The 2012 NBA Playoffs continue on Saturday evening with two games on the slate. The two series are just a bit different, as one series is getting started in the second round of the playoffs while the other has been pushed to a Game 7 and the winner moves on to the next round.
Here's the NBA schedule for Saturday:
Philadelphia 76ers Vs. Boston Celtics, 8 p.m. ET, TNT: The Celtics and the 76ers kick off the first series of the second round on Saturday evening. Philadelphia squeaked by a banged up Bulls team and will head to Boston to take on the gritty Celtics. Boston finished off a six-game series against the Atlanta Hawks and looked a bit worn out coming off the court after the series winning victory. The 76ers will look to tire out the Celtics while Boston will try to grind it out with the 76ers and go for one last title run.
Denver Nuggets Vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT: The Nuggets have momentum heading into Game 7 after tying the series, 3-3, and rallying back from a 3-1 deficit. The Lakers haven't been able to finish in the past two games and struggled in Game 6 with Kobe Bryant dealing with a stomach flu. The final game of the series heads back to Los Angeles, where the Lakers hope to rebound from back-to-back losses and finally close out the series, but the Nuggets have all the momentum.
