It doesn’t get much better than this

If you’re not excited about tonight’s NBA playoff games, you’d better check your pulse. This is what the postseason is all about: do-or-die, back-against-the-wall, nail-biting excitement.

In tonight’s undercard, Tracy McGrady and the Houston Rockets, holding a 3-2 edge over the Utah Jazz, will try to put the finishing touches on their first-round opponents. If they succeed, McGrady will advance to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in his career.

In the main event, the No. 1-seeded Dallas Mavericks, down 2-3 to the No. 8 Golden State Warriors, will try to stave off elimination and force a Game 7 in Dallas on Saturday.

The Warriors and 20,000 of their best friends, who’ll be on hand to lend a few words of encouragement, have other ideas.

Lead changes. Momentum swings. Incredible plays.

If tonight's games don’t get you going, nothing will.
