Pacers 101, Raptors 83 (Series tied 3-3)

Behind a 21-point, 11-rebound double-double from Paul George, the Indiana Pacers took care of the Toronto Raptors in Indy on Friday night. Well, took care of enough to force a Game 7 and avoid elimination from the 2016 Playoffs. Myles Turner added 15 points, and Monta Ellis contributed 14 in the crucial win for the Pacers who trailed by double-digits earlier in the game. An 18-0 run (as seen up top) to come back sure didn’t hurt.

Heat 97, Hornets 90 (Series tied 3-3)

Despite 37 points from Kemba Walker in Buzz City, the Miami Heat stayed alive in Game 6 on Friday night. Dwyane Wade was super clutch, finishing with 23 points and this dagger in the fourth:

Luol Deng finished with 21 points, and Goran Dragic added 15 in the Heat’s win on the road.

Trail Blazers 106, Clippers 103 (Portland wins series 4-2)

With no lead extending beyond 7 points, this Game 6 in Portland was clearly a close one. It went down to the wire, with a handful of free throws sealing the deal at the very last second. Damian Lillard finished with 28 points for the Blazers, winning the series 4-2 and knocking out the Clippers from the Playoffs.
