It was an exhilarating night of playoff basketball as three teams entered tonight's fixtures on the brink of being eliminated in the first round. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks all fought tooth and nail and managed to force a game 6 in their respective series.
Orlando Magic 103 vs 104 Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cleveland Cavaliers emerged victorious in a nail-biting Game 5 against the Orlando Magic, taking a 3-2 lead in their Eastern Conference series. Despite missing starting center Jarrett Allen due to a bruised rib, Cleveland received crucial contributions from role players like Max Strus (16 points) and Marcus Morris Sr. (12 points).
Donovan Mitchell (28 points) and Darius Garland (23 points) remained the offensive leaders, but it was rookie Evan Mobley's block on Franz Wagner's layup attempt in the final seconds that sealed the win. The Cavaliers have forced a game six after going 3-1 down to start the series.
Philadelphia 76ers 112 vs 106 New York Knicks
In a thrilling Game 5 showdown, the Philadelphia 76ers staved off elimination with a dramatic 112-106 victory over the New York Knicks. The Sixers defense clamped down in the final stretch, holding the Knicks to a meager 30% shooting from the field in the fourth quarter.
Tyrese Maxey emerged as the hero, scoring seven clutch points in the final 25 seconds to secure the win. The Knicks, despite leading the series 3-2, were unable to close it out on their home court. With the series now 3-2, the pressure shifts as Philadelphia heads back home for a pivotal Game 6.
Indiana Pacers 92 vs 115 Milwaukee Bucks
The Milwaukee Bucks avoided a first-round playoff exit for the second year in a row, edging out the Indiana Pacers 115-92 in a decisive Game 5. Despite boasting the reigning NBA champion title, the Bucks faced an uphill battle against a surprisingly dominant Indiana team. The Pacers, led by a well-oiled offense, had secured a 3-1 series lead before Milwaukee clawed their way back with consecutive victories.
Khris Middleton stepped up in the absence of Giannis and Dame as the leading scorer with 33 points. The Bucks' defense, a cause for concern throughout the series, finally tightened up in Game 5, limiting the Pacers to just 92 points. Indiana's leading scorer, Tyrese Haliburton, was held to a quiet 16 points.
