Yes, the Chicago-Boston series gets three of today's five questions, and deservedly so. When's the last time a first-round series was as good as this one? In five games, we've had four overtime periods, game-winning jumpers by Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, breakout performances by Rajon Rondo, Glen Davis and Derrick Rose, incredible shot-making by Ben Gordon, an officiating controversy (Rajon Rondo's foul on Brad Miller...flagrant or not?) and so much more. Unless you're a Celtics fan, you have to be rooting for a Game 7, right? Complete playoff coverage | Scores, schedule | NBA Playoff Central
Will the Bulls bounce back?
Chicago had a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter of Game 5 in Boston. Ben Gordon had a chance to win it at the end of regulation. Then Brad Miller had a chance to tie it at the end of overtime. Instead, the Bulls blew a golden opportunity to take a 3-2 series lead and now face possible elimination tonight in Chicago. Their resilience and mental toughness will be put to the test, but there's no reason to think Ben Gordon, Derrick Rose and Co. will back down from the defending champs. Other than Game 3 in Chicago, the Bulls have played with as much intensity and fearlessness as the Celtics. Expect more of the same in Game 6.

Are the Blazers going to be roadkill?
Home court figured to be big in the Rockets-Blazers series since both teams won over 80 percent of their home games and were under .500 on the road this season. But Portland blew its advantage with a Game 1 dud at the Rose Garden. Since then, the home team has won each game. Now the Blazers, down 3-2, face elimination unless they can figure out a way to win in Houston tonight. One thing they need is a big game from LaMarcus Aldridge, who has averaged 26 points in Portland's two wins and 13 in the three losses.

Who's the best player on the court?
Part of the beauty of the Celtics-Bulls series is that a different hero has emerged each game. It was Derrick Rose in Game 1, Ray Allen in Game 2, Rajon Rondo in Game 3, Ben Gordon in Game 4 and Paul Pierce (pictured) in Game 5. Rondo has been the most consistently excellent player for either team, but even role players like Glen Davis, Tyrus Thomas, Joakim Noah and Kirk Hinrich have had their moments. These may not be two great teams, not with Kevin Garnett out, but it's a series full of great plays. Who will make the next one? Complete playoff coverage | Scores, schedule | NBA Playoff Central
Can Orlando win without Dwight Howard?
The Magic must be happy they don't have to win Game 6 in Philadelphia tonight. Up 3-2 in the series, they'll be without their All-Star center and their starting shooting guard, both due to Howard's powerful elbows. First Howard inadvertently fractured teammate Courtney Lee's sinus while blocking a shot in the first quarter of Game 5. Lee, who averaged 15.8 points in the first four games, will miss Game 6 and his status is uncertain for the rest of the series. Howard later elbowed Sixers center Samuel Dalembert in the head, a blow that earned him a technical foul (but not an ejection) at the time. After reviewing the play, the NBA suspended Howard for one game, meaning Marcin Gortat (pictured) will man the middle for the Magic tonight. Suffice to say he isn't Superman.
