Scotiabank Arena, 9am AEST
What a series this has been so far! The 76ers looked as though they might pull off the sweep when they led 3-0, but the determined Raptors have won two on the spin and return home with the goal in mind of making it 3-3. Pascal Siakam was the best player on the floor with 23/10/7 in Game 5, while Joel Embiid only managed 20 points for the 76ers.
Both teams have been healthy for the most part during this series, but the starters for each unit logged big minutes last game. Matisse Thybulle will be on the sidelines for the 76ers in Game 6, while Fred VanVleet has been upgraded to questionable as he aims a return from injury.
No team in NBA history has come from 3-0 down in a playoff series to win, but the Raptors are a chance to defy history should they win the next two games. I absolutely loved what I saw from them on the defensive end in Game 5 and now that they’re back on their home deck, I expect them to extend this series to seven games.
Smoothie King Center, 9:30am AEST
The Suns and the Pelicans have traded wins through five games in this series, meaning the #1 seed Suns currently lead 3-2. Chris Paul led from the front in the Suns’ Game 5 win with 22 points and 11 assists, but it was Mikal Bridges who earned the game ball with his 31 points and four blocks. The Suns won the game 112-97 and look determined to knock the #8 Pelicans off.
The Suns have been without Devin Booker for Games 3-5 after he strained his right hamstring in Game 2 of this series, but there’s talk that he has the potential to return for Game 6 on Friday. For the Pelicans, they remain fully healthy besides the obvious out in Zion Williamson.
The winner of Game 5 in a 2-2 series has won over 80% of the time in NBA history and I’m expecting the odds to favour the Suns again here. They made some fruitful adjustments to their rotation last time out that seemed to catch the Pelicans off guard. I expect them to be able to close out the series here, with out without Booker.
Vivint Arena, 12pm AEST
The Mavericks turned this series on its head when they managed to win Game 2 at home without Luka Doncic and bettered that when they were able to tie the series at 2-2 without the superstar. Doncic returned in Game 5 and did usual Luka things, dropping a thirty piece on the Jazz on the way to a very easy win for the Mavericks.
Doncic got through Game 5 unscathed and will be fit and firing for Game 6, which might not be the case for Jazz superstar Donovan Mitchell who’s under an injury cloud after an incident last outing. However, he’s still listed as likely to play in this one.
The Jazz look to be in all sorts on the offensive end and it’s hard to see them being able to fix all their problems in a couple of days. With Doncic and Brunson both firing on all cylinders, I find it very, very hard to not take the Mavericks to win this game and the series as a result.
