Raptors vs. Pacers - Game 6


Friday, the Toronto Raptors will have a chance to win a playoff series for the first time in franchise history -- but they'll need to do it on the road in a hostile Indianapolis environment. Buy tickets here.

Heat vs. Hornets - Game 6


In one of the more surprising developments this postseason, the Charlotte Hornets are a game away from eliminating the Miami Heat in the first round. Game 6 comes in Buzz City, where the Heat will try to force a Game 7 in South Beach. Buy tickets here.


Clippers vs. Trail Blazers - Game 6


It's safe to say this series hasn't gone as planned for the Clippers, who now face elimination in Game 6 at Portland -- without Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. Buy tickets here.

Islanders vs. Lightning - Game 2

Saturday, 3 p.m. ET

After pummeling the Lightning in Game 1 on the road, the surprising Islanders have a chance to take a 2-0 lead before heading back to Barclays Center for Game 3 on Tuesday. Buy tickets here.

Penguins vs. Capitals - Game 2

Saturday, 8 p.m. ET

The series between what several are calling the NHL's two best teams continues on Saturday, with Alex Ovechkin's Capitals hosting Sidney Crosy, Evgeni Malkin and the Penguins. Buy tickets here.


Thunder vs. Spurs - Game 1


Given an onslaught of injuries this postseason, this series could perhaps be the most hotly contested one we get. Buy tickets here.

Yankees vs. Red Sox

Sunday, 8:05 p.m. ET

The weekend wraps up with the finale of this season's first Yanks-Sox series, with David Price on the mound for Boston and Nathan Eovaldi pitching for New York. With a series win, the Yankees could march back toward the top of the AL East standings. Buy tickets here.

Several Game 7s

If necessary

Nothing is set in stone yet, but with four NBA series entering a Game 6 at the time of this writing, we could get a handful of Game 7s this weekend. Celtics-Hawks would fall on Saturday, while the other trio would be played on Sunday: Pacers-Raptors, Trail Blazers-Clippers and Hornets-Heat. Buy tickets here.
