dvance to the next round with a 4-3 series win.

Victor Oladipo led the Pacers with 30 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. Darren Collison added 23 points, but Indiana’s big men struggled to find points in game seven.

The Cavaliers will now play the top-seeded Raptors in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.

HOT HARDEN

James Harden led the Houston Rockets to a 110-96 game-one victory over the Utah Jazz by scoring a game-high 41 points with eight rebounds and seven assists. Harden struggled with his shot last series but appears back in form for a potential long playoff run.

MITCHELL TAUGHT A LESSON

Star Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell received a lesson from Harden and the Rockets in game one. Mitchell scored 21 points but shot nine of 22 from the field (one of seven from three-point range). The Jazz, playing without Ricky Rubio, needed Mitchell to be more efficient.

76ERS AT CELTICS

Add Jaylen Brown to the list of Celtics stars nursing injuries. Boston have been plagued by injuries all season but just keep winning games. The 76ers ended the regular season hot and made quick work of the Heat in round one. The combination of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Dario Saric and J.J. Redick has been too much for teams to handle.
