Buckle up. This NBA postseason is going to be a ride. There arguably have never been more teams with a legitimate shot at winning a championship, and questions are being answered with playoff action underway. The Boston Celtics look like they could be the team to beat in the East, and they’ll go for a sweep of the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night. The 76ers, Bucks and Heat all can also advance to the second round with one more win.

In the West, three of the four series are tied, 2-2. That includes the Mavericks vs. Jazz, who meet in Game 5 on Monday night. The Warriors, meanwhile, have a 3-1 lead over the Nuggets, but Denver avoided a sweep on Sunday.

The 2022 NBA playoff schedule for the first round can be found below and we’ll update the dates and start times as announced. Every game on NBATV, ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC can be streamed via fuboTV (Try for free).
