The Philadelphia 76ers and Portland Trail Blazers took care of business last night on their home courts to stay alive in their respective conference semifinal series. Tonight, it’s the Houston Rockets turn to see if they can use the home-court advantage to survive. The Rockets are down 2-games-to-3 in their best-of-seven series against Golden State after the Warriors 104-99 victory in Game 5. But the Warriors win came with a high price as Kevin Durant suffered a calf strain that will keep him out for the remainder of this series. To get Dunkel’s pick for tonight’s contest, click HERE.
