There is no shortage of NBA action on this Sunday, as nine different games populate the league’s schedule.
The game of the day could very well occur in Philadelphia, where the 76ers will host the Indiana Pacers in a battle for playoff seeding in the Eastern Conference. Entering the match-up, the Pacers sit at third in the East, while the Sixers occupy the fourth position. However, with a win, the Sixers would pass the Pacers and take control of the third spot, while a loss would knock them back down to fifth, behind the Boston Celtics.
Elsewhere, the Heat (currently eighth in the East) will host the Raptors (second in the East) in another battle between Eastern Conference playoff teams, and two Texas teams will go head-to-head in Dallas when the Mavericks host the Rockets.
