The 2015 NBA Playoffs continue to chug along, and we’ve got four more games to look forward to this afternoon and evening. While we’re waiting, let’s check out some of the notable players and stats in the news.
Rockets-Mavericks: The Rockets have now opened up a 3-0 lead on the Mavericks, thanks to a brilliant effort by the ever-reliable James Harden in last night’s Game 3.
Harden put up 42 points, which was a career playoff-high, in Houston’s 130-128 victory. Dwight Howard also logged a playoff career-high with 26 rebounds.

Wizards-Raptors: Sitting pretty with a 3-0 series lead of their own are the Wizards, up three games on the Raptors thanks to a 106-99 Game 3 victory last night.
John Wall had a great game with 19 points and 15 assists in this one, while the 37-year-old Paul Pierce drilled a key 3-pointer in the closing seconds to preserve the victory.
Game 4 is tomorrow, and Washington can end the series with a sweep.
Spurs-Clippers: One series that’s a little tighter than those other two is the Spurs-Clippers matchup, which San Antonio leads 2-1 right now.
The Spurs got a big win last night in San Antonio, taking Game 3 100-73. Kawhi Leonard was the focal point here, posting a postseason career-high 32 points. The Spurs never trailed in this game.
