The NBA playoff action on Friday night gets underway at 8PM Eastern Time as the Boston Celtics will face the Philadelphia 76ers in game four of their best of seven series over ESPN TV. The Philadelphia 76ers is trending fairly well against Boston in their head to head meetings at home. Heading into game three the Philadelphia 76ers has covered four straight pointspreads against Boston. After looking horrid offensively in their opening round series against the Chicago Bulls the Sixers have shown improvement with nearly 44% shooting in game one and 41% in their game two win. It has been a tough postseason for Boston veteran Paul Pierce as he has shot just 39.8% from the field heading into game three. Philadelphia was fortunate to earn the game two win as Louis Williams and Thaddeus Young combined for just 3 of 16 from the field.

The nightcap on ESPN will begin at 10:30PM Eastern Time as Oklahoma City will be the road team as they face the LA Lakers in game three of their NBA playoff series. The Thunder and Lakers will play on back to back nights as the teams will hook up for game four on Saturday night. The Lakers need to find a way to match up with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant if they have any chance to extend this series. Oklahoma City ran the Lakers off the court in game one as they posted 119 points. OKC has been extremely sharp offensively as they lead all playoff teams heading into Tuesday night’s action with 103.6 points per game and the club has shot 48.1% from the field. Of the 16 teams that made the playoffs in 2011-12 season the Lakers are ranked 14th in defense allowing 99.5 points per game. The LA defensive field goal percentage of 44.2% is 11th worst among the 16 playoff participants and the worst of any of the 8 teams left in the playoffs. Those numbers point to a short series and a quick exit for LA Lakers.
