Lakers' disrespect for Jerry West, the NBA logo: It's horrible | MarcaPlayoffs – 2nd Round

East – Game 6:

  • Boston Celtics 95 – Philadelphia 76ers 86  (Series tied 3-3)

Highlights:  The Boston Celtics have forced a Game 7. It wasn’t easy, and it certainly wasn’t pretty, but the Celtics outlasted the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 6 on Thursday night, 95-86, to even the series at 3-3. The action will now shift back to Boston for a win-or-go-home showdown on Sunday. With their backs against the wall, the Celtics came out with all sorts of intensity on both sides of the ball, and had a double-digit lead after just a few minutes. They pushed the advantage to as much as 16 in the second quarter, but were unable to hold on to it for very long. The Sixers surged back into the game late in the second quarter, then took a slight lead heading into the fourth, which set up a fascinating finish. Read more at:  (Jack Maloney/CBS NBA)

West – Game 6:

  • Denver Nuggets 125 – Phoenix Suns 100  (DEN wins series 4-2)

Highlights:  The Phoenix Suns were absolutely embarrassed in a win-or-go-home Game 6 against the Denver Nuggets at Footprint Center on Thursday night. After the Suns were trailing 27-26 in the first quarter, the Nuggets went on a 17-0 run a never looked back en route to a 125-100 Western Conference semifinals-clinching win. In what almost felt like a repeat of last year’s Game 7 debacle at home against the Dallas Mavericks in the same round of the NBA playoffs, Phoenix’s biggest stars failed to show up.  The Suns trailed the Mavs by 30 at halftime in that game as well.
