NBA: Playoffs-Denver Nuggets at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Another exciting evening of NBA Playoffs Basketball is ahead, with the Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns, and Denver Nuggets in play. This is your place to chat and/or comment about it with fellow Blazer’s Edge Readers.

Here is the schedule and TV information.

Philadelphia 76ers at Atlanta Hawks

4:30 PM, Pacific Time on ESPN TV

The series is tied at 1-1. Atlanta took the first game 128-124 with hot three-point shooting and 35 points from guard Trae Young. This allowed them to overcome a blistering 39 from Philadelphia center Joel Embiid. Embiid upped his production even further in Game 2, scoring 40. That and even hotter three-point shooting from Philly allowed them to even the series with a 118-102 victory.

Phoenix Suns at Denver Nuggets

7:00 PM, Pacific Time on ESPN TV

Phoenix leads 2-0 in this series. In Game 1 they held NBA MVP Nikola Jokic to 22 points while putting four starters over the 20-point mark themselves, winning 122-105. Defense came into play in Game 2, as Phoenix held Denver to 40% shooting from the field, 33% from the three-point arc, blowing them out 123-98.

Feel free to discuss both games, or anything else on your mind this evening, right here. Please remember that Blazer’s Edge is a non-profanity site.
