It’s Game 6 for four teams tonight and two of them are on the verge of winning the second-round series of the NBA Playoffs.

Miami Heat @ Philadelphia 76ers - 7:00 p.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. PT

Top seed Miami Heat will be going for a second straight victory over the Philadelphia 76ers to bag the semifinal round this evening. Despite missing All-Star guard Kyle Lowry, the Heat blew out the 76ers with a 120-85 victory and took back the lead in the series, 3-2. Star forward Jimmy Butler rose to the occasion and led Miami with 23 points, nine rebounds, and six assists.

The Heat simply shut the Sixers down, winning with a 35-point lead that is the team’s second largest margin of the season. Joel Embiid helped Philadelphia stay alive in the game by winning Games 3 and 4, but his injuries continue to trouble him. He looked to be in a lot of pain after Dewayne Dedmon hit a ball into his face, which is still recovering from an orbital fracture.

Phoenix Suns @ Dallas Mavericks - 9:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. PT

The Phoenix Suns are also coming from a blowout win, overwhelming the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5, 110-80. Devin Booker led the charge with 28 points, making 12 of them during a third quarter surge that left Dallas in the dust.

Luka Doncic racked up 28 points and 11 rebounds for the Mavericks, but it was simply not enough. Jalen Brunson contributed 21 points, while Davis Bertans recorded 10. The Mavs only made 8 of 32 three-point attempts.

The Suns lead the series 3-2.
