The first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs is drawing to a close. Friday night will feature four games, all of which are elimination games. It’s win-or-go-home time for four teams. You either force game 7 or begin your summer holidays tonight. If that doesn’t make for a good night of NBA basketball, I don’t know what does. Here are tonight’s matchups:

New York Knicks – Boston Celtics

The Celtics have avoided elimination twice and the Knicks are certainly not happy about that. New York collectively dressed in black for game 5, as a symbol of Boston’s funeral. The funeral was delayed, as the Celtics got up from their graves and slapped the Knicks on their home floor. For game 6, Boston is back home and will look to force game 7.

Indiana Pacers – Atlanta Hawks

The Pacers are obviously favorites here, but the Hawks are yet to drop a game at home, winning games 3 and 4 in this series. Indiana has struggled away from home, but the exceptional play of Paul George could very well end Atlanta’s season on Friday.

Oklahoma City Thunder – Houston Rockets

It’s understandable that the Thunder are demoralized. Russell Westbrook is out for the playoffs and it’s not easy to stop questioning your own ability in this situation. After jumping out to a 3-0 start, the Thunder dropped two in a row and are looking a bit shaky.

Los Angeles Clippers – Memphis Grizzlies

The Clippers are facing elimination and Blake Griffin is a game-time decision with a moderate ankle sprain. Add the fact that the game will be played in Memphis and it is clear that L.A. will need a huge dose of CP3 to stay alive.
