on Sunday night. Now they’ll be looking to regain control in the series at home.
