LIVE coverage of the National Basketball Association (NBA) continues all month on ESPN, with the regular season drawing to a close on April 17.
The NBA Playoffs are always unpredictable, and when it comes to the deep Western Conference even more so. From Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder to the veteran San Antonio Spurs, surging Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets, and tough Golden State Warriors, the West’s representative could emerge from almost anywhere.
Confirming what fans have known all season, the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat were the first two teams to book a playoff berth. Although they’ve made the Eastern Conference theirs from the start, upsets are a nightly occurrence in the NBA Playoffs, meaning the Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls or Brooklyn Nets could make life difficult for the favorites on their way to the NBA Finals.
ESPN will be providing extensive coverage of the NBA Playoffs, with up to 7 live games from series around the league during the First Round and Conference Semi-finals. Then every game of both the Western & Eastern Conference Finals and NBA Finals live!
