The NBA Playoffs continued on Thursday with two games.
At New York:
LeBron James scored 32 points as the Miami Heat smothered the New York Knicks 87-70 on the road in game three of their conference quarterfinal series for a commanding three-games-to-none series lead. The Knicks have now lost an NBA record 13 straight postseason contests. The Heat will go for the four-games series sweep in New York on Sunday afternoon.
Kevin Durant scored 31 points as the Oklahoma City Thunder find themselves one victory away from dethroning the defending champion Dallas Mavericks following their 95-79 road victory in game three of their first-round series, which the Thunder now lead three games to none. Oklahoma City can finish off the Mavericks with a win in Dallas on Saturday night.
