28 April 28 - San Antonio Spurs @ Dallas Mavericks

Playing Samuel Dalembert during the big game # 3 has attracted much attention from his teammates as opposing coaches. If Samuel Dalembert had to maintain this level of play, it will be an important asset in the playoffs Dallas. As for Cory Joseph of San Antonio, he has not had the opportunity to play often, but his coach Gregg Popovich could turn to the native of Pickering, ON, to turn his team is falling behind in the series .

April 30 - Brooklyn Nets @ Toronto Raptors

Our Canadian team in the NBA has had to deal with injuries, drought-throw performance and luster without key players, but still managed to tie the series at 2-2. The Raptors will return home for the 5 th game. DeMar DeRozan maintains an average of 12 tentatoves free throws per game, the first row for the series. Brooklyn certainly want to win after losing the match # 4 in the hands of Raptors, thus giving Toronto its first victory on the road in the playoffs in 13 years . A win at Air Canada Centre would give the Nets an excellent chance to end the series at the Barclays Center.

May 2 - Toronto Raptors @ Nets Brooklyn

We know there will be June 1 th match, but is that the Raptors will have to experiment on July 1 th match? If teams had to win all games 5 and 6 - who divided the first four games, Toronto will end its July 1 th game since the 2001 playoffs facing Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers. Knowing that these two teams have played in all physical games throughout the season, do not expect that one or the other does not give an inch to the other over the two games. Game 6 will probably be one of the most intense of the series, both teams wanting to enjoy a rest after a series already very demanding.

Other games are to be determined and we will all update as the results are known.
