Preview Roundups
April 20, 2017
Cleveland at Indiana 7:00 PM ET
Paul George is being vocal about his teammates but he clearly is the only player capable of keeping the Indiana Pacers in the best-of-seven first-round series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The All-Star forward will try to keep the seventh-seeded Pacers from falling behind 3-0 when they host the second-seeded Cavaliers on Thursday.
Toronto at Milwaukee 8:00 PM ET
The Milwaukee Bucks haven't won a playoff series since the 2000-01 campaign and can take another step toward ending their drought when they host the Toronto Raptors in Thursday's Game 3 of the Eastern Conference series. Milwaukee wrestled homecourt advantage away by winning the opener in Toronto but the Raptors regained momentum with a solid 106-100 victory in Game 2.
San Antonio at Memphis 9:30 PM ET
The San Antonio Spurs opened the Western Conference first-round series with impressive victories and aim to take a commanding 3-0 lead when they visit the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday. This might be Memphis' one chance to make it a series after the Grizzlies scored just 82 points in each of the defeats in San Antonio.
