Also thanks to a brilliant Dennis Schröder, the Oklahoma City Thunder prevailed in the NBA playoffs on Saturday against the Houston Rockets and reduced to 1: 2. The Lakers could rely on their superstars for their success against Portland, Miami is clearly on course against Indiana.

The Thunder turned a 3-0 deficit in the third duel with the Rockets and won 119: 107 after extra time. Schröder delivered a strong 29 points, five rebounds, and five assists, Chris Paul came in on 26.

The Rockets, in which James Harden was the top scorer with 38 points, as usual, missed the start of overtime after a previously highly dramatic final phase, in which they missed their first seven throws. For Harden, the game was over at the beginning of the extra time after his sixth foul. Game 4 rises on Monday. When the injured Russell Westbrook will be back with the Rockets is not yet certain. Most recently he had already denied throwing training.

LeBron and AD get rolling – Miami just before the sweep


The Los Angeles Lakers have taken back command of the series against Portland after losing in Game 1. Thanks to their two superstars LeBron James (38 points, twelve rebounds, eight assists) and Anthony Davis (29 points, eleven rebounds, eight assists) and strong defensive performance, the favorite prevailed against the Trail Blazers with 116: 108. The top-seeded Lakers in the west lead in the series – just like their eastern counterpart Milwaukee against Orlando – now 2-1. Portland, for which Damian Lillard scored 34 points and Carmelo Anthony contributed 20, has a chance to equalize in Game 4 on Monday.

Only one win for the next round is missing for the Miami Heat, which also won the third comparison with the Indiana Pacers. In the 124: 115 success on Saturday, all starters scored double-digit points, Jimmy Butler, the best with 27 points.
