A tripleheader of Game 3s tonight. While most sports fans were probably focused on the NFL draft, I was interested in the actual sporting events being shown on TV, and those were the NBA playoffs.
The Miami Heat looked to have won their first game and got right back into the series but then "Mr. Big Shot 2.0" Paul Pierce hit a game winner. Pierce can still be deadly in this league, even if he isn't the feared scorer he once was.
The San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks had another thriller it what it without question the most exciting and competitive series so far. The Spurs pulled off the W, but they still need to win Game 4.
Lastly, the Jazz ran the Nuggets out of the building. Denver needs to get back on track and fast if they want to advance.moreless
