GLEN HEAD, N.Y. - eTradeWire -- The field of eight conference semifinal teams is nearly complete in the Strat-O-Matic simulation of the NBA playoffs, as three squads earned Game Seven wins in Saturday's action.

In Denver, the seventh-seeded Mavericks won their third road contest of the series, riding 23 points from Tim Hardaway Jr., including a game-winning three-pointer with 0:19 left in overtime, and a 20-point, 10-rebound, eight assist effort from Luka Doncic to a 120-119 come-from behind win over the West second-seeded Nuggets. The Mavs draw the #3 Clippers, opening the series in Los Angeles on Monday.

It was much less competitive north of the border, as the host and #2 seeded Raptors blitzed Orlando, 131-100. Pascal Siakam led all scorers with 30. Toronto host #3 Boston on Monday in the conference semifinal opener.
