Pacers Avoid NBA Playoff Ouster as Thunder, Warriors Survive Too

May 2 (Bloomberg) -- The Indiana Pacers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors all avoided elimination and forced decisive Game 7s by winning in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

The victories last night tied up their best-of-seven series at three games apiece and set up deciding games tomorrow.

The Pacers used a 16-4 run in the final three minutes of the game to defeat the host Atlanta Hawks 95-88.

David West and Paul George scored 24 points apiece for Indiana, the top seed in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks went 38-44 this season and struggled to capture the conference’s eighth seed from the New York Knicks.

Kevin Durant had 36 points and 10 rebounds to lead Oklahoma City to a 104-84 victory at the Memphis Grizzlies. The previous four games in the series had gone to overtime.

The only home team to win last night was the Warriors, who held on for a 100-99 victory against the Los Angeles Clippers. Stephen Curry had 24 points and nine assists for Golden State.

There are three NBA playoff games tonight.

The Toronto Raptors take a 3-2 lead into their game at the Brooklyn Nets; the San Antonio Spurs hold a 3-2 margin heading into their contest at the Dallas Mavericks, and the Portland Trail Blazers are at home with a 3-2 lead in their series against the Houston Rockets.
