In other words: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out of town, Redbirds. Celtics vs. Raptors, Game 5 (5:30 p.m., TNT) With half a second left in Game 3, this East semifinal series seemed like a lost cause for the defending champs. But then OG Anunoby happened, and now? It’s a total toss-up (kind of like the shot Anunoby hit to win Game 3). Clippers vs. Nuggets, Game 3 (8 p.m., TNT) Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Patrick Beverley — Doc Rivers can throw all of ’em at Nuggets star Jamal Murray defensivel­y, and will. TUE 8 Heat vs. Bucks, Game 5 (5:30 p.m., TNT) Is that a pulse we detect in the Bucks, who avoided a sweep in Game 4? With Giannis Antetokoun­mpo hurting, it’s beyond desperatio­n time. Stars vs. Golden Knights, Game 2 (7 p.m., NBCSN) It’s all Robin Lehner, all the time in net for the Knights against a Stars team that’s scoring in droves. A tip of the helmet to the two teams that made it out of a West field so crowded, the Blackhawks were actually in it. Lakers vs. Rockets, Game 3 (8 p.m., TNT) James Harden and Russell Westbrook might not have a chance against LeBron James and Anthony Davis in a dark alley, but this is a brightly lit bubble with roughly 842 video screens surroundin­g the court. It’s a fair fight — and it’s on.
