Welcome to the Daily NBA Fix for May 8, 2014. Things have normalized a bit in two of the NBA playoff semifinals, with the Indiana Pacers and Oklahoma City Thunder both taking care of business at home. Considering they were two of the best teams in the league in their own arenas this season (Thunder 34-7, Pacers 35-6), the only real surprise is the fact it took this long to get back into gear.
We’ve got highlights, game capsules, the top and bottom five players, the Goose Egg, Clean and Sober and Ironman Awards, we’ll look at who’s circling the drain, we’ll throw in some random tidbits, we’ve got the NBA schedule and we’ll even look at daily lines for the gamblers out there.
Check out the highlight package below first, then get into the game capsules (home teams in CAPS).
