Easter Sunday Sports TV Schedule: Drop The Ham, Pick Up The Remote

It's Easter Sunday, and it's a time of celebration. In addition to the normal Easter festivities, though, sports fans will have plenty to cheer for today. From playoff basketball to D-Backs baseball, here's a look at what's on TV today:

10:00 a.m., ABC: NBA, Miami Heat @ Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat lead this series 3-0, and they will go for the sweep today. The Heat have looked dominant during the three wins: don't expect the Big Three to slow down today with the incentive of several days of rest on the line.

10:10 a.m., FSNAZ: MLB, Arizona Diamondbacks @ New York Mets. The Mets will be looking for their first home sweep of the Diamondbacks since 2000, and the D-Backs will put Armando Galarraga(3-0, 6.00 ERA) on the mound as they try to prevent it from happening.

12:30 p.m., ABC: NBA, Boston Celtics @ New York Knicks. After making a statement in a 113-96 Game 3 victory, the Celtics (like the Heat) are up 3-0 and will be looking to sweep. A few days of rest could be particularly beneficial to this veteran Celtics squad ahead of their (probable) second-round series against the Heat.

4:00 p.m.TNT: NBA, Orlando Magic @ Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks pulled out a gutsy 88-84 win over the Magic in Friday's Game 3 to take control of the series 2-1, and they will try to put a stranglehold on the Magic with a win tonight. The Magic, meanwhile, can reclaim home-court and (literally) swing the momentum back into their court if they can steal this game in Atlanta.

6:30 p.m.TNT: NBA, Los Angeles Lakers @ New Orleans Hornets. The Lakers asserted their dominance in a 100-86 win over the Hornets on Friday, and they lead the best-of-seven series 2-1. The Hornets will need a big game from CP3 to even the series today.
