Tonight's games:

Heat at Nets
7:00 pm Central
TNT

The Nets got hot in game three and got off the mat in this series. They will be looking to even it up in tonight's game four in Brooklyn. The Heat seemed to approach game three with some casualness, and will need to find their higher gear, something they have been able to do throughout their championship runs. The Nets, meanwhile, need to stay hot from beyond the arc if they are going to make a long series out of this. Mizra Teletovic and Joe Johnson drove a huge night from three on Saturday, and they will require more of the same.

Spurs at Trail Blazers
9:30 pm Central
TNT

The Spurs will look to complete a sweep over the Blazers in Portland in a series where none of the games have really been close. The Spurs have gotten out to huge leads in all three first halves, and the Blazers, while trying to fight back in games two and three, have not been able to really scare the Spurs. San Antonio is winning behind Tony Parker, who is putting on a clinic in this series, and their incredible depth as they are getting major contributions off the bench from guys like Boris Diaw and Marco Belinelli. The Blazers will try desperately to extend the series and get it back to San Antonio for a game five.
