(SB Nation Arizona) The 2012 NBA Playoff schedule rolls along and Friday night at least one series took an interesting turn. The Chicago Bulls are now trailing the Philadelphia 76ers 1-2 in their series. The Bulls suffered another injury blow when Joakim Noah went down with a turned ankle. On the flip side, Evan Turner is having a break out performance in this postseason.

On other games, the Lakers (not surprisingly) dropped a road game to the Nuggets but still lead 2-1 in that series. The Celtics had a tough time of it, but they still beat the Hawks and are also up 2-1 over Atlanta.

Saturday's NBA Playoff schedule brings us four games:

Indiana Pacers at Orlando Magic at 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 p.m. PT on ESPN

The Pacers will continue to roll. Watch this game if you must (or if you are related to one of the participants) but otherwise, use this time to take care of your weekend chores.

Memphis Grizzlies at Los Angeles Clippers at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT on ESPN

This is the game to watch. A lot of people think the Grizzlies have a legitimate chance at coming out of the West. If that's true, they are going to need to do what the Thunder did and take care of business on the road. This series has also gotten chippy already so when you combine that with the talent on the floor, this could be fun.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Dallas Mavericks at 7:30 p.m. ET / 4:30 p.m. PT on TNT

The Thunder are up 3-0 in this series. I would be a bit surprised to see them close out on the road, but you never know.

San Antonio Spurs at Utah Jazz at 10:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. on TNT

The Spurs will (likely) lose one of their next two road games before winning this series in five games. Will it be this one or the next one? Tune in to find out. Or just read a recap somewhere, either way.
