The tripleheader of televised hoops begins at 1PM Eastern Time as the Oklahoma City Thunder will host the Houston Rockets on ABC TV. With injuries to Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka and Nick Collison the Thunder is in a race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The eight point loss at the Memphis Grizzlies was the team’s fourth in five games. The defense has been porous as the club has allowed 100 or greater points in seven of their past ten games. OKC holds a slim ½ game lead over the New Orleans Pelicans for the eighth seed. Houston is tied with Memphis for the second seed out west and that brings home court advantage in the first two rounds of the playoffs guaranteed. The Rockets are playing good basketball right now as they have won six of their past seven games after a seven point win at Dallas on Thursday. Returning to the Rockets lineup after a long absence is Dwight Howard who was healing from a knee injury. He has played less than 20 minutes in all four games Howard was back with the team.

In Game 2 it will be LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers playing host to the Chicago Bulls over on ABC TV at 3:30PM Eastern Time. With six games remaining the Cleveland Cavaliers hold a three game lead over the Chicago Bulls for the second seed in the East. The Cavs have won six of seven games entering play on Sunday afternoon. The Bulls have won six of eight games with the most wins coming against losing Eastern conference teams.

The action moves to NBA TV at 9:30PM Eastern Time as the LA Lakers will host the LA Clippers. The Clippers are down to their final six games of the regular season and trails the Memphis Grizzlies by two games for home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. They are on a back to back as they go to Denver on Saturday night. The Lakers have seven games remaining and trail the Sacramento Kings by six games to retain their first round pick and not lose it to Philadelphia. If LA finishes in the bottom five record wise during the regular season they can keep their first round draft pick.
